Dogs have legs, dogs can walk unless some physical issue presists. Dogs are companions, and deserve to be treated as such. I like taking my dogs with me where ever I can, but I do respect the space and areas that are not meant to be pet friendly places.

As for carrying one in a purse, I don't own one... probably one of the few females in the world that hates purses and would prefer to carry a wallet. Last time I checked, my little Binker-boy would not fit in my wallet!

If tiny dogs can go in a bag on a plane, then I want to know why my sister had to pay for the freight flights for her kittens when she flew. They were little.
(on a side note, I also want to know why my sister keeps buying cats outside of the state. Apparently they don't make cats in California. But that's another show.)

It annoys me. What annoys me more are the celebrities take them on the red carpet with all those people shouting and flashes going off. Little dogs are known for being anxious as it is, they don't need to go through that.

PetSmart/PetCo, I don't mind, I would bring mine if she liked it. I tried once and she got very anxious and scared. I like to see other people's pets though. I used to work in a pet store and every once in a while I'll see a pup I helped a family with all grown up and loving life and I love to see that the dog is doing well and the owners are enjoying them so much.

Other than those types of stores, dogs or any other animal do not belong anywhere else (except seeing-eye etc.) This wasn't a dog, but one time I was in an Atlanta Bread Company having lunch with my parents and there was a young lady with a love-bird type bird on her shoulder. ABC always has some samples of their pasteries out for customers to try and she was actually standing there picking up pieces and sharing them with the bird and reaching for more... Someone asked her to if not leave, quit sticking her fingers in the samples after feeding them to the bird. (And he was very polite and calm) Well, she started SCREAMING at him to mind his own business and the bird wasn't hurting anyone and whatnot. At this time the manager came out and asked her to leave as the animal being in a resturant was againt health codes. She was saying... "I don't see any signs that say no animals..." She finally did leave when he threatened to call the police with more screaming. All she did was embarass herself... It was crazy

Question?

question was if I didn't like dog in purse? I don't care where a dog is he/she is welcome. To be completely honest, I can't stand people in a purse mine or otherwise. I wouldn't mind if a dog where in my purse. They are completely welcome. They accept me, why can't I accept them?

Have been around this world too long to judge what people do with their dogs. Maybe they feel the same way I do. People mistreat you. I NEVER had a dog that mistreated me as long as I didn't mistreat them.

Maybe I may be cynical but coming from a background of abuse, I feel for the dogs.

Only my opinion.

I don't normally watch Dr. Phil, but did any of you see that woman who was on a few weeks ago? She buys her dog expensive dresses, she lets the dog eat off her fork, she wants the dog (who she says is not a dog but a person) to be the flower girl at her son's wedding and to host the bridal shower! Her future daughter-in-law is the one who called Dr. Phil because she does not want the dog to host her shower. She (the dog owner) even had fancy invitations made, showing the dog as the shower hostess! Sheesh!

Yes, Barbara, I saw that program. The dog owner was a bit over the top. I think she needs to "get a life."

Some lady had a dog in Wally World the other night. Cute dog but this poor child just wanted to pet the dog. She made a scene and it wasn't her fault, I blame the lady who brought her dog in Wal-Mart.
