That is nightmarish. Whoever thought that would be a good idea should be banished from ever inventing or designing things ever again! BTW, aside from the utter hideousness of the design, it’s freakin crochet. That’s gonna stretch out and the dog’s gonna be on the floor in a week!
did you watch the commercial… creeptastic. actually if i saw this on a knitting blog, i’d probably be all for trying it. but the marketing is just creepy and turns me off. the dogs don’t look all that comfortable (particularly the Boston – i have one and she’s a 20lb-er). i just don’t see how something crocheted is going to be able to carry a 20lb dog ergonomically and comfortably, for either the owner or the dog. even if it were as padded as my laptop bag, plus i’d expect it to stretch considerably. in comparison, my macbook pro isn’t all that comfortable to carry around in a heavily shoulder-padded, slim/light-weight bag and that only weighs 6lbs.
