Dog handbags: A celebrity alternative

Rather than carry their little dogs in a handbag, American celebrities might want to look into carrying the contents of their handbag in a little dog. Or so Stuffed Ark, a maker of dog handbags — like this Yorkie  ($38.50) — might suggest.
Stuffed Ark says of its fuzzy plush Yorkshire Terrier handbag, “Just shake ‘n fluff and you’re sure to turn heads.”
The bags, which come in about every small breed you can think of, also have removeable straps and collars, zippered pouches inside for keys and lipstick and, in the case of the Yorkie, a rhinestone hairclip. No word on whether they shed, but they are reportedly exceptionally good at “staying.”

I would have loved one of these when I was six years old. I guess a dog handbag is better than a handbag dog.

A medium-sized mutt bag capable of holding all the junk I carry around might be darn useful. Designers, how about it?

The idea of putting my stuff inside my dog and then removing its “guts” kinda grosses me out….
