Doggie Bag with a Twist

In my last post, I wrote about the doggie bag - a bag given to a customer in a restaurant or to a guest at a party for putting leftovers in to take home. The picture clue in the beagle teaser was a bright green bag. Boo Casanova was wondering whether Malaysian restaurants actually give out such cute doggie bags...Well, Boo, get ready for the answer:

"What does this sign have to do with the doggie bag?" you ask...

Well, here's the twist to the teaser. The bright green "doggie" bag is actually a poop scooper. It has a tissue container by the side and a clip handle. What you do is take a tissue and cover the poop. Then, using the clip handle, open the bag and scoop up the tissue with the poop. Isn't it nifty? See the picture below for a demonstration (minus the poop lest we offend some people!)

I decided to give mum a break from poop scoop duty and picked up after myself for once. After all, with this trendy "doggie" bag, I will probably become the neighbourhood canine fashionista!

Congratulations Lorenza for being the first to guess the bag correctly! You're the second recipient of the "Dog Series" Award. Feel free to post in on your blog, if you wish. Amber Mae also identified it accurately. Well done Amber!

P.S. I've also added Lorenza's and Cookie & Cinnamon's contribution to the take away/doggie bag in Mexico and Japan in the last post.

hahahahaha. that's what i guess! mom loves to share her food, if she ever get a doggie bag home, she'll definitely share it with me... ok, with me and dopes, that rascal.

so it's a poopie bag huh. mom bought the black plastic poopie bag from ikea for rm1.90 (i think or rm2.90) but when mom visited ikea last weekend, they no longer selling it. i guess mom has to use BARE HAND next time when they totally eliminate the use of plastic bag... hehehehehe

Hello there Kess!

What a clever beagle you are to clean up after yourself!

We wondering if Poopie bag comes in extra large. With all 10 of us, that small thing is simply not enough!

Great idea Kess but mum says she will never fit that into her pocket!
She is moaning about having two dog leads to manage so she would have to carry that in her mouth!
Sounds fine to us.
Great for the garden!

How neat!
It would be better for the hoomans' back if that doggie bag comes with a long handle!

Furry interesting!

The sad thing is that hoomans are too lazy to use it!

The park that is less than five minutes from me has a multitude of poo baggy stations yet there is way way WAY too much poo left on the path!


Sapphire said...

coolness! i have to admit i have not seen one of those!

sadly, sapphire usually eats half (if not all) of her poopie by the time i 'get' there... yucks.

Hi, Kess!
I knew it!
Thanks for the Award!
Kisses and hugs

What a nice pooper scooper. I thought it was doggie bag!

love & wags,


Wowsers, what a pawsom pretty doggie accessory.


Hi Kess,
We have those poop scoops here too but love the idea of having the courtesy litter bag stand. Some of the parks in Australia have them and bins to throw away the poop but nothing like that exists here. A lot of people still just leave the poop in the park which makes mum really mad!

Hi Kess!
That pooper scooper is cool :)

Thanks for signing my guest book.
