Thank you for this wonderful post! Great job!  This is a great idea and thank you for the very understandable tute.  Jeff is an awesome dog.  He looks so happy and proud of his pack.  Being a huge dog lover, I automatically look at any post with dogs.  I am so happy I looked at yours.  Usually clothes and the like are for the tiny dogs, cute, but not useful for me.  I have 2 black labs.  We walk 2 miles together 4 to 5 times a week.  I carry a very cumbersome waterbottle/dog dish on a belt.  It is a pain! To be honest, if it rains, I don't carry it, knowing there will be puddles they prefer much better.  I like your idea so much better! My male dog will be ecstatic to have a job to do.  My female is kind of froufrou, she will probably wear one only if it is decked out in bows and lace.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

That is a great idea! Unfortunately, my dog would look at me like I was crazy if I tried to make her carry stuff. Of course, she is only 8 pounds.

I want to make one for my cats so they can go downstairs and get me sandwiches.  Cheesy

So cute! If I had a dog, he/she'd definitely be getting one.

Thanks everyone for the kind words!  I know the design isn't original, I looked at a lot of dog backpacks for ideas.  However, there have been many times that I've seen something I wanted to make, but couldn't quite wrap my head around it and a picture would have helped a lot. 

I look forward to seeing all the dog/cat/ferret backpacks you guys make!  Cats carrying sandwiches!  Min pins carrying kleenex!  It's madness!!!

p.s. Jeff now knows that when I get his backpack out, it's time for a walk.  The trouble is getting him to hold still long enough for me to put it on.

p.p.s. If I were to make one modification to the design, it would be to add reflective strips or make it out of neon yellow material or clip a red blinking light to it.  A couple times when we were out at dusk it would have made me feel much safer if dingus Jeff were a little more visible to cars.
