Dogs can be absolute pains. Not only do you need to pick up their poop after them, but sometimes they even like to eat it. Doesn’t matter if it’s their own or another animals’, if it looks tasty, they’ll munch it. My friend actually had to get some stool eating deterrent for dogs to ensure their pup stopped eating it. What a gross habit! I guess sometimes you have to accept that if you’re getting a dog, you have to just deal with these things. Like pooper scooping. You just have to clean it up, it comes with the package. Pardon the pun! I know I just wrote (too much) about picking up dog poop, but something else came up that I felt like I needed to add.

My girlfriend got me a thing that you put on the end of the leash for poop bags. Like a toilet paper dispenser, but for picking up dog crap.

Anyway, the bags it came with are thin. Like, really thin. So thin that I imagine it would float away if you let one go on a completely windless day.

Being so thin, when picking up fresh dog crap, I can totally feel the temperature and texture of the specimen more than I could with my old bags, as if the bag is not even there.

The things we do for the dogs we love right?

I mean although it’s gross I would do anything for this dog. I want to make sure that when my dog grows old that they are happy. I’m not sure how I’ll cope if something happens to him. Imagine if my dog got something like pancreatitis… I’m not sure how I would cope. Although I did read up that CBD might be able to help with that (I think I looked at this site here:

Anyway, what’s the point in worrying about something that hasn’t happened. At the moment my dog is happy, healthy, and poops all the time.

Meaning that it’s my job to pick it up.

And this is not something I want to deal with when trying to enjoy a nice walk in some fresh air. I totally wasn’t expecting it the first time I went to clear up after my dog so I let out an audible groan which I’m sure would have looked/sounded bizarre to the people around me…

So, I need to either find better bags that don’t make me want to heave every time I go to clear up after my dog or just put up with it.

I know a dog poo bin in garden is the economical way to get rid of it but I can hardly take it with me when I go for walks! I’m definitely looking into getting one for my garden but I’m still not sure how to deal with my latest issue.

Also, I’m not sure whether to tell my girlfriend because she got me the bags as a thoughtful gift but I’m sure she’ll be able to find the gross funny side if I do tell her. I wish she had got me some thicker, earth friendly poop bags instead!

Just thought I’d share that with you guys.

Oh, and yes. Yes, that is the way I just announced that I got a girlfriend.

  1. I'm sure she's gonna love making her debut in a post about steamy shit. lol

    Congrats on the girlfriend but I'm so sorry about the crap barrier not being sufficient.

    Can you empty the “bag dispenser” and stuff in sufficiently thick bags?

  2. I have these bags. While convenient, not only are they thin and you can feel everything, they also don't mind ripping…which is how I covered myself in poop that one day! They do have thicker ones that can go in those dispensers, but they are more expensive.

    And you forgot to tell us which of your four factoids wasn't true. I need to know!

    I was wondering when you were going to tell everyone about the girly 🙂

  3. A girlfriend who brings your four footed pal gifts always gets good girlfriend points – even if the bags are thin.

    My parents used to use the newspaper bags – they tell me you have to be careful now though – the bags are biodegradable and dog shit seems to speed up the degrading process.

  4. Yay girlfriend! Besides being thoughtful enough to bring you poopy bags, what else should we know about her? Do we need to be protective and tell her that if she hurts one of my favorite bloggers she'll get the rusty spoon treatment?

  5. Well, congratulations. I've been waiting for you to realize that, although I'm old and decrepit, I'm the right woman for you, but if you're not going to figure it out, then it's your loss.


  6. Congratulations on having a lovely person to present you with gifts of thin crap bags! =D

    (When I saw the title of this I was already prepared to comment with “Okay YoungMB, one post about shit is okay, but two in a row is outright” but since it was your own way of making a big announcement, I shall forgive it. 😉 )

  7. Congratulations on having someone to split the duty of picking up doody with!

    Also, you're right about those bags being so thin you can actually feel the heat and contents. So… why can't they make condoms the same way?
