What's more, one of Astrid's favorite things to do on walks is, well, evacuate her system. It's gotta be done, as they say. What's more, since it's not polite to leave such presents just lying around in neighbors' yards, and since Astrid lacks opposable thumbs, this human serves as the cleanup crew.
We try to be as green as we can here at our home. In trying to maintain this way of life, we attempted to reuse plastic grocery bags to transport Astrid's intestinal gifts back to our trashcan. Let's be honest, though. It would seem that our local stores prefer to test out the strength of their plastic bags using something along the lines of a katana. And let's just say that the bags always fail this test, and therefore also fail to hold up to Astrid's recycled food.
So, we resorted to bags specifically designed for picking up pup poo. We've tried multiple different kinds, some we've liked, and some not so much. Given that we were running low on our most recent stash of bags, ones which were sometimes just a tad too small and thin to fit the intestinal contents of a 65-lb dog, it was decided that Astrid's review for this month's Chewy.com Blogger Outreach Program would be of Frisco™ Dog Waste Bags.
This product looked promising from the get-go. As the box says, this particular selection comes with a whopping 900 bags! There are 15 bags per roll, which means this box is stuffed with 60 rolls of bags. What's more, this particular deal also comes with 2 bag dispensers.
Again, Astrid is a 65-lb dog, and her deposits show it. So, the size of the bag is very important. The product description says these bags are 13" tall x 9" wide, which sounded pretty decent. Still, though, I had to pull one out as soon as the box arrived to see for myself. Did it pass the size test?
It sure did! And after a few field tests, it was determined that these bags are indeed just the right size for grabbing up poo and tying it up afterwards. What's more, the plastic of the Frisco bags are on the thick side, especially when compared to some of the bags I've previously used. And trust me, this is a good thing!
You can even choose between scented or unscented bags from Frisco™. I chose the unscented, only because, personally, my nose has always been a bit put off by the warped scent of any fragrance trying to mask puppy sewage. I'm probably just weird like that, though, so the scented version of these may very well be great at their job!
What it comes down to is that the Frisco™ Dog Waste Bags seem just right for, well, the job at hand. And this particular pack seems like quite a deal, if you ask us. On Chewy.com, it's currently a mere $14.97 for these 900 bags and 2 dispensers. Although I won't name any names, I've spent at least that much on a small fraction of 900 bags at other locales. So, be sure to check out this deal if you're in need of a hand at picking up some puppy poo.
Now, on with the walk!
Wishing all of our furiends a very happy Tuesday!

***Our Tip of the Day:
Although there has for quite some time been debates regarding the use of dog or even cat feces as fertilizer, the truth of the matter is that there are a number of potential diseases and other health concerns related to this practice. Retinal disease in children, for example, was found to be a result of the use of dog feces as fertilizer in one particular study. For this reason, among many others (including good manners!), please always be sure to pick up after your pup, and even after your outdoor kitty, if possible.
