THE BEST DOG CARRIER AROUND - HANDS DOWN!
As someone who has traveled with my dog by plane at least 40+ times, I can tell you that this is one of the best carriers around. I have at least 15-20 different regular carriers and purse carriers and they all make some mistakes that Vera Bradley has covered. These are all too important whilst traveling, not to miss.
~ My dog is 8.5lbs, this carrier can easily fit a 10-12lb dog.
~ Carrier is fully sealable, no velcro closes that make it easy for a dog to push his head through - very important!
~ Grommets on both sides for breathability
~ Mesh fully enclosed on both sides with privacy flaps
~ Shoulder straps are long enough to stay on your shoulder - and soft too!
~ Carrier stands up on its own, does not collapse on the dog or itself
~ Carrier has removable cushioned pad for the dog - fully washable
~ Carrier has safety collar strap you can attach to your dog's collar if you keep top flap open
~ Carrier is fully closeable with open grommets for air if you need to keep the fact that you have a dog with you private - no one will know, unless he barks
~ Carrier has large pockets throughout - I can add cell phones, collapsible dog bowls, bottled water, wallet, makeup, a magazine and more - so it serves as a fully functional purse at the same time as carrier. I have even used it as a purse/duffel carrier.
~ Carrier fit under the seat for travel if needed.
~ Carrier is fully washable
I would highly recommend to others and only wish it came in more colors because I would go to town! I have received a lot of compliments on my 'purse' - and have traveled 4 times with it already and washed it. No problems! WELL DONE Vera Bradley.

WORTH EVERY PENNY
I have had this carrier almost a full year now and it still looks brand new with weekly use. My yorkie Sophie is 3.5 pounds and she fits so comfortably, she can even turn around inside with ease. Every trip with her carrier includes her favorite toy inside with her. The outside pockets have her harness and leash, dog treats and my wallet. Inside zipper we have her shot records, brush, collapsible dog bowl and 2 training pads. THERE IS STILL PLENTY OF ROOM.
If something were to ever happen to this bag I would buy it again immediately without hesitation. Not only for the convince but because Sophie also loves it, she feels so safe inside and jumps right in when we say "let's go" I hope this helps!

Trinket loves her "Bye-Bye" bag!
I love this bag! I have a 3.5 pound chihuahua medical alert dog. (She detects my glucose levels).
This is her "Bye-Bye" bag. It has room for her, her favorite toy, treats, a collapsible bowl, her lead, service vest, records and even a few potty pads. When I pick up my keys, she runs and jumps right into the bag. I did add a small soft blanket, since Trinket loves her little creature comforts, and the "pillow" is not actually a pillow but a faux sheepskin cover plastic panel. The only suggestion that I would have is to include roll up straps for the top for those animals that don't need to be zipped in. I fold the top down into the bag most of the time since my dog has to have access to me at all times in order to do her job of alerting me.
I love that the bag is washable and that it is colorful and cheerful. I get many compliments on it. I will be purchasing another one shortly.
