Remind you of any Chis?
Mine love walks too. And I enjoy walking them. But the purse comes in handy at times too, like if we are visiting friends/family, going to the city or downtown Naperville or going to a restaurant where pets are permitted outside or in certain shops like Nordstrom rack. They allow dogs, but they are not allowed to walk around. I try not to knock or pass judgement on people who like to use carriers. To each their own.
