Default Jaraden La Petit Mon Ami

I am interested in the Jaraden La Petit Mon Ami carrier. I really like it and was wondering if anyone else has it and if they have an opinion on it.
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??

Yep, I have that bag. It's really nice too! Ava is 3 1/2 lbs and fits in it comfortably. It's pretty narrow though, so she can't turn around in it.

It's well made and nice looking and has plenty of storage pockets so you don't need to also carry a purse. I tried looking for a picture of her in it, but can't find it at the moment....I'll take a new one so you can see how she fits in it....

I have that bag for Gustave and while we loved it I stopped using it for two reasons-

1. I'm not very fond of handbags in general.

2. Gustave is a curious little fool who wanted to rest his head on the side of the bag and also stretch his neck to see EVERYTHING. This meant he was choking all the time coz the edges of the bag have no padding. I successfully wrapped a blanket around the edge for this issue but eventually just gave up on the whole handbag thing.

Yes, it is pretty narrow, but enough for Gustave. He's 6.5lbs. Thinking about it now, we might want to sell it. It's only been used 5-6 times. It's a white one.

I just got the black one for Christmas and the bag itself is very sturdy. The tradeoff is that it feels a little heavier (I think it's 3 pounds by itself). If you take the weight of your dog + 3 pounds, that's how much weight you'll have on your shoulder! Obi is about 5.8 pounds, 10x10inches (height and length from neck to rump) and he fits comfortably in the bag. It's narrow so I don't think any dog can make a full turn. If I want to close up the top, I usually take out the thick pad on the bottom so he has more room. But, he loves looking with his head popped out so I keep the pad in and he can comfortably sit up without choking his neck on the side. If the pad is out, it's a bit harder for him to pop his head out all the way.

The bag is very well made, just heavier than I had anticipated. I still really like it and it works well for us. Maybe try carrying around 10 pounds on your shoulder and use that as a gauge since you think Gucci will be around 6.5 pounds?

The black is prettier than the white one, I think. Wish I'd seen pics before I bought mine.

I do wanna clarify Gustave chokes on the edge from stretching his neck forward. So he wants to stretch his neck out forward while resting it on the side instead of sitting there with his neck out like a good doggie. But it's not the bag's fault, it's definitely my dog.

See, Ava looks like she fits in there perfectly. But she's HALF the size Gucci is expected to be. Abbey is more the size she will be and she looks cramped. BUT you said she loves it, so maybe they like the small space.
Gustave is 6.5 lbs...did he like being in there?? Did you feel like he was stuffed in there???
It is so hard to find a bag I like..of course the ONE I find I have to question size

Oops, I mean 5.5lbs. Sorry for the typo.

But yes, I find snug bags easier. Too much space = crazy doggy in the bag kicking around. When he was smaller I would stuff it with blankets to make it snug. And Gustave has indeed been able to turn around in this bag. I don't know how he did it, the top was even zippered up.

LOL! Gustave must be a houdini! I like the white color a lot-- I was just worried that it'd get dirty-- black is definitely more forgiving.

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.
