Dog Fashion Faux Pas?

For over a year now I have suspected some higher ups in the fashion industry have scoured this blog to search for the next big thing.  This time though they may have gone too far.

Then a few days ago I find out there is a product called a puppy purse and it retails for $70 – $100!  I was concerned Eko and I missed out on a million dollar idea until I saw this photo.

To each his own, but I think fashion has gone a bit too far with this one.  It doesn’t look very comfortable for the pup or person and from first hand experience I can say that it looks ridiculous.

Ok, so maybe Eko and I are not the intended market, but you get the idea

As far as I’m concerned, walking with your dog next to you or holding them in your arms will never go out of style.

  1. I DO NOT like the puppy purse one bit…….eck. The poor thing is just hanging there like a prop or accessory to her outfit…..some girls are just dumb….oops, this isn’t your sister is it?

  2. That contraption looks like it was originally meant to be used as a harness and strap for walking a dog. And, I believe the dog knows that — but his mommy doesn’t seem to – or doesn’t care. My friend bought one for her little puppy, Sassy, but she would pull out of it. So, we’re back to collar and lease and Sassy is a happy girl now.
    My big Tuffy cat isn’t having any part of these “pet accessories”. He’s what I call a free range cat, and only at limited times of the day.
    Keep up the great work, Will and Eko. We all enjoy hearing from you.

  3. I’m sure Eko let you put him in a ‘purse’ to make a point…especially when it’s something like that! Us dogs do have our dignity, you know.
