Default Dog bags/carriers

I wasn't sure which section to post this in... buut
what carriers have you had for your chihuahua?
I'm in the UK and I'm wanting to find a bag I can carry Chloe in when I go out, which is made for dogs, preferably with a seperate zip part at the bottom so I can keep my things seperate, and a nice design.
I have found one bag which is white and really nice which is 35 from a site but I'm wondering if there are any that can beat it!
thanks

I only do fundles but they aren't exactly cheap but they do last, dogs love them and they are a lot safer than other carriers I've seen about. I strondly dislike carries you hold, your wrists can't always support carrying a dog for a long period of time even if they are light, they swing around and generally they're hard. But I do like the Pet Flys but thats more for transporting by car or for a long journey

They're about 60 from Pet London, you can also import them for more designs, you only need the small size.

Or Pet Flys just under 100

It's the same thing with I would only use Puppia harness you pay for what you get, they last, the dogs are comfortable and they like them

thanks for the links! I would carry the bag over my shoulder and she wouldnt weight too much, plus I'm used to always carrying a bag like that wherever I go lol. So in a way I want that style cos it'd adapt the easiest for me
also I definately want to buy a puppia harness in the future, they sell them in the metrocentre so I can easily go and buy one in person

I buy most of mine on ebay. I usually search there and when I find one I like then I will google the net to see if I can find a better site..pref one that has reviews on the items so I can get an idea of how they hold up. I have about 8 different bags but to tell you the truth I use my stroller and back pack more than anything else. I take my guys everywhere in their stroller except for grocery stores and restaurants. I have never been asked to leave anywhere

I do use my carriers if I am taking them in somewhere and do not want them to be seen. I found a nice bag that I like for this as you can completely conceal them but at the same time you can also open up the flaps and they can see out. There is a side zip pocket on both sides so I can carry my keys and wallet in them. It does not weigh that much itself either so it doesnt add weight to the pups My guys equal 5lbs between the two of them but they still seem heavy when I am carrying them in a carrier LOL!

oh man, I can tell you, carrying a chihuahua around does get heavy Roxy walks EVERYWHERE, she's not a handbag dog but the few times I've had to take her in her carrier (when we went to London, and going to the vets) she soon got heavy, it's totally different from carrying them in your arms that's for sure Also, isn't your chi just a baby right now? You can't know for sure what size she will be when she's older.

No bags here because they get to heavy after a while. It's a stroller for my girls.
