Henri Bendel Dog Collection

We want EVERYTHING from the new Henri Bendel canine collection. As any New Yorker will tell you, the HB brown and white stripes are iconic-- and now your pup can sport them too! The must-have from their canine department refresh is definitely this sporty canvas tote (perfect for summer!). Not only does it have nice long handles (which if you tote your dog around + a million other things, you'll know are ESSENTIAL), but it's also incredibly reasonably priced at $68.

This chic collar ($68) also caught our eye- love the cute bow!

While we're at it, we may as well also throw in a tin of these delicious looking treats - why not?

Sleepypod Air vs. Atom Review

Can't believe that it's March and our move is seriously in less than four months…. so it shouldn't come as a surprise that we're starting to freak out about how Paddy's going to make the voyage. While the folks at Sleepypod were kind enough to send us one of their Air carriers, we also wanted to check out its smaller sibling, the Atom. The Air is fab (see our review here), but it is on the larger size and not the best for day to day commuting, and we were so impressed by the quality of the Air that we treated Paddy to an Atom. Ahh yes, she is a dog of many bags…

Anyway, we wanted to post this photo review/guide as when we are trying to do a comparison there wasn't much info out there. Hope this is helpful!

Here's the breakdown:

Basic Guidelines:
Air: Dogs up to 15 lbs
Atom: Dogs up to 8 lbs

What's awesome about either option? They both fold flat for storage! The Air and Atom can also both be safely attached to a rolling suitcase or strapped into a car seat for automobile travel. Both bags also comply with most major airlines in-cabin criteria.

As you can see from this photo, height-wise the bags are very similar, but length wise the Air is much longer.

Here they are assembled:

Both of the bags are light-weight and have a super soft bottom lining. Honestly, they both have their pros and cons, it really comes down to what you need the bag for. If it's for air travel, definitely go with the Air, but if it's going to be a combo of travel and day to day transport (and your dog is on the smaller size), the Atom may be the better pick.

You can purchase either bag directly from Sleepypod's website (the Air is $159.99 and the Atom is $99.99).
