The bags my sister brought home this week are biodegradable. I was very excited by this news. No longer will my dog's excrement sit forever in garbage dumps (tee hee), but instead, they will be able to return to the earth as nature intended. Now we will be able to clean up after our
So excited was I that I chose to keep reading of all the things these bags would offer me. Sadly, I have still not found a bag which will clean up after the dogs itself, but technology is a grand thing, I am sure it is coming sometime. What these bags do agree to provide are a few simple things. They are: Easy! Convenient! No Contact! Scented!
Confused, and perhaps a little curious, I read that again. Yup. Scented. Many questions sprang to mind, but most urgently was "Of what scent?" I gingerly pulled out a bag and brought it to my nose. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I figured these bags were intended for poop pick up. Could they have stooped so low as to make them smell like it?
I inhaled and was met by the scent of... chocolate wafers.
WHAT??? Chocolate wafers. For one, why does this company think I want my dog's temporary feces holder to smell like food? For two, who do they think they are fooling? I doubt it's going to mask anything. Or even make it more palatable, really. This bag of feces smells akin to Grandma's baking. I do not understand.
All I know is the bags work for the purpose they are intended. They transport icky things to the garbage without making me touch it directly. I don't think the scent has really enhanced the experience all that much, but I'm keeping an open mind. Maybe next time, they will come out with strawberry.
