Alf the Adventure Seeking Jack Russell

By Connie Ceuppens
17, Jan, 2018

Ross sent these pictures in of his Jack Russell, Alf, out on a microadventure in Scotland.

Alf found himself getting a bit chilly up in Scotland, luckily he had a trusty AlpineDream to save him! 

Dear Mr Alpkit

This is Alf

Alf is a (recently clipped) long haired Jack Russell who comes camping with Lorna and I. 

On the fourth of January we found ourselves in the Highlands of Scotland and whilst we were getting our camp organised Alf managed to get himself properly cold. 

Alpkit to the rescue, he was quickly plunged into Lorna's AlpineDream bag. With the drawcord tightened and with all those feathers round him and some biscuits inside him he quickly warmed up. 

The downside to this was firstly, he doesn't want to return the bag, and secondly you don't make a dog bed/bag. 

So on behalf of our four-legged friend, this is a plea to ask if Alpkit might consider making some Alfkit ... it would make our micro-adventuring dog a delighted lad. 

Nothing but a very happy new year to you all, and thank you for making such great kit which keeps us warm, dry and very happy.

Slange 

Ross

Thanks for sending the pictures in Ross. We have passed the 'Alfkit' request on!

Real good idea

Got to admit a small down bag for the pooch would be a great idea
