Put Pet Pictures in Your Purse when Traveling

If you've seen the Legally Blonde movies, then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about when I reference the Chihuahua that the main character toted around in her giant purse all the time. Now, I think we can all be agreed that that's not a very feasible or realistic choice of action, and I think it could be recommended that you might not take that road. When you travel though and aren't able to or don't want to take your pet along with you, there is something else you can do to make you feel more at home

You should carry pictures of your pet with you in your purse because that way, you can look at them whenever you want. You're not always able to take your pet with you, especially if you're flying, and that may be kind of hard for some people. Fortunately, with the technology we have today, it's not hard to take a quick picture and tuck it in your purse or wallet for quick peeks whenever you may need it.

Also, having pet pictures on hand may be good conversation starters. Having pets is something that many people can relate to, and being able to talk to people may give you an excellent opportunity to network and make fun connections. Just by taking your photos out once on the plane, you could end up engaging in a very interesting and dynamic conversation all started by the fact that you have and love your pets!

Another great reason to carry photos of your pets around with you while traveling is in case your pet gets lost or stolen. This may seem like a paranoid course of action, but if you're ever in the situation where you need a quick picture of your pet, you'll never be sad if you just have one on hand. By keeping a photo or two in your purse or wallet, you're already on a great road toward being prepared for your pet.

Having pictures of your pet can really achieve a handful of objectives: you can comfort yourself when you're missing your pet, you can make friends by having great conversations with others, and you can start the search early in case your dog is lost or stolen. So, I think we can all agree that carrying pictures with you is an all around great idea!
