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. Last summer I joked about putting Eko in a purse
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. hahaha! Too funny! hES READY TO GO!

  2. I hope this small little guy isn’t a boy LOL . I like the idea of a doggy-bag, but sadly I couldn’t find one in my size. Mom tried the trick to put me in a jogger, but sadly the store-staff smelled the rat :o)

    LOL! My sister and I are too big for purses too! We are happy to just walk along but it makes sneaking into places rather tough! Tiny dogs definitely have the edge there if they can keep their bark turned off!

  4. I’m with you on that one……that so-called puppy purse looks more like puppy torture…not that it has anything to say about it but it just cannot be comfortable hanging there like that. You and Eko have the right idea…..conventional transport – via leash ON the ground or in the arms…….not ON the arms! 😉 😉

  5. We totally agree with you. Eko may like being carried in a purse, but poor Will you may have a back problem afterward if you tote him very far. We think Eko and all doggies look better and have more fun on the ground enjoying a nice walk. Hugs and nose kisses

    Lol, you guys are so funny. Totally agree with you Will:)

  7. Jura says:

    Ha – that is perhaps worse than that Burberry baby bjorn I saw the pug in here!

    It’s a good thing you work out to be able to carry Eko like that. I think a shoulder strap would be more comfortable 😉

    Love it. I’ll take 2.

  10. Agreed! It makes me sad when I see dogs tucked into purses and bags. It looks uncomfortable and it seems undignified. I will tell you a nice story though. Our neighbors dog is now quite old and only able to walk about a block. Last week they got out the soft-sided wagon, lined it with a thick blanket and took Bruno around the block. I think he had a nice time.

    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.

    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.

  13. 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?
