Yes even our darling Morkies poop, so we need poop bags if we’ve taught our Morkie to go outside.
Lots of us scrounge around for a used grocery bag, but they’re getting rarer these days, not to mention thinner! Plus they don’t degrade in a landfill like the best dog poop bags.
What makes for a good dog poop bag, and are some brands better than others?
What makes for a great poop bag?
- It’s gotta be sturdy enough, durable and reliable.
- The poop bag should be fast and easy to dispense.
- No pinholes that grow into unfortunate tears.
- The stock should be reasonably new since biodegradable stuff doesn’t last forever on store shelves
- And of course, there’s no point spending more than necessary.
Biodegradable, compostable or flushable?
Poop bags are available with features like:
- special colors and designs
- a free scoop
- in a mitten shape to fit your hand
- with dispensers that clip on a leash or your belt
- bags that can be safely flushed
Yikes! Is it just me or is this the most ridiculous idea ever? A torturous looking device is clipped on the dog’s tail, holding a bag tight to his rectum. When the dog poops, the bag collects the results. The owner pops the bag off with another special device, seals it and puts a new one on.

Yes, there are STILL some people who DON'T pick up
Hard to believe in this age of doorbell cameras, and surveillance on every corner, but there are some people who prefer to poop and pretend (it never happened) instead of poop and scoop.
The problem is, even a tiny dog like a Morkie can generate plenty of noxious germs, bacteria, and pathogens including E.coli and salmonella.
It’s not like cow fertilizer that can be aged a bit then put to good use in a veggie garden. Dog waste, made up of so much protein, is so strong it can actually burn your grass, not make it grow.
And then there are those parasites. Your Morkie doesn’t necessarily have worms, but if he doesn’t, they don’t just die because they’re now living on the grass or sidewalk. They can actually live in the soil for years, passing along to other animals and to people.
