DIY Dog Reflector Bandana


I realized recently that I haven't given any updates on our adoption of Pretty Handy Dog (aka Buddy.)

I'm happy to say that Buddy has been with us for a year and a half now, and he has adjusted to living with us (crazy boys and all) just fine.

With the weather being in the 100's here in NC, I've resorted to walking Buddy at night. Actually, I'm normally a night walker. On these nighttime excursions, I wear a reflector vest for myself, but I always worried that cars have a hard time seeing my mostly black dog. So, I thought it would be a good idea to make him his own dog safety clothing. A reflective bandana seemed like the perfect idea.

Are you curious how it works? Take a look at this nighttime photo! It works great. And he seems to like his new nighttime dog costume.

Buddy seems to like it. He wears it proudly on our night time walks.

    Oh my goodness Buddy is the cutest! I need to send this to so many of my friends. Here in Brooklyn/NYC you're constantly walking your dog at all hours. Necessity!
