[/QUOTE] Anna, are there any stores nearby you that carries the bag? Have you looked into the large Alexa bag by Kwigy-Bo? Kwigy-Bo Dog Carrier Brown Alexa - Designer Pet Carriers Alexa Dog Bag. I was considering this bag too when I was researching. I think Sue, Snowbody, uses this one.[/QUOTE]

I was looking at the Kwigy-bo, but they don't have it available ANYWHERE I can find. Apparently production has stopped until they find someone to take over the business. I am trying to find the black one which is my issue.

Well, the tailsinthecity are showing unavailable.
The one with the white straps is $180 for some reason. That's more than the Jaradan bag.

Archie reminds me of Gus.... When I got Grace's bag he insisted on trying to fit... He is twice Archie's size....and totally flattened the bag!

What a great thread! I've been going back and forth between the Jaraden Petite Mon Ami in black and the Kwigy Bo Luxe Alex carrier for a while now. But I think, key work think lol, I finally made up my mind and am going with the Jaraden. The extra storage compartment for my ipad, the optional cross shoulder sling, and the cooling pad got me. Especially in AZ, that cooling pad can't hurt. Plus the discrete poopy bag slot is pretty nifty!

Pat, thanks so much for all the pictures! Its was so helpful in gauging sizes, not to mention your babies are SOOOO adorable! I was wondering, do you have a pic of you or someone carrying the Jaraden? I'm trying to gauge the size on me haha! I'll be the first to admit I'm that girl that carries big purses...I always feel ridiculous with smaller bags :/

Since Gucci is still growing, I want to know what the MAX weight you guys would consider for the bag. I assume she'll be about 6.5, but I want to know there is some leeway.
I don't want to have her crammed in there either. The bag I have now is so roomy and it seems like all these other bags are so cramped.
Opinions anyone??
I cannot say anything against the carrier since I don't own one. But what makes me mad is stores labeling things in french jargon just as a marketing tool because they think it's going to sell better. If you want to label something in French, learn the language and do it correctly.

Hahaha! Yes- marketing is key to everything that sells. By the way, the bag is actually spelled "Le Petit Mon Ami." I think it was just a typo in the subject line. Doesn't make it less of a marketing ploy since the company is from the US, but they make great bags so I can't complain!

These are all lovely carriers

I personally love the Jaraden SoHo bag.... ugh, what I wouldn't do for that bag! LOL

But... the problem with most of these nice carriers is that I live in sweat pants or, like right now - fleece pajama pants (nerve pain) so carrying something that looks so glamorous just looks really strange LOL

But I wish you luck in your choice.... Make sure to read well if you buy it online, many sites will not accept returns on pet carriers.

This bag looks so beautiful and rich! I wish I could carry a bag like that but I'm 5" tall (I should say short not tall) and it doesn't look right plus the weight... I found the "Pet Flys Puppy Sling Pouch" perfect for me and Dominic. I have the green one and it looks so good. He likes that he stays cozy and close to me and if we are on a busy place I can have my arms around him over the sling. Plus the cross body style leaves both of my hands free.

Sadly, I think I am gonna wait a little while longer to see exactly how big Gucci gets. I'd hate to spend $200 on a bag to have her too big to fit into in 6 months.
I DO, however, need to try to find something that is going to work for the flight I have to take. These size restrictions are ridiculous. I'm paying more for HER than I am for my own ticket, yet I have to stuff her under a seat that is 8" high. GRRRR!!!
I found some on Ebay, but I'm scared that they will be crappy. I guess I want CUTE and functional for this trip and I don't see that happening.
