After reading this post on FastCo.Exist no keeping your dog safe while shopping: http://www.fastcoexist.com/1679385/hundehi-keep-your-dog-safe-while-shopping I had to sketch up my own concept and show them.
Then our correspondence via Twitter:
@PTRagonetti Nice concept, Peter. Looks like a good alternative for dog-owners who don't feel comfortable leaving their dog in a crate.
@FastCoExist Thanks It is also good for a place like NYC where space is at a premium. It was a quick 30min sketch-up after seeing your post.
@PTRagonetti Impressive! Glad we could help with the inspiration :)
Fun day of sketching on Friday!
