How many dog bags do you have? I have two - the grooming bag and the performance bag. The grooming bag has all the stuff that I hardly ever use anymore, since I don't show Scout personally any more. It has all the stuff to pouf out or slick down or cover up. The performance bag has the six foot rally leash, the obedience leash, the agility slip leash, the dumbbell and the treats for the dog and the peppermints for the nervous handler. There is also a smaller bag with the doggie first aid kit - including the vomiting and diarrhea meds that I started carrying after last year's experience previously described. I just move this bag between the grooming and performance bags depending on what we are doing that trip.
However, since Scout was with her handler this weekend and Spencer wasn't in performance while I get over this bum foot injury, no bag came with us this weekend, which means I was completely unprepared for this weekend's experience.
So - obviously I just need a bigger all purpose dog bag (the APDB) that should just stay in the car. The stuff I took a picture of above would also be handy things to have along, as this is what Scout has been living off of. I am not a big fan of Minute Rice for human consumption, but I must admit these little cups are pretty handy for a dog meal.
So - what else are the essentials for the APDB?
