Sell them for golden retrievers thats funny.
No but I do think they sell them for St. Bernards in passion purple.

*sprays diet coke all over the screen*

My schnauzer girl NEEEEEEEDS one of these. Especially when it rains - she doesn't like to get her dainty widdle paws wet.

SO cute! I wonder if they make 'em for cats? Hmmm... on second thought, maybe not, ;-)

I am guilty of past nuffinghamery, and I don't intend this to be such...but while cute this does make me a little sad. Not indignant, upset, judgemental, mind you. I know that pet is pampered to a T. I just don't really like the pet-as-accessory trend.

On a lighter note, that third photo kind of looks like a hostess cupcake. Like, the strap is the frosting....

YAY! for PuppyPurses!!

Sarah J

Yeah, I'm on the fence about this. I like that people love their pets and want to have them with them all the time, and toting your pup around in a bag I think is sweet in it's own way, but *this* seems a little overboard. It does seem like the dog is turned into an accesory. Also, it doesn't look very comforatable for the dog. :(

It's The Purse That Poops™! Who doesn't need one?

(Christine -- I totally see the cupcake thing.)

Purse That Poops! That made me laugh harder than anything today, and I spent a good deal of time looking at the Peeps dioramas on wapo.com.

Now I want a cupcake.

Christine
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 12:17 PM

PS... yeah. Let's see 'em try to fit one of these on a CAT.

Theo
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 12:17 PM

Hostess Cupcake was the first thing I though when I saw the third picture!

While I agree that using your pup as an accessory is not good, I disagree that everyoe who would use this product would be thinking along those lines.I know my chihuahua would love this because although she loves riding in my purse when I go places, the transition from ground to purse scares her a little, so this would be the perfect way to avoid that. Plus, it makes for easy grabbing in dangerous situations. I don't know if I like the idea of the shoulder strap, but she's so fast that I would LOVE to have some handles.

 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 12:18 PM

The "ground to purse transition" comment made it sound like she doesn't like to be picked up, but I meant that she gets a little scared when I have to put her into the purse because she's not sure if it has a bottom....or something

nutmeg
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 12:21 PM

My dog would hate that. Then again, my dog weighs 60 pounds, so I guess it's moot anyway.

I like how it looks like she's wearing a giraffe costume! If giraffes had handles and zig-zag trim, that is.

 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 12:27 PM

I bought something similar for my mom's Yorkie Toy, except it's more of a backpack kinda purse... with leg holes!

Helene
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 12:30 PM

Can't they just breed handles into the dogs? That would be so convenient.

Seriously though, I don't see it as a "pet as accessory" issue, since obviously the prints on them are more for making the animal cuter than for making the person cuter. I for one would be quite hesitant to accessorize myself with giraffe print, but accessorizing a pet with it is more endearing and less tacky.

If this is from puppypurse.com, then it's one of the cuter ones they have.

I'm on the Hostess Cupcake bandwagon, too. Or is that "Pupcake"?

The Purse that Poops!
Oh, Teho, you are a marketing genius.

As for Shrill: "Do they sell them for Golden Retrievers?"

Why do you ask? Looking to herniate yourself?

Redzilla
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 12:42 PM

Do they have one for giraffes that looks like Bishon Frize (sp?) skin?

kgunn
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 12:49 PM

This is so freaking funny...
For those who aren't fans of the giraffe-print, the puppy purse is also available in leopard, cow, camouflage and something leather that looks suspiciously like doggie-dominatrix...
LOL!

I'm one of those 'they have legs, they can walk too' type of people. I'm just not a fan of strapping a dog across my shoulder. I have a bad back anyway and that would just murder it. BUT I do love that giraffe print and it would make a cute regular little sweater deal.

 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 01:03 PM

OMG, I actually saw a woman carrying her little dog in one of these about a month ago. Hey, I live in LA, I see all kinds of odd things.

It was funny because I thought the dog was fake until it turned and looked at me. I totally jumped - haha.

eikoleigh
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 01:03 PM

I suppose this is a decent evolution of carrying your dog in a purse. Really though this is just pointless and futile. As mentioned a dog has legs and can walk. This also puts the full weight of the dog on its underside, which for very small dogs may be ok but for the dog pictured or larger Im pretty sure itd be uncomfortable. Not to mention the potential chaffing of the hair/openings on the dog. Plus who wants to carry 10-15lbs on their shoulder for any length of time. :S
Duh.

Lone
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 01:32 PM

LOL - If I tried to use something like that on my lil' 9-pounder she'd kill me in my sleep. She's got a tough rep' to protect. ;) Besides, she actually likes to be a DOG, that actually WALKS. :p

wolfwhocriedboy
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 01:44 PM

While this would be perfect for yanking my Jack Russell out of trouble (MUST she bite the snarf of the biggest dog she can find?) she'd find a way to trip herself on the handles, then take it off and eat it. My cat on the other hand, might actually dig it.

Mouse
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 02:05 PM

Maybe belongs in the Cute or Sad? category. It's definitely cute, and I wondered for a moment if I could stuff my cat into one of those contraptions. But, it also reminds me that people still view animals as chattel or, in this case, stylish accessories.

One of my friends lives onna farm, and she told me about how they are breeding cows smaller and smaller... well she is holding out for a minicow for her purse. That would really be the purse that poos. (And moos...)

Kinda cute, but please tell me there's a hole in the back in the appropriate place. Could be messy otherwise.

#1. That look JUST LIKE MY DOG, except my dog has a half pink nose.

#2. My dog would love that. LOVE IT.

It's called a PuppyPurse. See www.puppypurse.com for more. I'm not affiliated with the company, but they advertise in the magazine I work for (a pet industry trade magazine). I haven't seen this fabric pattern, though. It must be new.

Theo, you don't think Bounce or Kenya would go for it? Not even if you told them how FAHB-YOO-LOUS they'd look?

Pooh & Tipper would DEFINITELY not approve. Pooh's 17 lbs! I would not approve either! *rubs shoulder*

hi....my earlier comment was because I was just wondering because Goldens are lazy :)

Shrill
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 03:10 PM

Now that is a great Idea! I can get one for my mom so she can carry her little dog around.

Shannon Johnson
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 03:25 PM

I actually think this is cruel. I mean who the heck wants to be carried like a purse! It can't be comfortable!!

Julia
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 03:29 PM

Unhealthy to forgo walking, but "cruel" is a bit of a stretch. When my childhood dog was elderly, we carried her around in a basket, long before tiny dogs became used as fashion accessories.

Gee, I wonder if they make one in newfie size! WAHAHAHAhahahaha!!!

Arvay

Gee, I wonder if they make one in newfie size! WAHAHAHAhahahaha!!!

Posted by: Arvay | Apr 12, 2007 at 03:58 PM

They might, but they'd also have to sell you a bulldozer to carry it around with...

I bet Paris Hilton's doggy has this in Giraffe, Zebra, Leopard and more. It is very cute though!

Sharon
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 04:33 PM

Tiny cows? Wha?? I haven't heard about that. I must check it out. The tiniest cows on the family's farm are Jerseys. They only come up halfway to the Holsteins and Brown Swiss. I'd love a li'l cow to keep me from getting too homesick.

AmyH

I believe my small rat terrier, Baby, was abducted during the night last spring because she was mistaken for a tiny cow. ( see http://www.cowabduction.com/ )

She disappeared from the kitchen at midnight and was returned 3 hours later crying, shaking and desperately scratching outside the front door. She claims she was taken up in a round, blinky airplane by Children But Not Children (CBNC's) (her description) and that they created a big thunderstorm to cover up the noise when they flew away. She's been terrified of thunderstorms and CBNC's ever since.

Oh my gosh, they have leather PuppyPurses and matching halter tops for the owners? This is ridiculously funny.

(Plus, the little fluffy dog is SO CUTE!!)

Christine Hughes
 |  Apr 12, 2007 at 06:17 PM

My dog would love this. However, she's 20lbs so it ain't happening. :D

To the nuffs...dogs should walk, yes. But when you have a small dog and are socializing that dog by taking him/her many public places it becomes safer, in certain situations, for the dog to be carried in some way.

another vote for visions of hostess cupcakes. i wonder if the company makes a dark brown pup carrier to enhance the effect.

Where's the cream filling?
