Dog Dung Vacuum

So I've always thought of puppy poop duty as exercise.  I don't own a gym membership - so collecting toys,  walking the dog, gathering shredded paper products, picking up poop -- it is all about keeping in shape.  Right?
To the right is a pooper vacuum.   Has anyone used one of these?  I suppose if you have a whole pack it would be pretty nifty - but then I can't see the size of the bag as functional.

This device vacuums pet waste into a disposable bag, eliminating the need to bend over and scoop excrement by hand. A 30,000-rpm motor quickly suctions dog waste from grass, concrete, or even snow-covered ground into a plastic bag that removes for ease of disposal. The bag wraps around the vacuum's intake to prevent waste from touching any part of the device. About the size of a leaf blower, the cordless vacuum transports easily around a yard and stores unobtrusively. Provides up to 50 cleanups after a 12-hour charge via the included AC adapter. Includes 25 3-lb.-capacity bags. 34" H x 6 1/2" W x 13" D. (4 1/4 lbs.)The Dog Dung Vacuum comes with The Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee at no additional charge. If this product ever disappoints you, for any reason, you may return it for exchange, credit, or refund.

Randy forwarded this to me.  Here is his comment: "There is just something about this concept that grosses me out.  I know picking up with ye olde poope bag is not elegant, but I just picture a huge "schloooooooock, sluuuurp" sound at this machine functions---uggggggg!!! " 

Randall -- nothing related to your two handsome dogs, Billy and Momo,  could possibly be "ugggggg!"


  1. But what if I caught Billy's ear and sucked out his brain??? Hmmmmm, on the other hand he could not get much more "anti-brilliant."

  2. Harsh! I know him by his rock name, "Billy Brilliant Superstar!"

  3. Man, I've been lax in my blog viewing duties. I almost missed this entry. Half of me wishes I had. The other half wishes I'd come up with the idea to milk thousands of dollars from wealthy,poop paranoid pet owners.
