animal that is used as a fashion accessory. This
animal is treated less as a pet, than as merely another accessory to draw
to its owner/wearer.
These animals are usually carried around in a purse or bag, are often small
dogs, whom are usually seen
shaking and cowering in fear.
The accessapet is not limited
to dogs. Cats, birds, snakes, rodents, ferrets
(yes I KNOW that a ferret is a rodent, but feel that it justifies its own classification here) have
been known to be forced into this
role as well.
Paris Hilton carries
an accessapet to many social functions.Check
out that girl over there with another
one of those damn accessapets.
