Dog cell phone bags: Cute or just plain ugly?

Proclaim your love for dogs with these cell phone bags.

Dogs and cell phones may seem like an unlikely combination, but canine lovers with a flair for mobile accessorizing have a way to combine both passions. Perhaps a cell phone purse with pictures of a dog is just the way to go. Cat fans will hate them, of course, but I have to admit that even a dog devotee such as myself is a little torn. I wasn't expecting the pinnacle of cell phone fashion, but I was hoping for something a little more understated.

Current has a selection of four designs for $8.99 each. Available breeds include a Yorkie, a pug, a black Lab and a dachshund. I'm partial to the latter two myself, but I think the rhinestones are a bit much.

Marabou featers anyone? Pepper's Pet Pantry

For $6.95 Pepper's Pet Pantry (say that five times fast) offers this little number with an adorable little beagle on one side. But unless you're Liberace, I think the whole cutesy effect is ruined by the rhinestones and the rather unsightly blue marabou feathers. Wikipedia tells me that a marabou is a type of African stork. Where they get the blue feathers from, I'd rather not think about. Bags with other breeds are available, including Chihuahuas (hello, Paris Hilton).
