Before they joined the family...Okay, we didn't rescue these two little pups from a thrift store or flea market, we got them new. But all of our live furry family members were rescues. Well, they found us.
Meatloaf and his Pet Travel Carrier Set came from Costco. Lena is an Our Generation pup. Here they are still snug in their packaging.
Open the correct end of Meatloaf's carrier for reusing the box.
Then Meatloaf's platform slides out of the box. The bowls are under molded plastic, the bed and placemat are in plastic sleeves, and all are taped to the cardboard. Meatloaf is held in place by string. While the bottom of Lena's box opens to reveal zip tie anchors.
Lena is pretty easy to remove from her box. Just snip the zip ties, pull the leash apart at the middle, and gently tug her loose.
Her leash comes apart in the middle of the lead and at the collar so you can play with her with or without the lead.
Meatloaf releases with a few snips, but getting his gear loose is a bit more difficult...if you want to save the packaging. The book comes out very easily.
The bowls are the worst part. This is everything out of the box.
The inside of the carrier.
You can get a chocolate shih tzu puppy at Target in the Our Generation section for $2.99. There are several breeds to choose from. Meatloaf and three other pets might be found at your local Costco for $22.49.
PS. Posting twice today because we won't get another chance to post until Monday. Have a great weekend.
