TOto's Zippy stroller!

After the last outing, I MADE THE DECISION; we have to get a Pet stroller BECAUSE when TOto is tired, mammeee has to carry him! And mammeee has no strength carrying a 20lb furkid walking about a EXPO!

In my heart, I do not want to exceed the budget of USD50, so our selection is very limited!

We saw alot of people using the first DARK BLUE stroller shown in the picture when we are at the Dallas Pet Expo. That is the cheapest type of Pet stroller we see on Ebay but still selling at about USD52.00 for TOto's weight but the structure looks kinda of flimsy. 

The ORANGE Stroller is another 'Brandless' stroller that we see online selling for USD52.00 but Hubbie is very skeptical about the QUALITY. But the seller has lots of colour available and I love the ORANGE!

I loved the YELLOW Stroller but it is a refurbished and selling @53.00 which is also a very COPYCAT design to PetGear's Happy Trail (BLUE colour)! Daddeee is leaning towards PetGear's Happy Trail because it has some good reviews on Amazon.com but it absolutely EXCEED our budget; it is selling cheapest @$90.00!!

You can call me stingy but I don't want to get something so expensive and in the end TOto refused to use it! And in the end the money is wasted. If I AM VERY SURE TOto will use them, then I have no qualms about getting a good and expensive one. So we search on ...

Most better brands are selling for at least USD100 and above, and I am still hoping we can get a 3 wheeled Jogger stroller which is even costlier!

Mammeee suddenly thought of Craiglist and so we tried our luck there!
There are indeed a few sellers trying to get rid of their Pet strollers, and although there are a few good 'choices' but mostly people are selling their PINK stroller! But still Heaven is on our side, we spotted a PETZIP Lime Green stroller is on sale and only used once by her Chihuahua. This is one of the more 'branded' stroller we researched online too. I immediately emailed her and bargain abit more, and she agreed immediately. Hahaha it is indeed a VERY BARGAIN price, but we are not going to reveal here hahhahaha because we might want to resell it if TOto doesn't want to use them!

Petzip Sports XL is selling for about USD140+ online!

It was a fast deal, I contacted the seller 9pm, she replied and I collect the next day morning 11am.
It is freaking hot again, very soon after we paid and collected the stroller; surprisingly TOto jump up IMMEDIATELY without much coaxing!

The stroller is really NEW with some cosmetic scratches at the plastic which we realised is unavoidable during folding. And I love the matching of grey and lime green color!
It folds down rather easily too!

Fits into our small car boot!
And we decide to bring him to a AIR CON Mall for training!
He did quite well without Barking and moving too much.
But if I move infront of him, he doesn't allow that and would scratch on the net.
He looks rather grouchy in the net but I think he knows he has to stay inside and he behaved rather well too! Alot of people didn't realized that we have a furkid inside because TOto doesn't bark hahahaha!

Waiting for weekend to come and test out the stroller again but he did real well on the first try out.
He willingly jump right into the stroller from the car, and jump right into the car from the stroller!

I hope this Stroller can help us through the tough summer in Texas!


  1. what a good idea! good that they allow pets in the shopping centre in strollers :) lime and grey looks fantastic! don't sell it ;)

    1. Actually we don't know they allow or not! Hahaha but nobody actually chase us out so .... Hahahaha ~ But I guess as long as he sit inside quietly then shouldnt be a problem ba :p
