I am the very proud new owner of my own personalized DoodiePack! Mom had the idea to get me a backpack. She heard about DoodiePack at BlogPaws but did not pay enough attention, so she had to ask Sugar’s mom who made Sugar’s backpack. With my book coming out I have been busy getting my “image” together, and this was one of the items to be taken care of.
We contacted Kristen at DoodiePack to find out what she could do for us as we had some pretty specific ideas. She was most helpful in explaining how it all works with making a backpack and getting it customized. Since I couldn’t just have a basic model it took a few weeks to get it all together but it was well worth waiting for! When we got it in the mail last week, Mom was amazed. She said it is the cutest thing she had ever seen – I was a bit mad because I thought I was the cutest thing, oh well.
The DoodiePack is super lightweight, and it is easy to get into. The fabric is very sturdy and there is a reflective cording around the edges. I put it on and went about my business as it it was not even there…until…Mom started loading me up! I found out I can carry a small bottle of water, my collapsible bowl and a bag of snacks in the pockets. I don’t mind the extra weight to bring important stuff like that along on a hike!
Things were looking good until the whole truth came out! Mom said I can use the DoodiePack for hiking and walking but one of the main uses will be for me to sell my own books! What, me sell my own books! Mom seems to think that if I put my books in the pocket I will be so cute everyone will want to buy my book. I am going to test out this theory tomorrow at Woofstock here in Minneapolis. Although the official book release is September 19th, we got our advance copies that we need for marketing the other day, so I can take some books with me to Woofstock. I can also put some of my business cards in the smaller pockets on the other side. Quite useful.
Mom is still trying figure out how to edit video. She has a new program that she was testing out for this video. It is not a bad try, but she still has a lot to learn to earn my full approval!
Why is this fit for FitDog Friday? Because I am going to be walking around with additional weight which will burn more calories and create more of a work out than a normal walk.
Any dog needing a backpack, I would highly recommend looking into DoodiePack. We could not be happier!

I am joining in the FitDog Friday blog hop sponsored by SlimDoggy, Peggy’s Pet Place and To Dog With Love Stop by and see what other dogs are doing to stay fit!
That looks fantastic, we just popped over to see and I would love a pink one. I wonder if they deliver to UK . Have a super weekend Emma xx00xx
Mollie and Alfie
They are on the East Coast, so it isn’t as far 🙂 You could ask her, I’m sure if you pay the shipping she would send one over. Your book with pawtograph is going in the mail today!
Molly The Wally says
Emma that is just great. Love it. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly
Thanks, I love it and I think it looks good on me.
SlimDoggy (@MySlimDoggy) says
The pack looks great for carrying stuff and adding extra weight. If you are planning on running around, I wouldn’t recommend using it (try the K9FitVest instead) as it might shift and cause some issues.
It is more for just walking around, if I am running I can’t be bothered with wearing anything but my collar! It will shift if it is not balanced real well.
That is the best pack I have ever seen Emma! It’s so cute and unique and I absolutely love that you are going to use it to sell your books!
I think your Mom did a great hob with the video too!
Thank you! Can’t believe I will have to help sell my book, I though Mom was working for me, but I guess I can help out since I look cute.
Just perfect! I love how you put your book in there and can’t wait to hear how Woofstock goes! Let me know what I can do to help spread the word about your book 🙂
Thank you! I can put a few books in the pocket if I want to. I’m still working on promotion ideas that will start on the 19th, I will let you know what you may be able to do to help out 🙂

Back packs are great…never need to be without a drink!
Y’all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog
I’m starting to get used to wearing mine and it is not bad. I think it will be great to have!
Roxy the Traveling Dog says
Wow, you look awesome Emma! Love it. We have a Doodie pack for Torrey too. Very nice.
Awesome! Aren’t they just the best!
SUGAR: Golden Woofs says
Golden CLAPSsssss on your video. Your mom did a PAWsome job. Yes we do have the Doodie Pack too and Golden LOVE it. Have a FUN FUN FUN time at WoofStock. Happy Friday n Weekend. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
Thanks Sugar…I have to really push Mom to get things done to my standard sometimes. We could go “DoodiePacking” together sometime! Happy Friday!
Amber DaWeenie says
What a cute little back pack! Probably wouldn’t fit a weenie dog very well though. You know…long and short! My other pack members are too lazy to carry anything other than a piece of kibble! BOL
Have a great weekend!
I am long and short but not as short as a weenie! They make smaller ones, then they could put their kibble in the pockets 🙂
Very cute backpack, Emma. It’s nice of you to carry one… I put one on Brychwyn once and he had the most horrified look on his face ever- which was funny and really sad at the same time. What did mom use for the video? I need to try to do some video editing learning someday myself!
She used premier elements. She got photo shop elements 10 a while ago and it came with the premier elements. There are lots of good help videos on line. I think if you use a mac there is better video software, but I don’t know which programs they are. I like wearing my backpack!
Quinn, Carol, and Catitude says
Mommy wishes she could come see you. Linden Hills is one of her favorite areas of the twin cities! It is nice to make new friends in the Twin Cities however we can, though. And I love woofies!
Hopefully we will get some fun pics and have a post woofstock 🙂 The next best thing to being there.
Will and Eko says
Awesome looking pack and the video is great too. Now I want to know what caught your attention in that video – a squirrel? It looked like you saw something good.
Thank you! Lots of squirrels in that area and I could smell those pesty things…it just stinks like squirrel all over! In the spring there are more wabbits but it is squirrel season now.
Terry Cramer says
Wow Emma dog! You are really going places! A book, a backpack. What’s next? I would like a backpack, but mom says I have a little bit of a back problem, so no go.
Matilda the greyhound
I’m trying my best to get out there and be in the spotlight…that is where I love to be. I guess if you have back issues it would not be a good thing. I really like mine.
Jackie Bouchard says
Have fun at Woofstock! You are so cute in your new pack, I bet you’ll sell a million! Did you order a million??
I will have to check with my assistant (mom) and make sure she did order enough 😉
Oh wow that looks just great! I want one too ! have a great Friday dear Emmy!
Thank you, Mom and I are so happy with it!
Cute! I like the name, Doodie Pack. 😀
It is a cute name 🙂
Your Mom has some great ideas for you to sell your book. I have business cards too, but Mama carries them for me. And you are much cuter than the backpack! Woooowoooo, Ku
p.s. Mama was wondering if you are self-publishing or if you found a publisher for your book. I self-published mine, but we are hoping to find a publisher to get a much wider distribution. Thank yoooowoooowooooooo!
We are self publishing. I am trying to get some bigger exposure lined up and maybe at some point a publisher will find me but for now just self published. It is a lot of work promoting the book, but I think Mom has a good plan for us, at least I hope so!
Jan K says
Wow, Emma, you are becoming quite the working dog….selling books and handing out business cards! The backpack looks great. Good job on the video, Mom!
I can’t believe she expects me to work but I guess it is kind of fun work as it will get me lots of attention 🙂 I will let Mom know you liked the video.
Texas, a cat in... Austin says
I’m impressed! That’s a nice bag and you selling your book! You are one multi-talented doggie! I am eager to know how many you sold =^.^= I’m sure your Mom is right about the cute effect!
Tomorrow will be my first attempt at being a sales dog, so we will see how I do.
That is just so cool Emma and it is cue, because it is you!
It is totally me 🙂
Emma, don’t worry, you ARE cuter than the pack. Which is sayin’ something because that pack is super cute! Have fun selling your books! I would make Mom buy one if I saw you packing them around!
It will be fun to get some reactions today at Woofstock!
That is one fine dootiepack! Congratulations!
It is just so amazing, so much better than what we imagined!
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
excellent way to show off your new book and congrats on that.
Thank you. Now that it is all written we are on to creative marketing…step one…
Sue at Talking Dogs says
Great review! Looking forward to hearing how your trip to Woofstock goes 🙂
It will be our first Woofstock, so we will see how it goes. Hopefully we will get some fun pictures.
Emma, you’ve given me a fabulous idea! I have a Wolf Pack that I use for hiking and it’s pretty durable and has a lot of room for carrying stuff, but Mom bought me a Doodie Pack last year at BlogPaws and it’s been sitting in the closet waiting for a job. I’m going to be starting to do hospice visits in a few weeks, and it might be just the thing for that. If Mom ever gets around to getting us a cute logo (which has been on the list for approximately forever) she says she’d have to order one like yours for me! Thanks for sharing your great idea!
Glad you like the idea. It doesn’t hold a lot but it is good for what we use it for. It took about a month to get mine made up but it was worth waiting for!
It definitely was! Grandma has an embroidery machine, so I’m hoping she’ll be willing to put my name on mine!
Badger Boo says
That sure is a pawsome idea Miss Emma, mummy would like to know where we can get your book from as we’re in the UK?
Have a pawsome weekend xxxxx
It is on Amazon worldwide, so Amazon UK would be the best for you. Just search for the title and it should come up.
Ruckus the Eskie says
Great backpack! You look like a very educated pup with it.
Thank you. Mom tells me I’m a smarty pants, I guess that means I am smart?
The Stately Hound says
Thats one cool Back Pack…. I hope arrived filled with treats!
Unfortunately, it did not but I did get some treats to put in it at Woofstock.
Gracie Lu Shih Tzu says
That doggie pack is SO cute. I wish I was big enough to use one!!! Super stylish and useful.
I guess really small dogs never do seem to wear backpacks. That is a bummer!
Wow that is a cool pack!
Thanks, I love it!
I am sure you will sell loads!!
We sure hope so!
