Herd Endorsed Product

We have always been reluctant to accept advertising on our web site, so we turn down potential advertisers every week.  If and when we ever decide to accept advertising, it will be because we believe in the product, not because it provides us the best financial reward.  Besides, we have always done the website because it is fun – not for financial gain.  But without any financial gain, we have decided to put our seal of approval on this product that we tried Sunday.

You see, many of you noticed the object in our human’s hand in a picture posted yesterday.  Yes, that bag contained what you thought:

That tell-tale blue bag.

Our hu-dad went out to purchase a product Sunday to deal with this.  No, not because he is embarrassed to be carrying around a bag of poo.  For those of you who follow us on Facebook, you know he wears camouflage socks with sandals and shorts, so a bag of poo is the least of his fashion faux pas (or is that, poo pas?).  No, he wants his hands free so that he can take more pictures of us.  Admirable goal.  So now we introduce our brand new product:

Thundering Herd Portable Poo Poo Pack

We found ours for only $8.99 at Wal-Mart, and tested it just this afternoon.  Uh – yes, we still use the blue bags, but the blue bags go inside the Portable Poo Poo Pack for easier carrying.  This is particular important when 8 bags get filled (hey, some of us are double contributors).

Operators are standing by.  Call now.

    Excellent product recommendation! And so much more convenient than a wheelbarrow!

    Necessity truly is the mother of invention! When the occasion arises, we’re deft enough to juggle the results of two doubles, but would be at a total loss to encounter the extraordinarily rare, dreaded, but definitely possible, double triple.

    Huh this is interesting. Mom’s all about being handsfree too but a poop backpack? Does it have a stay fresh liner? I guess you do what you gotta do for blogging

    Great thinking. We have a bag for poo as well but we never seem to remember to take it with us.

    I’d never thought about the poo problem of having six big dogs! That must be a heavy backpack by the end of a hike 🙂

  7. Honey the Great Dane on September 27, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    Gosh, I’d imagine you’d need a knapsck if the whole Herd all decide to poo at once!! 😉

    Slobbers,

    Ingenious! How does that work, fashionwise, with the socks and sandals?

  10. Huffle Mawson on September 27, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    Socks with sandals? Hu-dad, my mum is in despair.

  11. Clive on September 27, 2010 at 6:07 pm

    Yes indeed, we say no to those advertisers as well!

    That’s a lot of poo per walk!

    take care

    I just bought a package of green poo bags on sale. After using them a couple times, I thought I was being reckless, since I kept managing to get poo on my hands–but now I see that ALL of the bags have a small rip in them. Hope your backpack is washable, in case you get a roll like mine!

  14. Ryker on September 27, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    Matt has the right idea, maybe you could invent poo bag hand warmers for winter!

  15. Stella on September 27, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    My Mom hates carrying that bag around and Now she has threatened me with a doggy back pack where I can carry my own poo around. I am too finicky to even think of something like that. Whats that you say, Mom? Poo on one side of the back pack and treatz on the other? That might be something to think about!

    In the meantime, fill up that bag, Herd!

    Kisses,
    Stella

  16. brooke & Darwin on September 27, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    Hmm. The thought of carrying stinky poo in a backpack disturbs me. What if somehow the bag popped? ewwww.
    Ive tried to tie the bad to Darwin (which she wasnt a huge fan of) or tying the bag to the leash…

  17. Shawnee the Shepherd on September 27, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    I like how it has the three smaller pawkets on the front fur smaller size poos. Coz you knows, sometimes the dubbull contribushuns are not as big the sekond time around.

  18. Sonic on September 27, 2010 at 9:57 am

    You know, I’m actually surprised at the size of the blue poo bag. I thought you big sibes would poop something epic! But it’s almost the same size as mine…

  19. the_dogfather on September 27, 2010 at 9:40 am

    Looks like a good idea…..so which of you will be carrying it? Lol

  20. Mogley G. Retriever on September 27, 2010 at 9:05 am

    You are on the right track. Only one more product you will need to add. For long walks and camping trips you can get wheels for your back pack.

  21. Matt on September 27, 2010 at 8:26 am

    That’s great! and in the winter the “warmth” in the pack will keep your back warm too. It’s a win, win for all involved. Mr. Taleteller.

  22. Houndstooth on September 27, 2010 at 8:19 am

    Oh God! I was waiting for the big reveal of this amazing product, and then I got to the punch line! If you need a backpack for it all, I feel sorry for you! The funniest part is that hubby and I just had a conversation about this particular issue over the weekend. Off to wipe away my tears of mirth!

  23. Pamela on September 27, 2010 at 7:41 am

    You’re lucky the hu-dad through of a backpack. I’ve heard of some folks tying poop bags to the pup who filled them. That would definitely not be fashionable!

  24. Sam on September 27, 2010 at 5:52 am

    Well, we might have to try that. I’ve never liked carrying the poo bags. If we are in the neighborhood, I leave them on the curb and come back after the walk with the car. I know we’ve gone to certain places where one or the other is stuck holding the bag!

    Sam

  25. Koda on September 27, 2010 at 4:13 am

    I think Ma will agree with you there, although we did find some black poopoo bags which include a small minor piece of anonymousnous for the lovely Ma.

    I wonder if she too will follow your smart dad and get a poopoo pack, altho my yeild is much smaller than the Herds…

  26. Wild Dingo on September 27, 2010 at 3:35 am

    Well, if the HERD endorses it…

  27. Dennis the Vizsla on September 27, 2010 at 1:40 am

    You can never have too much poo storage.
