If you had asked me ayear ago if I was the kind of person who liked hearts or dogs on my bags - I would have said no. I'm very aware of my own style and don't really do cute (but liked it on others)

Now I have a 'Sam' charm. Well I had to. If he had been on the large bag instead of the pug (who''s cute too) I would have had to indulged my Sam fixation even more. I loved the poodle too. They are so beautifully made.

Now they have shoes but I don't know if these are really me

I love the dog charms! I know some people think they're a bit pricey but actually, they're huge charms! I bought the Brando one in November but I wasn't careful with it. I clipped it on my bag when I carried it to the temple on Lunar New Year and this lady's scarf got caught on one of the eyes. Her scarf pulled the eye out - I still have to bring it back in to the boutique to get it repaired...

I don't know about having one permanently attached to my shoes or bags though...

papertiger: I really like the one that's on the gucci UK site - the dorothy one is cute!!! I wish they offer it in the US!

BTW OP the charms are generically termed as 'Guccioli'

GhstDreamer, I am so sorry to hear about poor old Brando - take him to the Gucci 'vet' ASAP.

I agree , they do look pricy but I can even wear Sam on my jeans tab, large chain necklace/bracelet and of course bag.

I would rather place mine on to the front of a bag rather than the side because of people brushing past me in the street or worse.

To go off topic slightly you are not alone with entanglements at engagements - I got tangled in someone's knitted dress by my CHANEL belt at a wedding. I felt terrible as her dress had pulled threads afterwards :shocked: but thank goodness it was her own fault! (KWIM)

Yup, dotty about 'Dorothy':

I love the Leroy charm, I couldn't resist it because I think it looks like my dog (only my dog doesn't have the GG on his body lol) :biggrin:.
Here's a picture of the Leroy charm and my dog:


Now that is just TOO CUTE! I think if I owned a dog/cat I'd definitely get one but I'm not a pet person.

Another worthy nomination for 'the cutest pic on tPF', perhaps we should get a Gucci thread going - starting with this and Jingy's apraisal of the hysteria. :buttercup:

You should send this picture to Gucci HQ **CHANEL**. I was having a rough day until I saw this. :hugs:
