Poo bags and the unintended fashion accessory

If you are like me then almost every item of clothing that you put on will contain at least one dog poo bag.

Yesterday, whilst trying to be prepared for Norwegian National Day on Wednesday, I rummaged through my closet and found my suit.

After brushing off the usual dog hair, I checked the pockets to find a poo bag both in the jacket and two poo bags in my suit trousers.

Quite often when I am paying for things in shops I will take out my wallet only for some poo bags to fall onto the counter.

Or I find my running tights in preparation for a jog to discover that the extremely small key pocket is filled with a scrumpled up poo bag.

Last Summer whilst bathing in the Danish sea with my son i thought i had better check my boardshort pockets whilst wading out through the shallow waves. Low and behold there were two bags which needed to be returned to the beach pre-swimming.

Like it or not the poo bag is the latest fashion accessory for the dog owner.

On the flipside we have all been there when your dog is going to the toilet in someone’s garden or on a path and you have run out.

That panicked feeling when you are either searching for a stick or maybe another dog owner to try and charm them into giving you one of their precious pouches.

In extreme cases I have also been known to use a supermarket bag or a freezer bag to dispose of the offending delivery.

Clearly the makers of poo bags have realized the fashion aspect and they now come in a variety of colours, textures and materials.

Maybe you are a fan of the bio disposable. Maybe you want the statement of the brash bright pink bags. I have even seen leopard spot poo bags over the years, catering for the influencers and more fashion aware amongst us.

Hopefully you will be celebrating Norwegian National Day with your dog, so remember to colour coordinate your poo bag with your outfit to impress your friends.
