You may have caught my post last Friday sharing the exciting news that handbag designer Maggie of Maggie Modena is expanding her line into fashionable and functional backpacks for dogs. Her Kickstarter Campaign is so close to being fully funded, but she still needs a few more donations to reach her goal by December 10th.
So, in case you need a little more incentive to donate to this stylish and adorable project, I’ve got some feedback straight from the source. Maggie’s dog backpacks are already being enjoyed by pups around the world! Here’s what some Pups Who Pack have to say about their Maggie Modena bags!
AOC BLOG GIRL: What’s your favorite thing to carry in your Maggie Modena pack?
WALTER: My cheddar… as in, actual cheese! I also like to store an extra ball or two in there for impromptu meet-ups with my dawgs.
TINKER & TANK: So far, our favorite thing to carry are treats! Our humans also use it to pack our food when we have sleepovers at Grandma’s.
OBI: My mom loves how it’s so handy to put her phone and keys inside! When we go for a run, she always hated carrying that stuff in her hand. So now I carry it so easily in my pack!
AOC BLOG GIRL: As someone who has used the backpack, what’s your favorite part about it?
WALTER: That Mom lets me pack it myself, therefore ensuring I get extra cheddar. Oh, and the leash attachment and adjustable straps (I make ’em longer for my barrel chest.)
TINKER & TANK: There’s so many things to love about it, but our favorite is the fact that it’s also a harness. It’s so convenient to not have to worry about putting on two separate items to go on walks! And it fits great!
BUBBA: I never forget anything anymore.
OBI: I love that it’s not only super cute but also actually functional!
AOC BLOG GIRL: What’s your favorite place to adventure wearing your backpack?
WALTER: Me and the NYFC (New York Frenchie Crew) got our regular spot at Washington Square Park. I’ll also be taking it with me to Florida for the holidays! Perfect place for my sunscreen.
TINKER & TANK: The streets of San Francisco! We go to dog parks with it, downtown San Francisco, to the beach, and I’m sure there will be many more to add to the list in the near future.
BUBBA: Forest walks, particularly long ones!
OBI: I love to romp in the city with my pack. I feel like a fashion forward urban pup.
Whether you’re a dog lover, a fashion fanatic, a fellow designer, an artistic soul, or someone with a passion to support the entrepreneurial spirit, please take this challenge: donate at least $1 to the Maggie Modena Dog Pack Kickstarter Campaign. Every dollar counts, and the more backers, the better!
