Don’t ask me why, but when I pick up my dog’s poop, I like to do it with style. I tend to go for cute and colorful bags, decorated with hearts, and stars and cute little faces. Not that it suddenly turns the stuff into gold nuggets or anything, but it does make me feel as whimsical as something like that can. Kind of like a poop—scoopin’ Mary Poppins. There are poop bags out there for all kinds of people, and what better gift to give the people you love than a clean and stylish hand.
1.For the Waggish
These designers from the Netherlands have designed doggy bags that not only feature jocular phrases such as “Shit Happens”, “Doggy Style”, and “Scratch and Sniff”, but the bag design itself is a triumph of practicality. The foldable handles first function to help you scoop, then fold up and close to create a secure handle to allow you to transport the poop to the nearest receptacle. Kind of like a Happy Meal.
2. For the Hipster
Along with glasses, beards and irony (and tattoos, and Doc Martens, and ….), hipsters have also appropriated argyle, much to the disgust of golfers and the Scottish. Available in a range colors, these bags will force hipsters to blatantly display their bag full of crap. Now THAT’s ironic.
3. For the Just-Dumped-and-Still-Bitter Friend
These customizable baggies are intended to display your company logo, which, unless you are being really honest about your product does not strike me as the best marketing idea. Instead, customize them with a photo of your friends ex, or your ex, or anybody else you are disgruntled with and get your own smear campaign going.
4. For the Geek
Okay, so these aren’t technically bags BUT, these awesome Star Trek Original Series Communicator doggie doo bag dispensers are … well, they’re awesome. In fact, if you don’t know what you’re going to get me for Christmas yet, one of these babies would do nicely. Thank you, Entertainment Earth.
