A basic tool kit could come in handy: you could include a hammer, some picture hooks or small nails, pliers, a screwdriver set, a set of allen keys (I think thats what they're called - the little wrenches that you use to put together 'some assembly required' furniture), and little felt circles to protect the floor from furniture legs. Most of this stuff can be found at the dollar store, and you might even find a cute basket or bag to hold it all.
I recently got a chihuahua-Pomeranian cross puppy, and I am trying to find a pattern or tutorial for a carrier that I can use for him in the winter time.
The problem is that I live above the Arctic circle, and the winters here are COLD!! It gets down to about -60 degrees Celsius (about -75 in Fahrenheit) on the coldest days, and that is too cold to have a 5 pound dog out on a leash or in a tote. I figure the best way to get him around would be a sling or mei-tei type carrier, like you would use for a child, that I could wear under my parka.
Has anyone seen anything like this designed for a dog? I would really appreciate any direction.
