Our 24-lb puggle (for scale: I am 5'6")
needs a soft-sided carrier and also to get stuffed into said carrier.

NB: We will not be taking her on airplanes any time soon. This will be for the bus/subway and extended car trips.
What's a good carrier for a 25-lb puggle?
Amazon is having a Pet Tuesday event tomorrow, so I intend to buy it there and then and get it shipped next-day (we need it for Friday.) The problem is that I cannot for the life of me figure out how big the actual carriers are, nor what would be a comfortable size for the dog. The same carrier will have reviews saying "too big!" and "too small!" for the same sized animal, and very few of these seem to be made for a dog >22lbs., which is confusing. One company's "large" is another's "medium" and we tried to compare in person at the pet store and we're running into the same issues. Right now all we have to go on is "Sherpa makes good ones" and that's about it.
How do you get a dog in a carrier?
While she doesn't mind tight spaces (she cuddled up REAL tight with people and hangs out in her kennel sometimes) we have yet to figure out how to get her into a carrier. We had a test run at the pet shop on Saturday and hoo-boy she was just not having it. What are some good tips to get her to at least not absolutely HATE her new carrier by Friday?
