Members on our PurseForum clearly also share the love that the PurseBlog team has for both our bags and our pets; our Animalicious subform is among tPF's most popular, and members all over the forum share photos of their pets, their bags and, sometimes, their pets and their bags together.
Because we feel that the run-up to National Handbag Day is all about celebrating the way that our favorite accessories fit into our lives, we've assembled those photos, plus some from our Twitter friends, below. We'd love to see your pets in your bags in the comments!
This bag no longer belongs to tPFer FSUlovesLV. It now belongs to her cat.
Ditto Misstrine85's Botkier bag.
We love a Frenchie, especially when he's posing with a Bill Amberg man bag like @RealMattyMcBoy's Spike.
Here at PurseBlog, we don't discriminate against non-furry pets, like hierophilic's lizard.
Drspock7's pup looks way too worried for a dog with such a fancy Louis Vuitton collar.
Not only is it a Louis bag, but FATUME has a Louis cat.
ELLEvGirl's chihuahua is so itty-bitty that it fits inside a Neverfull with lots of room for actual stuff.
Vinbenphon1's cat will not wait for your permission to investigate your new bag.
A perfect head-tilt/ponytail/Louis Vuitton trifecta from tdc's Yorkie.
@ellaceron's black cat Holly G. appreciates her vintage Vuitton find as much as we do.
The tiniest chihuahua with the fanciest scarf from pursesgalore.
There is a real sense of pride coming from isis23's pup as it stands by mom's Neverfull.
Hedgehogs like bucha's are in no way excluded from bag-loving.
Peekaboo, I see markxmikesmom's pooch hiding in her purse.
@suzannishly's cat is showing remarkable restraint by not batting around her keys or moving into her Longchamp.
beanie, @drrramina's pup, looks as though she's waiting for mom to load her toys into her Time's Arrow bag.
Time's Arrow wanted to get in on the fun too, so here's their office pup!
Don't even try to lay a hand on this Louis Vuitton Speedy, because Mykur's Shiba Inu isn't having it.
Amrx87's tabby cat fits in a convenient LV carrying case.
The expression on Liberty817's pug's face is worth posting, even if there weren't a bunch of new Vuitton purchases in the background.
I have absolutely never seen a dog happier to be wearing a Louis Vuitton handbag as a necklace than kathyinjapan's joyous poodle.
Blue-diva's Siamese kitty seems pretty excited about the studs on her multicolore Vuitton clutch.
Who wouldn't want to open up a Keepall and find an adorable little terrier inside, just like Dixie79's?
Eyeloveu's chihuahua looks upset at the notion that he might ever be asked to leave her Graffiti Neverfull.
The head/body proportion of KPKITTY's unamused-looking shih tzu instead her Louis Vuitton Monty PM is pretty unbeatable.
I'm assuming that @daphdaph11's Cavalier King Charles looks a little bummed out in this photo only because he knows that the Céline Luggage Tote doesn't belong to him.
Oh my god you guys. I'm dead of the cuteness. RIP. Miffytoki's chihuahua and her python Céline Luggage Tote have killed me.
Another of Mykur's proud pups, this time hanging out with a pair of new Louboutins. (Which are not a handbag, but just go with it, okay?)
You'd probably be as chill as Princesskiwi2's Yorkie too if you had your own Gucci blanket.
Pursebop's pup doesn't seem impressed to be in such close proximity as a Chanel Classic Flap, which probably means he's rather hard to impress.
These pups don't look super excited about mom niknaks73's awesome collection either. Maybe dogs and Chanel just don't get along that well?
Dani3ear's pup clearly appreciates Chanel when incorporated into an outfit, though.
Last but not least, another non-traditional pet: Cocoa Puff, @Serene9713's adorable chinchilla, has made a home for itself in her Damier Azur Speedy.
