Now dog owners can carry their pets like babies. Small dogs have generally been carted about in designer handbags -- but now there's a new carrier designed especially pups. Similar to the way slings are used by parents to hold their babies, the Puppoose enables owners to transport their pets in fashionable comfort - and is said to be the first hands-free way of carrying your dog. It was designed by dancer and dog lover Shannon Beach, who owns a shih tzu, Ted D. Shannon said: "My vet told me the best way to carry a small dog is on your forearm with legs hanging on either side. I used this concept for the base of the product, which distributes their weight evenly. Then I added straps so I could free my arm, making it hands-free."
It costs about $65 and comes in four sizes and a choice of colors. It can carry dogs weighing up to 22lb. http://tinyurl.com/3e83lo2
