Great Pet Carrier!

I found this lady on Esty. Yes, I find all my great dog stuff on this site These are Bella's favorite type of carriers. These particular ones are reversible. I've talked to this lady and she is very sweet and accommodating. I may place an order down the road. She also does custom orders. If I order, I will probably pick my own fabric and lining. Her prices are very reasonable too!

Here is her site:

Here is my favorite one:

I have the fundle. Bella still prefers this type of carrier. I normally carry her supporting under the armpits and chest. I think this supports her in that same way. She relaxes immediately when I put her in it. With the fundle, it takes her some time to settle into it.

ya, that's what I'm thinking. I bought a "bag" to put her in a few months ago and she HATED it. never really relaxed, was digging in the bottom or trying to hop out the top the whole time... no fun for anyone! She doesn't go a ton of places with me, but it would be nice to have the option of taking her into certain stores or a farmers market, that kind of thing. I wish we had a place that sold these around here so we could TRY it out to see if it would work for us. sigh...

I am going to go ahead and order one of these! Any idea what size would work? Tillie is about 9 lbs... I am going out of town next weekend and Tillie is staying home with "papa" and the kids and Papa has all kinds of ideas and activites he wants to do and I'm like uhhhh, we have a DOG, you can NOT be gone ALL day... I asked him if he would bring Tillie along in a carrier and he said YES! LOL how cute is that!? ha ha ha, so now to find a "manly" colored one and pray that it can arrive in less than a week? LOL (crossing my fingers!)

She told me her medium is 13.5 inches long at the bottom and 10 inches at the top. Her small is 11 inches at the bottom and 7" inches at the top. Bella has 2 about the size of her mediums, and they a quite big on her. She can be bundled up in a sweater and they still fit. You can send her a message, she is great with communication. I'm pretty sure Tillie would be a medium.

I'm having her make Bella one. She's shipping me fabric samples. I am going with a cow print or a brown tri colored Palamino print with a pink satin lining I can't wait!

If you want to measure Tillies chest, and back length I can give you a better idea if the medium will fit.
I'm ordering the medium, knowing it will be a little big. I would rather it be too big than too small. Bella is 11" inches long (base of neck to start of tail), chest 13.5 and around 7 lbs.

Linda, is that 13.5 inch length at the bottom the measurement from end to end or leg hole to leg hole? I would think it would be most important to get the exact distance from leg hole to leg hole, so the pups legs would hang/dangle through comfortably.

That's the entire length of the bag. I thought that too, but that's not entirely true. I have 3 other bags like this and the leg holes are slightly in different spots on each carrier. As long as the legs are close and the holes are large enough, once her legs are through the holes, they are free to rest in the position she is comfortable. The carriers I have, the legs holes are in the perfect position. I put the bag on the floor flat, stand her on top of it, line her feet up and lift. Scudder & Fred are longer than Bella. I wouldn't dream of stuffing their legs in her carrier They would be a little crunched!

This woman can also alter the size of the bag if you need a bigger size.
