THIS JUST IN: Purse puppeh

Thought you’d want to know.

A Puppeh-Purse-Combo.


Lissa R., after your eighteen billion sub-mee-shons, you finally made it. [clinking glasses]


  1. How cute!

  2. tmmkitten says:

    very prosh. and the perfect size for easy and secret snorgaling at work.

  3. Shannon Johnson says:

    He reminds me of my puppeh Toby. Toby would fit in a purse too.

  4. Ooh, cute bag!

    (And puppeh.)

  5. Darn, I just bought a new purse and it didn’t come with a cutie puppy. I want my money back!!!!

  6. Schnauzer Snack Pack!:D
    *scritches ears*

  7. [sings] Secret Aaaagent Pup! They’ve given you a dog bag and taken ‘way your cage!

  8. secret work snorgles! i must start doing this… my bag is also large, and my kitteh is very small. this is GENIUS!

  9. Redindiangrrl says:

    What every fashionable girl needs — Shih Tzu accessories!!! Shih Tzus of luv…

  10. What that pooch is ridin’ in style! a Birkin no less!

  11. COME BACK MEG! I miss your posts. You were CU w.o trying to be all CU.

  12. Also, that is clearly not a Birkin.

  13. Oh my goodness…. I love the Hermes Birkin bag!

  14. Whiska — I don’t know what you mean… you can always tell who authored which post (on C.O. by the way, not “CU”) by looking at the byline at the bottom. This one says “Posted by Meg on March 26, 2008 in Pups | Permalink”.

    Meg does 99% of all the posts here; she’s definitely not missing.

  15. Awhs, that puppy looks so sad. Maybe it’s just me but if I were a dog, I’d hate to be in a purse.

    Alright, I’m done nuffing.

  16. jennifer says:

    oh my god, birkin bag

  17. lol, that puppeh looks so pathetics! Must snuggle him.

  18. he looks a little sad. he knows he deserves to be in a real birkin, not a knock-off.

  19. I feel Lissa’s pain – I do! It hurts to send in beeelliiioooonnnnnsss of submissions! I bet Meg is glad she posted something of mine finally – LOL NOw I’ll quit bugging her.

    On the puppy in the purse!

    Shitzu is this years black dontcha know?!

  20. I think that i should buy a purse with a shih tzu face on it and put my shih tzu in it and see if people can tell which one is real lol

  21. question – does it come in “beagle”? want with puppy in earlier post = that would make my day for sure

  22. Is is just me or does the puppy look sad?

  23. maybe not sad, maybe just sweepy? lets hope so. I have a lil Shih-Tzu and she fits in my purse too :)

  24. Ok, the puppy’s cute and all, but where can I get a bag like that???

  25. Little shih tzu puppy?

  26. Can’t figure out if it’s a real Birkin bag or not. I mean who carries a dog in a $7,000 bag and doesn’t have a car with nicer interior? Must know the answer to this and other IMPORTANT questions.

  27. JennieMello says:

    Now, Peeps, THIS is a birkin.
    (Sorry for the non-cute photo.)
    Check it:

  28. Anasztaizia says:

    You should get a complimentary puppy with EVERY purse you buy! I might have more than one if that were the case >.>

  29. berthaslave says:

    I’m not nuffin, but the first thing I thought of was the South Park episode where Paris Hilton makes Butters her new pet. Something about pet=accessory is odd to me, but I’m a guy so accessorizing (?) in general is kind of a foreign language.

  30. CoffeeCup says:

    Seriously, I know that I couldn’t have been the only one who squeed over the birkin bag. That IS a real birkin, right? Not a knock off?

    I think the pup’s worried that he might have an accident in the (maybe real) Birkin!!

    Birkins come in all shapes and sizes, so it’s very possible that bag is a birkin or at least a well executed knockoff? I do recognize the Coach next to Sir SitsALots.

  31. Awwww, cute puppeh! And I love the happy mango-yellow colour of that bag!

  32. tooshypanda says:

    Gee… Birkin Bag with puppy!!!

    Its cute because its a $10K bag with a pooping animal in it… prosh..

  33. Hon Glad says:

    Pups sad, cause bag does not match.

  34. Hey, Meg has never posted my submissions either…AND Emma is a floofy cutie-pie! I promise!!!

  35. metsakins says:

    well, being I bought the current handbag I’m carrying at Kmart, I know not of what you speak. However, even when I shop at the mall, none of the handbags come with pups! Some throw in a wallet (got a lovely bag & wallet from QVC, Stone Mountain) but pups? So I guess I should being going down to Manhattan for my bags? Please advise, need pup stat.

  36. girlnextdoortn says:

    Not Birkin. No flap.

  37. JennyStar says:

    I seriously need to start shopping wherever you get a puppy with a bag purchase. Between the puppy addiction and the purse addiction, I doubt my DH would ever let me go shopping by myself ever again! The house would be overrun with pups and purses!

  38. It’s a fake. i can tell by the quality of the stitching. It’s also missing several other key details. Coach isn’t that high-end, esp. a basic monogrammed Coach fabric bag.

  39. Is the biggest issue on this blog at the moment REALLY if the “Birkin” bag is real or not? Honestly, who really cares? That pup is adorable, and that’s what this blog is for. Go find a purse blog if you want to debate on real or knock-off.

  40. Could be worse, Morgan. Folks could be debating whether or not it’s a genuine merkin bag.

  41. 260Oakley says:

    I’m not that into pups in purse, but Theo, I’m chuckling snidely over “merkin bag”.

  42. Bag Snob says:

    That is NOT a real birkin oh and ew coach! I dont know which is worse!

  43. ..but it is a real Shih Tzu! Or a Schnauzer, authentic dog, anyway!

  44. Birdcage says:

    New categories? Dogs ‘n’ bags? Cats ‘n’ Sacks? Horsies in Hermes? Birds in Birdkins?

  45. cheesybird says:

    Hmm… I wonder what kind of pup comes with an Eastpak?

  46. OMG….Come on! Who cares about wether is a Birkin or not…It’s the cute package inside that counts!! So adorable!!

  47. Arokthis says:

    He looks carsick to me.

    A woman got on the bus last week with a yorkie/Shih-Tzu cross puppy in a pack on her chest and most of the people didn’t even notice. Kind of funny.

  48. Aw, he looks like he wants out of the bag.

  49. sunnymum says:

    IMHO anybody who spends 7k or 10k on a purse/bag has some seriously misplaced priorities. How about handing some of that $ to animal welfare orgs? I know I know… it’s a free country you can do whatever you want with your $. I’m just sayin’…

  50. Theo – HAHAHAHA *stifles laughter due to being at work*

    Sunnymum – you go. I agree.

  51. HelenWheels says:

    It’s just a matter of misspelling, my friends. It’s obvy a “BARKIN” bag!



  52. hey, pooch… would you look around that bag and see if there’s a new CO post? ktxsbye!

  53. Nikki Lamb says:

    Please tell me that’s not a $6K Birkin that is holding the dog. :P

  54. Rabibull says:

    Kind of obnoxious to bag on someone’s bag when the person has gone to such great effort to bring us such a cute photo. Not saying you can’t comment, just sayin’ it’s obnoxious. The real/fake is an honest debate, but passing judgment is, in my view, kind of mean. Focus on the puppy, people!

  55. CoffeeCup says:

    Rabibull: agreed!!!

  56. Honestly! A commentrovery over a purse!

    Sunnymum & Morgan – Those things are not mutually exclusive. How do you know the purse/pooch owner DOESN’T give $ to animal welfare orgs, etc.? Why don’t you just tell Meg not to post purebred anything on CO? Don’t be such snobs.

    Personally, I can’t afford a shih-tzu OR a Birkin, but that doesn’t mean I (and apparently a lot of other people) can’t appreciate the Qte, wherever it is or however much it costs. It’s Cute, dammit!

    See what happens when the Cute-posts have too much time between them?

    mmmmmore cccccoooofffeeee….

  57. Mary (the first) says:

    I came here to BAROOOOOO over no new posts.. and found a commentraversy about the bag ?!? No wonder Meg may have decided to take a vacation or something (speculation). I mean .. seriously!

  58. meowandwoof says:


  59. catheartschanel says:

    A Coach and a Hermes right next to each other? I think you call that Purse Overload. :)

  60. I wish I could fit in one of those.

  61. meowandwoof, take your CAPS LOCK off; you’re shouting.

    And since Meg posted only a day ago, I think it’s a bit premature to send out the search parties. ;)

    Me, I’m going to search that handbag. Maybe there’s a kitty in there too.

  62. No new posts today, I’m going to cry like a baby, waaaaaaa

  63. NutherDeb says:

    Just one more peek at the cuteness already here is enough to keep me going! :)

  64. CathyDee says:

    But isn’t a merkin bag, by its very nature, unnatural?

    Not to mention itchy.

  65. Yitzysmommie says:

    I must be a dork, I knoweth not what a birkin bag is. Alas…..
    Re posts: I have sent in the pictures of my terrific SNRGL license plate and have not seen it posted yet. *sigh* Alas…..

  66. Yitzysmommie says:

    Oh, and, yeah, well – the Shih Tzu is Qte! Nevaire mind the pocketbook.

  67. anjali666 says:

    Aw little pupsker doesn’t look so happy! Hatingks use of dorglets as accessory, they people too–the small ones too have feelings and the hearts of wolves!!! Or perhaps Shihpuppy is simply hoping for cool new Hayden-Harnett bag to be hipster NY fashionista??

  68. JennieMello says:

    oh oh oh Theo—-the horrors. I just googled merkin and now wish I had not.
    Not cute.

  69. RJ, one would deduce that by NOT wanting to spend $6-10K on a Birkin bag, that makes SunnyMom and Morgan NOT snobs. Just a thought. Or, the people passing judgement on ‘ew, coach’ or ‘ew, fake’ – those would be snobs? Again, just a thought.

  71. Mrs. Catlabash says:

    Cutie-wootie Puppeh! And it are a “Barkin!” The flap is tucked in where Puppeh placed his Pawsie. Very comme il faut (Puppeh, and flap-tucked-in, both.) A “Barkin” in the iconic Hermes orange, no less, and if my eyes don’t deceive me, in Clemence leather. You can see the buckle peeking out right where the handle is stitched down.

    Peeps, a Puppeh in a genyooowine Barkin isn’t an accessory afterthought. He must be vewwy, vewwy pwecious to his human Momma if she’s willing to risk him poopin’ in an $8K (or much more by now, who knows) handbag. And I confess, there’s a very, very dark corner of my soul that wishes he would, as long as I could see the expression on her face when she finds it.
