    Default Actress Quvenzhane Wallis has helped doggy bag sales explode

    'SOUTHERN WILD' 9-YEAR-OLD
    DOGGY BAG
    Earns Mega-Cash

    EXCLUSIVE

    Add "business mogul" to her resume -- TMZ has learned, 9-year-old Best Actress nominee Quvenzhane Wallis was personally responsible for an EXPLOSION in the doggy bag market this AM ... after rocking her puppy purse on the red carpet.

    A rep for Poochie & Co. tells TMZ, the stuffed Yorkie purse was specifically designed for Wallis -- the youngest ever Best Actress nominee for her role in "Beasts of the Southern Wild" -- and sales skyrocketed this morning after Wallis debuted the bag on the red carpet last night.

    We're told Wallis has been wearing the company's puppy purses to various media events since January -- resulting in a steady double-digit growth for the company -- but this morning, the company saw an exponential upsurge in sales numbers.



    The rep tells us, the Poochie & Co. office has been flooded with calls and emails since this morning ... even from outside the U.S. ... and the company can barely keep up with demand.

    As for why they chose to give her a Yorkie for the Academy Awards -- the rep says it's because one of Wallis' dogs is a Yorkie ... so it just made sense.

    Wallis also owns a German Shepherd, but the rep said German Shepherds aren't "cute for girls."

    WE COMPLETELY DISAGREE. As proof, here's a cute picture of a German Shepherd puppy. Suck it, haters.

    I said on her fashion thread that she should have her own line of animal purses. Bet she will now.

    I'm all in favor of young girl/tweenaged fashions that encourages them to be more kidlike and less like little Kardashians

    Shit, I want to be more kid-like and own that curly poodle puppy purse, and maybe the bulldog, too. Okay, the terrier in pink can come live in my house, as well.

    Why aren't my brothers making me more nieces??? I can't be sending these to all my rough neck nephews.

    Those puppy purses are a-damn-dorable. If I was 9, I'd rock the hell out of one. Actually, I probably would now, but they're probably ridiculously overpriced as of this morning.

    I already have a couple of cat backpacks (including one that is Pilchard from Bob the Builder) and a little cat shaped handbag. Age be damned, I'm going to haul my shit around in what what I like!
