My New Carrying Bag

Mom found this shop on ETSY [mom's favorite shopping site] - and had the lady make me this bag for carrying me around in. What do you think? We tried it out last night in a store - and it is the perfect camouflage spot for me....mom said she thinks she can even take me to the grocery store in this!!!!! The shop is SIESTA DOG - she has a number of really pawsome things - so check it out. You'll hear from her husband, Mike, if you convo with them - but the artist's name is Karen. They are both super, super nice and helpful. Karen sent mom fabric samples but, well, you know mom, she had to do something special so she bought her own fabric then left it up to Karen to coordinate it with accent fabrics. Didn't Karen do a wonderful job? She even put a little padded bottom in so that I will be comfy.

pee ess - Mom said don't look at the messy house or daddy's belly!



  1. Wow Checkers! That is the collest bag EVER! We're a bit scared now, our mom wants one! We don't act properly in semi-enclosed things. AND, we are total spazzes in the car! So, we're hoping she'll skip on the bag for us, but you sure do look adorable in yours! :o)

  2. VERY cool bag! I wish I was 'bag-sized'. (Mom says that I am, but the bag happens to be a potato sack... *sheesh*) Excellent ride you've got there! (And my Dad says the same thing about his belly. Silly Daddies!)

    *kissey face*

  3. Nice - very stylish! House looks neat, daddy's belly looks flat, and we love the sparkles in the photo.

  4. Wow Checkers buddy!! You sure are traveling in style now!!!

  8. Hi Checkers,

    Your new carry tote is pawesome! Mom loves the colors and I like that you aren't zippered in and can stick your head out if you want. Mom bought a bag for me when I was a tiny pup. I didn't mind being in it at first. But I quickly out grew it. Mom uses it for Banjo now, he likes being carried around. Have fun sneaking into the stores!

    Wags & wiggles,

  14. Checkers,

    Your dad looks very Metro carrying you in that um, dawg purse! My mom has tried to stuff me into a bag before but I usually protest. I do go in the backpack some times at the beach when my little legs get tired of walking. Seriously though, that's a good lookin bag.


  15. Wow a bag of your own... good thing I'm too big for a bag! But in any event the bad looks real nice and the padding sounds delightful!

    I hope you enjoy all your future trips in this bag!

  16. We could hardly see you in there, Checkers - great camouflage bag!!!

    woos, the OP Pack

  17. Checkers you look great in that bag. My Mom wishes that I would cooperate for something like that. I tend to bark and sometimes growl at almost everything. It must be fun to have your Mom sneak you in places like a spy dog.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  18. Great bag choice, and I love the new blog look. It oozes summer fun!

  19. Wow Checkers, you really blend in with that fabric. Maybe your mom and dad can sneak you into restaurants now!!!!


  20. fantastic bag!!!

    my roommate bought a panda bag!
    She is just THRILLED with it and can’t put it down.
