This made me think of a cute comic I saw. One dog says to another, "My name is 'No, No, Bad Dog!' what's yours?"

I live where a dog would get eaten in my back yard. I miss having dogs so I enjoy seeing dogs wherever they are.

Dog are not ment to be in a purse.... if they were, they would be called KEYS, MAKE-UP, WALLET, etc. You get the idea....
The only exception to this rule is Belgium, where dogs are allowed everywere, even in restaurants, cafes, etc. where they sit by their owners.

I wonder if it is just me, but the very few dogs in purses I have seen in my area always look like they are frightened to death. I sometimes think "all I would have to do is say boo or cross my eyes and the dog would keel over with fright".
I have a Beagle, my wife has a white minature fox terrier or some such dog that we inherited from my sons friend when it was 8 months old. It is small enough to fit into a purse, but you would not like what you would find in there after you took it out. And yes, I think it would probably also chew the purse while it was at it, just ask my poor slippers.
She at one time had the idea of putting her dog into a purse, but after showing her the movie "Legally Blonde" she changed her mind, LOL. Besides, that thing is packed already so in reality it would take a second purse to hold the dog in.
My dog, named by my oldest daughter, is "Lassy". A Beagle named Lassie, go figure.

Lol, I said I carried my dog in my purse but actually she goes in the crook of my arm or a tiny carrier if she gets tired on our walks. 4# pup

No I don't try to sneak her into places but we do window shop together.

Gidgett has her own belly bag and she loves it. She loves to go to fabric shops (where she is welcomed) and only occasionally when she really wants someone to notice her will she sort of grunt to get their attention. She is well behaved and well trained.

Service dogs are relied upon for more than sight these days, some are seizure dogs, some "hearing" dogs.

As long as the dogs are well behaved they should be allowed to be with their humans.

I did a paper in college about hearing-ear dogs. It was an interesting topic to research.

My dog would eat your dog and your purse. He's not a bad dog he's just doing his job.
