The BEST Dog Poop Bags

How do you pick up your dogs poop? 

Many dog owners pick it up with a non-biodegradable plastic bag. They "recycle" (re-use) one of those plastic bags from the grocery store. They pick up the poop and throw it away. 

But then what happens? It gets sent off somewhere, to live on forever and ever and ever.
You may not think about it, but chances are if you have a dog you're creating excess waste, somewhere. There are approximately 78.2 million owned dogs in the United States. That's a lot of poop!

Paul Cannella, the owner of Chicago-based, created a solution. 

Cannella’s PoopBags are 100 percent  TOTALLY biodegradable dog waste bags  —
Made from corn starch and other renewable resources, PoopBags are shelf stable products that will degrade, after use, at the same rate as the core of an apple. 

"I used to always run out of bags for my dog, May. I started grabbing extra bags when I could: my Mom would save them for me, I always asked for double-bagging, etc. I started looking for sources on the web and discovered just how bad plastic bags were for the environment." says Paul. 

In 2003, there were very few resources for biodegradable bags — and it remains true today. While many claim to be biodegradable, only a couple actually meet the ASTM D6400 specification, which allows you to legally claim your product is biodegradable."

Yorkie Scam Involving San Francisco Airport SFO

Warning potential dog owners,  beware of a pet scam that that may
 be using the SFO name (San Francisco airport)  to entice its victims.

SFO Airport Duty Spokesman Doug Yakel reported this week of a  Yorkie scam that begins on websites offering to give away pets and offering air transport to connect a pet owner with the new pet. The scammer then requests that the consumer pay a portion of the costs, airfare or other costs such as those related to vaccines, crates or insurance necessary for travel. 

This request is sent in an e-mail from a false agency known 
as the "Health Care Department" at SFO.

SFO Airport officials are warning that no such department or e-mail
 account exists and that the airport is in no way connected to this scam.
