The Exterior has two large pockets that can be securely used for your wallet and cell phone without interfering with the comfort of your companion. There is a tether strap sewn on the inside used to hook to your pets harness. This prevents any accidental escapes. The outside straps are adjustable and can be shortened to purse length. Feel free to call (208-377-2220) to discuss color changes. The tote is machine washable in warm water and cool dry. Simply remove the pillow and turn the bed inside out and place in the washer.
