Serena Williams with Chip and Lorelei

serena williamsSerena Williams was back in Spain for the Madrid Open with her best friends Chip and Lorelei. You can see them all out for a stroll with Serena’s trainer and the physiotherapist, Esther Lee. The fashionista is carrying a very cute pink dog bag. We think it might be a pink Kwigy-Bo Alex Dog Carrier.

Serena was back to defend her women’s champion title from last year, only to have to withdraw due to an aggravated thigh strain just before her quarter-final against Petra Kvitova. She flew straight to Italy, where she hopes a first-round bye will give her time to recover in time for the Rome Masters.

Jet Setting Dogs – Tumi Has Products for You!

Cloud7_Tumi_dog bed dog

We just love Tumi products. They’re so well made and beautiful. We were thrilled to see that Tumi has come out with it’s own exclusive collection of fine travel essentials for dogs that travel.

This contemporary collection was created in collaboration with the Berlin-based, luxury pet accessories label Cloud 7. It’s comprised of thoughtful, practical and durable designs that offer stress-free travel solutions for you and your dog.

They’ve started out with 4 products: a large and medium travel bed, dog carrier and travel bowl. Of course you can get all of these products monogrammed.

  • The travel dog bowl unzips and separates into two pieces—one for water (has a waterproof lining) and the other for treats.
  • The dog bag provides comfortable and secure transport for smaller dogs (up to 25 lbs.). The interior features a soft, plush and removable lining with four air vents plus a side mesh window for excellent visibility and ventilation. Top flap also unzips to reveal a mesh window. The detachable shoulder strap doubles as a leash – that is really convenient! It also has pockets for accessories and travel documents. What else could your jet setting dog need?
  • The travel bed is soft with plush wool lining and folds up into a stylish bag with leather handles.

Of course, all of this luxury does come at a price: dog bowl $95, dog bed $245-295 and the dog bag $375. But for the luxury dog that has everything, money is no object!

Kobi’s Favorite Day and Travel Dog Bag

Dog Bag

Having a great dog bag is a vital necessity when you have a busy, on the go life with your dog. We tried out a lot of different bags for Kobi, but after trial and error, we came to love the PetEgo Boby Bag and Jet Set Pet Carrier.

You can see Kobi (with his friend Kelly) in the Boby Bag here on the left. The bag is stylish and lightweight. If I have it completely closed, people are often surprised I have a dog in it. It’s durable and Kobi has never even tried to destroy it. Note that Kobi did eat through some of the bags we tried out.

The Boby Bag is perfect for running around town (e.g. going on the subway), but not big enough for longer trips (e.g. plane) for Kobi as he’s almost 20lbs. If you have a smaller pet, it would likely be great for plane travel too.


When we need to go on a longer trip or travel via plane, we bring the Jet Set Pet Carrier. This is very stylish and fits underneath the seat in front of you when traveling via plane. We have not had any issues with flying him in this bag. People often don’t notice Kobi is in this bag too. It’s roomier for Kobi and comes with a variety of straps so you can use it as a handle bag, shoulder bag, back pack or car bag. It has flaps on the side, which allows you to give your dog a bit more privacy (e.g. if they are sleeping). It also has a nice comfortable double sided floor mat which can easily be taken out and cleaned. Our neighbors even borrowed the Jet Set Pet Carrier for their dog (Kobi’s girlfriend Fiesta) when they went on a trip via plane and it worked out nicely for them.

You can get both the PetEgo Boby Bag and Jet Set Pet Carrier in our shop.
