Flush Puppies

Have you guys heard of this? Flushable doggie waste bags that are water-soluble and break down in about ten minutes (and are also 100% biodegradable if thrown in the trash). The company's site (e3living.com) says that "in a city of 100,000 people or 43 square miles, dogs can generate about two and a half tons of feces per day. That's almost two million pounds a year."

Oh boy that's a lot of poop bags.

What do you guys do with your doggie doo?

In our house, we keep a jar for plastic bags by the kitchen sink (mainly produce bags, although occasionally we have newspaper sleeves) that get used for the dogs.

Has anyone used the in-ground disposal system like the Doggie Dooley (at Petco), composting, or fermenting (see bokashicycle.com)?

Crazy that you just posted this... I've actually been using Flush Puppies for a few months now and I love them. Sometimes i flush, sometimes i dont. It's sure a hell of a lot better than plastic bags, either way!
