This blog’s chief canine officer gets a trot out up and down the street of a morning. Accompanied by a roll of sandwich bags to deal with the usual accompaniments of a canine morning trot up and down the street.
The roll of such I noted this morning. Or, rather, noted something about. A neatly squished mozzie – or some such – in that roll. Several layers deep, entirely dry, obviously been there some time. The assumption is that in some factory somewhere an innocent insect alighted on some moving surface of plastic which then got quickly rolled up and packed.
Mildly interesting might be stretching matters but I’ve not seen such before……
Similarly I once found a moth squashed in a toilet roll. A distinct improvement from the early days of the industrial revolution when you might find someone’s fingers in your bolt of cloth.
“of a morning”…..
I still remember the first time in The South that I was at the cake counter and asked for a flies’ cemetery. Reeled the assistant.
They are called that in The West too (assuming you mean the flat rectangular biscuit with the Italian name!)
What’s interesting is that you use sandwich bags rather than doggie poo bags. The sandwich bags we have got are more expensive and are transparent, which is not an advantage when picking up after your dog.
@BiW: the lad stammered that it was called a “fruit slice”. It tasted nearly as good. As Shakespeare would have expected.
We found a 1cm pupa in an M&S bagged salad* last month (luckily, before anyone bit into it). While I’m sure ‘every effort is made’ to prevent such occurrences, they’re bound to happen very occasionally. The manager at the store said she hadn’t come across one in 10 years of working for them.

I wonder what’s for lunch there.

We use nappy bags; cheaper than dog-poo bags, but still tough and non-transparent. They even do perfumed ones if you wish.
I’m thinking of getting a dog.
At the moment when I go to the park I’m just a bloke walking around with a stick and a bag of poo.
I’d imagine not unusual, but most peeps wouldn’t notice
At least you’re not claiming “Live maggots in tin of baked beans”
1. Brother visited: passenger seat belt inc metal tongue hanging out below door, he approaches car from passenger side on drive and had again when he stopped to buy paper
2. Bloke walks up to car, gets in & drives off: didn’t notice petrol flap – on drivers side – open
Maybe it’s a German dog and Tim has to inspect the poo and tell ze hund
Currant Square? Eccles Cake? Puff Pastry?
Luckily? If you’d emptied into bowl, added dressing and eaten you wouldn’t have known about the protein nugget
We take dogs to woods where they do as bears. In garden we chuck over hedge into trees
It’s fly food to support birds & spiders
Buy a lead. Chat-up line “Have you seen my dog?”
Public Service Announcement
Dog owners please don’t hang the bag up in a tree or on a fence, we really don’t have dog poo fairies who collect them. Rather than do that it’s ok to flick the dog shit off the path in to a hedge out of the way.
As someone who regularly goes out litter picking its bad enough picking up crisp packets and beer cans without having to dispose of dog dog shit bags. If you can’t do it yourself get rid of your dog.
Worse than that, if left hanging on a hedge or just chucked into a grazing field. Horses are attracted to the high cereal content in dog food, and eat the bags. It can kill them, both from the plastic blocking the gut and the bacteria in the shit.
