Today we went for a lovely walk along a lake, but even with frequent stops it was too much for Poppy and I had to carry her the mile and a half back to the car. Fortunately that is still manageable, even with the weight she has gained from being on steroids, but a firm based shoulder bag she could sit in would make it much more comfortable for both of us. I thought of wrapping the base with foam and padding so there are no sharp edges. Does anyone know of a good free pattern? I can probably draft one myself, but a starting point is always useful.
