Crossing the Rubicon….

Exhibit ‘A’

Yes, it’s happened.  I’m ashamed to admit it, but when it comes to the Beauman and Miss Thing, I have crossed the Rubicon.

What’s that you say?  You want proof?  Ok, here it is.  I breezed through HomeGoods the other day to pick up a few supplies–candles, fancy hand soap, some seasonal Tchotchke, you know the drill.  And then I saw them–*designer poop bags*!  Yes, that’s right, a stylish plastic receptacle for pickin’ up poop (for those who weren’t aware, polka dots are in!)  Of course I had to have them.

Believe you me, the title of “fashionista” is not bestowed on just anyone…. 😉

  1. Ok I have a confession. When I first saw the pic and then the purpose, my thought was Oh I want those! Oh dear. I, too, have fallen prey to pretty poop. 😉

  2. As much as everyone around me has advocated for a dog (begging, pleading, posting pictures of bull dogs to my facebook) I can still, even after seeing the scented polka dotted poop bags, say “No”. After four kids I’ve cleaned enough poop to last a life time. Now if they breed a non -shedding, non-pooping dog I’ve even buy it a sweater!

    I thank the “canine bodily function” Gods every day when my dogs use the woods like nature intended! I have not had to pick up poop in years! Polka-dotted bags or not!

    Now I’m embarrassed by my recycled newspaper bags. I just can’t let Sammie see your blog. She’ll feel deprived.

    But very cute.

    I prefer to think of this as ‘nothing but the best for my babies’ – a sentiment which is completely reasonable given their adorableness. Besides, Lola may be a fashionista and Beau the sensibilities to appreciate the finer things in life – but they are hardly superficial…

    • I like the way you think. Lola Bug was delighted and immediately insisted on taking a spin through the neighborhood to show off her latest accessory, while Beau grudgingly admitted that the polka dots could be construed as masculine, maybe even metrosexual… 😉
