What a hunk!!! wub

Just wanted to add, that after a week in NC hiking almost everyday, Anna's Ruffwear Approach pack did GREAT! It didn't slide, did well even when she got in the water (just didn't keep anything that couldn't get wet in the bags) was simple to get on and off and didn't bother her at all.

We did get a lot of comments like from people who saw the pack and were like "Oh! What a great idea! I need one!" and several others that called her a pack mule! But it was great to have her carry her own water, bowl and poo bags and whatever other small things we might have had. I highly suggest it!

Benny was about 12 months when he began wearing his empty back pack on walks. I didn't begin puttings things in it until he was 14 months and then just a toy or his poop bags.

Stark was VERY young when I started him with the pack, empty of course. I think maybe 8-9 months?

I started adding weight (keys, poop bags, lip balm (for me wink ) around 12 months?

Now at 18, almost 19 months old he is carrying about 1.5lbs maybe a little more in the beginning of our hike (water)?
