They'??re called pocket dogs. You know, the dogs that are so small you could potentially fit them in your pocket.
As the owner of a 55-pound pooch, I think this is just the funniest thing. My husband jokes that they'??re eventually going to breed dogs so small that we can wear them on our necklaces.
Douglas Company has answered my daughter'??s question of '??can I get a tiny puppy'? with its adorable new Furry Coutureline of over-the-shoulder purses for girls. Think tiaras and feathers for your little fido-loving fashionista.
This collection boasts 10 puppy princess styles (five of them are brand new) that take on the silhouette of different dog breeds. Think Pugs, Shih Tzu, Goldens, Chihuahua, Black Labs and Yorkies. Each pup style has its own name and is true ritzy chic, with rich patterned coats in vivid hues. These puppies are decked out from their ruffled collars to the rhinestone embellished ear accessory. So what'??s her puppy pleasure'?¦leopard printed Keysha Chihuahua or floral splash on Poppy Pug? My little girl's favorite friend is Karina Shih-Tzu (seen above).
Each bag is the body of the dog that becomes a 10'? wide fully functional purse, with a long shoulder strap and a zipper closure. Because every girl needs a zipper so her busy lifestyle doesn't translate into visits to the lost and found. Now your little lady can safely store whatever she wants in there (lip balm, hair clips, Milk Bones).
So if you can carry around your little dog in a purse, why not let her carry around her little dog as a purse? Seems fair to me.
