Wearable Dog Toilet — Episode 2: In which we learn its proper name is 'Super Catcher' (We have video)
Yesterday afternoon via reader Jeannine I received a link to the jawdropping video above.
Courtesy of Maximillian Hill and unbiasedbias came this link to the website of the Chinese company which manufactures the "Super Catcher" — not only in English (as opposed to yesterday's Czech iteration) but also offering what Maximillian termed a "bonus video!"
The photos above and below will show you perhaps more than you ever wanted to know about how this device works.
"Super Catcher contains 1 collar, 1 leash, 1 harness, 1 dog backpack,
1 droppings device, 1 spare fixing feet, and 1 box of droppings pouch (20 pies [sic])."
Very detailed instructions here.
About the company:
Fellowlike Pet Product Co., Ltd.
The goal of building the Fellowlike Pet Product Co., Ltd. is to study and develop the "convenient" and "practical" new products; sharing them with pet hosts located all over the world to enjoy the plentiful fun from pets.
Tian-Szu Tseng, the company founder, loves to feed pets ever since he is a kid; he has been fascinated to Labrador retriever since 1993, and thus raising only Labrador retrievers only till now. At present, his home has three Labrador retrievers colored in chocolate, black and cream-yellow. Tseng uses the combination of himself and his three Labrador retrievers to picture the company's logo; the image color is also basing on chocolate, black and cream-yellow as telling customers the story of how the company is built.
Raising pets can release modern people's tense mood and accompany them through happy or lonely time together. Tseng thinks that the relation between human beings and dogs should be like brothers and sisters, accompanying each other to grow up; and that is why the company's name and trademark is the "Fellowlike."
The "Super Catcher" is the first product the company has launched to market. We anticipate that all dog hosts can get a dog-shit-free living environment from this product, and all people who feeding or not feeding dogs, and dogs, can live harmonically together in our society.
If a picture is worth 1,000 ... words, how many does the video leading this post subsume?

Seeingeye obviously doesn't have a dog. When they "go", they strike a kangaroo pose. The contraption would be in the right spot when the poor dog wearing it goes into position.
It's still ridiculous, but not for your reason.

Let's pretend not to notice that the dog's anus appears to be higher then the placement of this ridiculous product.

Just imagine if the dog has gas. Now you have dog Fart-balloons floating gently in the morning breeze.

That would have to be the most moronic, cretinous and pointless invention known to man.

The pick up bags I have for Baxter are 100% biodegradable (except in California, according to the label, so I shall never go to California, where the bags will curiously not decompose). They are small...much less material than the contraption above. So, the Fellow Like actually IS worse than a pick up bag in that it requires more resources to use.

No worse than carrying a plastic bag for your dog poop.
I mean, because nothing EVER poops in the wild.

Ok pet lovers
Go over here and get your own talking dog. Or cat. Or pet iguana or armadillo.
Then send the message to Joe!

right, because what we need is more little packets of perfectly preserved poop in our landfills. ergh.

How come when a person is treated like a dog thats a bad thing. Maybe it used to be that way but this is too much fun!
All of us dog owners (owners?) absolutely love their dogs. And rightfully so. They are companions, have personalities and no matter how ugly they, or their owner is, are a treat.
These guys treat them like dogs in the human sense.
Unlike Jannine's dog, mine waits until I'm mowing the lawn and deliberately dumps a huge one directly in front of me in the tall grass so I have to mince it up an toss it across the lawn with the mower.
Do you think he's trying to tell me something?

Next -- codpieces for dogs!
In this quest for a dog-shit-free living environment, maybe the Fellowlike thing to do would be to stick a little nylon box on the dog host's back, preferably high up and as near to the nose as possible, and pack it with all the little sacks of dog droppings it can hold, insuring plentiful fun for dogs, and much living harmonically.
Somewhat analogous in (human) humiliation factor, there's David Sedaris on the "Stadium Pal":

Outfrigginragous! You have to handle the waste just as much if not more! I feel so bad for that dog. Can you imagine how it must feel to have something obstructing your turds on their way out? How did you find this Joe? lol

I was just thinking about the 'parts' factor of this accordion thingy. Seems like a whole lot of elements involved (6 sans the accordion if I'm to guide myself from the pictures above) just for some poop no? If I had a dog, I'd think this was too troublesome. Reminds me of my vacuum cleaner and why I never want to use it.

My little golden retriever is so bashful about his poops that I sometimes have to go into bushes to pick up after him. I can't imagine how he'd do if he had to wear this thing and carry his poop around on his back after going potty!
