Gulpy Giveaway: Portable Dog Water Bottle

***Update: This giveaway has ended, find the lucky winner at the bottom of the post. Stay tuned for future giveaways right here at 17 Apart! ***

We love this crazy little contraption for dogs so much, we're giving one away to a lucky reader! Full details below the dotted line (if you want to skip ahead).

Basil drinking from the Gulpy during our orchard day trip.

We've pined over our love for the Gulpy here on the blog before. Once introduced to this clever little portable water dispenser for dogs at our local market, we couldn't get home quickly enough to purchase one for Basil. I like to refer to the Gulpy as a flask for dogs, but it's basically a water bottle with a flip open tray that catches a stream of water when squeezed from the bottle. The dog can drink from it like a bowl, the water stays contained, and you can simply toss the bottle in a tote bag.

Seeing that we bring our dog, Basil, with us pretty much anywhere dogs are permitted, a portable water option is a dream come true. We simply snap open the side bar, squeeze an allotted amount of water in and let Basil drink up as he pleases. Once he's finished, we usually still have water left in the bottle for later during the outing.

Today's giveaway is for the pink version of the Gulpy as pictured above. Sorry to those of you with little fellas — we weren't able to provide a more gender-nuetral color this go round. Being such a great portable gadget for pups though, it may not even matter!
