I can't understand why anyone would want to carry a dog (pet) as an accessory, but that seems to be what happens. There are some weird people in the world. I've seen a few of them on the Dog Whiperer. He seems to have to train the owners more than the dogs many times. Nobody brings their pets to my house. Anything that can't clean up after himself (except babies)aren't part of my guest list.

I don't mind dogs being in the stores. It's the dogs being in a purse that irritates me.
I wouldn't want to be in a purse all day, would you ?

Sometimes I think my purse is a bottomless cave. I could probably lose a chihuahua in there!

My mom's purse is the BermudaTriangle. Put a dog (or me) in there and you'd never see either one of us again.

Why would it "bother you"?
If the animal was "well behaved"?

Well, I do believe it's better than carrying a gun in your purse which a lot of women used to do. (and that was illegal too)

New business venture: Purses with pee pad accessories.

People with dogs in their purses have no where to shoplift.

Restaurants: As long as they're not dancing on the table when the bill comes.

Dogs fart!

Can dogs order off the kid's menu?

Which does your dog prefer a shoulder strap or a hand strap?

Is your dog to little to push the water fountain button?

Dogs can detect the difference between angus beef and french fries that is why we take them to the drive-thru.....to check the bag before we leave.

What irritates me about dogs is the dog poop and some of them bite but the owners deny it when asked.

My boyfriend was walking down the street minding his own business when a dog bit him on the leg last week. Dog owners will make excuses for dogs and accuse us of being doggist for any complaints we make about them but I think dogs who bite should wear muzzles even if they are cute and being carried in purses. Especially if they are cute enough for an unsuspecting person to try to pet them.

The dog poop thing is a big problem around here. While some owners clean up after their dogs there are a lot who don't. Once, my husband walked in dog poop and didn't realize it. He tracked it all through the house! He made a mistake and walked outside with his slippers on. So I had to clean the carpets with this special disinfectant and a scrub brush. The consequence for him, he had to go a year or more without slippers because he could never find them in his size. Finally I did. He always remembers to change into his shoes before going outside now though! :-)
