The other day I was transferring my purse contents from an old bag to a newer model and I realized that as a pet parent there are certain must-have items that every purse should carry.
For starters, you want to be prepared for any pet situation. This means you more than likely want to have on hand some dog biscuits, a travel water bowl, a spare collar (or at least, I do!) But you also want to have some items for your own benefit, such as lip balm, sunglasses and tissues!
So it got me thinking — what’s in your purse or bag? Here’s what emerged from my purse exploration!
– dog biscuits
– poo bags
– a Nylabone (in case I am delayed somewhere and my pup needs some entertainment)
– lip balm
– a spare collar
– a small towel (for drying mucky paws)
– my iPod
– my phone
– candies (usually toffee)
– a notebook
– a dog brush (for spontaneous grooming in the park)
I would love to know what’s in your purse or bag? Am I the only pet parent who carries all of these extra dog items? Is there an essential item that I’m missing in my daily outing arsenal?

Without question our pets are an essential part of our lives. They help us heal from heartbreak, comfort us when we’re sad, make us laugh uproariously and help us burn off that extra chocolate chip cookie. Why not immortalize your beloved pet in watercolour with a custom painted portrait? You can request accessories that illustrate your animal’s personality or choose a more traditional portrait. And they make the perfect gift!
