File this under "things we never knew we needed." There's now a water bottle that you can apparently share with your dog — and it's actually hygienic.
Part of a new Kickstarter project, Drink&Buddy is a hygienic, multi-beverage water bottle, from which you and Fido can both take a sip. As you can probably guess, this is a double-sided water bottle.
Created by Best Friend Outfitters, one end of the bottle is designed for a human mouth, while the other end is designed for a dog mouth. The latter features a flip-out silicone dish that allows you to let out water from the bottle the same way you pour the water into their dog dish at home.
In case you're concerned about backwash, fear not, because Drink&Buddy has you covered — literally. A one-way check valve prevents any of your pup's backwash from getting in your end of the bottle.
Check out the Kickstarter video below to learn more info about Drink&Buddy, and as a bonus, watch adorable pups test out the new water bottle for themselves.
Well, we certainly never would have thought of this, but now that we have more info, we're pretty intrigued. We imagine this will especially come in handy during the warmer months, when dogs get particularly thirsty walking outside. (As we all know, lugging around the actual dog dish with you can be pretty tiresome!)
If you're interested in buying one, deliveries begin in February 2018 — but you'll definitely want to take advantage of the early bird prices.
If you love your fur baby (who doesn't?), we guarantee these reunions between dogs and the owners will make you smile:
