At the risk of getting attacked with tomatoes and/or knives .... that's just pathetic. Seriously, dogs are very well versed in ... WALKING!!!

I kind of like the baby stroller idea. I'm keeping an eye out for one, myself. I have a small miniature poodle whose little legs give out before mine. And I'm sure you can get away with taking a small dog like that into a store in stroller where as you couldn't on a leash.

Isn't the point of walking your dog to actually make them walk? Or is that just me and my canine ignorance talking?

My dog will walk till he starts having cramps or something and can't walk anymore. I don't think that's good for him.

Well, thats one thing..

But this dog was whining and wanting OUT, and sniffing everything in the store, (YARN included) and even the husband looked totally embarassed every time someone looked at them weird.

Yeah, I would be embarrassed, too. The only store I've ever taken my dog into was Pet Smart. I would be afraid of exposing him to someone who is allergic to dogs. My husband is terrible allergic to cats and he would have to leave if he was in the checkout line with a cat. :(

Woohoo! I could get my kitty into one of those, it would be great! And I'd have 4 or 5 layers of fashionable kevlar to go along with it ;-)

I take Nora into JoAnn's all the time. I just put a little fleece blanket in the bottom of the cart so her little legs don't go through the holes. She sits inside and greets everyone in her path. Of course, I need to keep her leash on since the day she decided to jump out and was running around the parking lot. Totally freaked me out!

I still sometimes throw her in the sling if I really need her to be still. Living in Florida, you can't just roll the windows down and leave them in the car. Way too hot! However, I saw a portable a/c unit at Wal-mart that might work somewhat for her.
