New Thinksport 17oz Insulated Sports Bottle Fits All Car Cupholders!

Long-time readers may recall that a while back, I told you about the most amazing super insulated water bottle I’d discovered thanks to ThinkSport. I’ve been such a fan that I’ve raved about it to friends and neighbors and even giving them as gifts! I always thought it was just the most perfect water bottle, being free of BPA, lead and all other toxic chemicals and so great for both hot and cold drinks. It never sweats and even has a mesh filter to keep the loose tea and ice cubes in the bottle when you drink or pour from it.

There was just one tiny thing that bugged me and that was that I’ve got a really tiny cup holder in my car and it didn’t fit. I always take water for Daisy & me when we are on the go, and had gotten used to our big 25oz water bottle rolling around on the passenger side floor, or wedging it between the passenger seat and door, but I really did the happy dance last week when I noticed that ThinkSport now makes the same bottle in a new 17oz size that is designed to fit all car cupholders!

Of course I had to get one ASAP and it arrived really quickly so I can already tell you all about it! We got metallic purple because Daisy and I just LOVE anything purple, but it also is available in silver, metallic green and metallic blue.

If you missed the details in our previous review, here’s why we think it’s so great:

  • Double-walled and vacuum-sealed stainless steel – keeps contents hot or cold for hours
  • Does not sweat (for cold contents) or burn your hand (for hot contents)
  • Shape makes the bottle easy to hold and cooler-looking than straight-walled bottles
  • Removable mesh filter keeps ice from blocking the drinking spout
  • Convenient for brewing tea on the go
  • Rigorous chemical and biologic testing to insure products do not contain toxic chemicals

I know we’ll still enjoy using the 25oz bottle when we go to the beach or park for the day with Woof Woof Papa, since it really does keep cold drinks cold for hours! But I’m so happy to have a smaller version that fits more easily in my bag and cupholder when Daisy and I are out and about for our walks or errands.

Important Pet Safety Reminder for Pickup Truck Drivers: Dogs Ride Inside!

Here’s an important pet safety tip for pickup truck owners: All animals should ride inside a pickup truck cab – never in the bed of a truck. According to the American Humane Association, it’s estimated that 100,000 dogs die each year riding in truck beds. That’s a shockingly high number but even one dog’s preventable death is too many!

AHA has partnered with Ford Motor Company in a new pet safety campaign called “Dogs Ride Inside,” which reminds all drivers that simple, basic actions can prevent serious injury or death while transporting a beloved family pet. Here’s what you should know:

  • Pets should always ride in the back seat if your truck has one. An animal in the front seat can quickly become a driver distraction and cause an accident, jeopardizing the pet and everyone else in the vehicle.
  • Restrain, contain or crate your pet with a pet carrier or specially designed pet seat belt or harness like the one pictured above.
  • Dogs love sticking their heads outside of a moving car, but that’s also one of the easiest ways for a pet to be injured, whether it’s from a flying rock or even falling out of the vehicle.  Wind can seriously irritate mucous membranes and blow pieces of grit into their eyes.
  • Be sure that all ID tags are properly affixed to your pet’s collar and that they have your current contact information, including cell number(s). Your pet should also have an ID microchip implanted – and make sure the microchip registration and pet license information is up-to-date. Consider including the name and phone number of an emergency contact.
  • Never leave pets unattended inside of vehicles. Remember that cars heat up fast – even with the windows cracked.
  • Visit American Humane Association for more pet safety tips.

Also be sure to check out the adoption and pet safety tour sponsored by Ford in conjunction with Fido Friendly magazine. The 5th annual Get Your Licks on Route 66 will be visiting 15 US cities to promote pet safety and adoption. In the first four years of the tour more than 1,500 animals have been placed in new homes. Go here to view the list of dates & shelters along the route.
