Animals Are Not Purses, And Other Obvious Realities

By: Julie Gerstein / August 18, 2013

I can’t believe we need to go over this again, but animals are living, breathing beings. They are not inanimate objects into which you can store your lipgloss, wallet and cell phone, so why, why, why, would you carry a dog around like that. This woman was snapped with Dog-as-Purse in tow on the streets of New York this past Thursday. I’m not saying the dog purse contraption hurts the dog or anything — it actually looks like it might be designed for exactly that. But it hurts my soul. And no doubt, this dog finds it extremely embarrassing to be toted around like that. Just look at the contempt its dog’s face! [The Gloss]
