The horror. . .the horror. . .

Everybody has his breaking point. You, me, Walt Kurtz, even Barky.

I don't know, and I hope to never find out, but I believe that Barky might reach his if we should ever attempt to put him in a carrier like this.

What is it? According to the PetSmart promotional email that I got with a special offer just for me and my pet, it's

A chic, designer bag to tote your pooch around in. Dog carrier has a faux crocodile exterior and a plush interior with removable carpet, ventilated mesh insets, collar snap hook, and inner and outer zippered accessory pockets. Also features a cellphone holder.
Hell, that's got more features than our new car.


  1. Okay, I'm all for cute things, but your DOG - a living breathing pooping animal - does not belong INSIDE A BAG. Maybe in a crate at certain times. But a dog is not an accessory. Looks more like it came from PetStupid if you ask me!

    Although...I could sneak a pup onto the metro that way. Wait - no. It's still wrong.

    well flying as much as I do I see this more and more. Cats too. Anyway what does a dog need with a cell phone??

    Now onto more important things, ME.

    Yeah, that's just wrong. We'd have to call you Paris Hilton or something and if that were to happen, I couldn't be your friend anymore.

  5. If I were a dog, I'd be nervous about climbing into anything that had croc skin on it, live or dead, real or faux. And those toothy zippers wouldn't make me any happier.

    For pup transport, or something small like a snapping turtle that you don't want crawling up between other passengers' carry-ons midflight, a pooch pouch makes sense. Barky's bigger: get him the rigid model with the satellite dish, not the cell phone rig.

    Just don't put him in a straw basket on a sampan, O.K.?

    It appears you have got yourself a new chariot without promoting its virtues in this space. Do tell.

  6. You can only get away with carrying a dog in a bag if that bag is bright pink and you are wearing no panties underneath your mini-skirt.

    Otherwise, no.
