Here’s a small dog owner problem: You can’t always take them everywhere, but you secretly wish you could. Like when you’re going down to the laundry room with a basket full of clothes, and the dog is staring at you woefully with its sweet little eyes. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have two hands free but carry the dog with you somehow?
Designer Shannon Beach feels your pain. Beach, who is also a professional dancer for Britney Spears and Taylor Swift, has created the Puppoose, a crocheted sling that allows dog owners to give their pets a lift without the bulkiness of a carrier.
