Designer Young-Long Choi has been beavering away at the answer to mucky pups and come up with the DogPot - the conveniently foldy pocket paper pooper scooper. Choi provides this enlightening quote on his design:
"When we clean the dog or other pet’s excrement, If picking and throwaway are acted at a time, is it more prompt or convenient? For this aim, this product is applied a leverage. Only with a little effort, it can pick a target exactly, and pick once, it have the target slip through its package. This product is made by paper, so it is very useful in outside for its light and portable shape. Most of all, structure of dogpot have folding lines. So it will be flat when you have it in your pocket at outdoor."
However, if that's not enlightening enough for you, you could always try the Lighted Pooper Scooper.
3. SNIF Tag
"If you ever longed for a way to monitor your dog's social life, map out his buddy network, and sense who its true friends are, you might have been waiting for SNIF"

Transmitting information wirelessly via an accelerometer to SNIF Base, you can find out all your dogs antics from ball-licking to arse-sniffing and poo-munching shenanigans.
No, not a statement on my part, just the name of this geek-inspired dog toy. If you can't get your paws on an iPhone, get your pup's paws on an iBone. Comes complete with squeaker "for extra enjoyment" at only $11.95.
5. Cat DVD

And now for my bonus entry (oo-er)...
Make sure your pussy's feline sublime this Christmas with a DIY Cathouse. Full instructions can be found here as to the construction of your own contemporary cathouse. Olive's owner had this to say on the subject:
“I made this house for my cat, Olive. She enters through a door in the bottom side and then ascends a ramp, which boosts her to the upper level. The front wall is plexi-glass, the floor is 2.5 inch thick old sheepskin rug, and my wife made some small paintings that hang on the walls. There is also a big cardboard scratching porch. Cats love to scratch and relax on cardboard. The top is removable and the glass slides out for maintenance.”
Well there you have it, folks, all you need for a spot of heavy petting this Christmas.
