You see them everywhere: fancy dog carriers hanging off the shoulders of small-pet owners by brands like Louis Vuitton or Juicy Couture. Countless celebrities have them and, truth be told, it can be easier to carry your pup in a bag than in your arms, especially when traveling. Sometimes, though, it'd be nice to let your dog be out in the open, instead of stuffed in a dark bag with little chance to breath in fresh air. Enter the Puppy Purse, a hybrid purse/dog carrier that's soft and lightweight, and features four small holes for your dog's legs to slip into. The padded strap can be slung over your shoulder or across your chest and also doubles as a leash, allowing you to let your pet roam free at any time (additional tote-bag-like handles are also included). Reps for the company say the set-up is quite comfortable for your pooch, especially those with arthritis, broken limbs or other medical problems. Retailing for anywhere from $35-$95 online and in pet stores, Puppy Purses are available in a variety of patterns and colors, and in sizes small to XXL.
