New Invention — The Loop For Poop [VIDEO]
It never fails. You see something someone has invented and it seems like the most basic thing in the world. You say to yourself, "Why didn't I think of that??" If you have dogs and find yourself cleaning up after them all the time, you're going to want to see what this woman has invented.
It's a bag dispenser that straps right to your dog's leash. I know...sounds pretty simple doesn't it? Those are the ones that turn out to be the most successful.
The inventor is 40 year old Chicago native Jennifer Blaese. Jennifer essentially was rescued as a baby after she was left at an inn just outside of Seoul, Korea, when she was four months old. Now she has rescued two of her own dogs and found that when she had to walk them in the city, she was constantly cleaning up after them. Often she ran out of bags.
"As prepared as I always thought I was, there would undoubtedly be a day that I’d have two bags in my pocket and then either Winston or Mabel would decide to poop again! I literally had to pick up the poop with my hands or find a discarded coffee cup or leaf. I couldn’t just leave it there!”
“There was a day, though, that it was snowing. There was no way I was going to be caught unprepared in that weather! So I put ten bags in my pocket. But when I went to pull one out, they all landed in the slushy snow. And it’s like over-dispensing toilet paper -- you can never put it back the way it was. That was the day that I decided I needed to come up with something better -- something that would dispense one bag at a time.”
So she invented The Loop for Poop. Yup. That's the real name.
