Reader Kate sent me this picture from Prague, and I’m grateful to her:
She tells me the bag is “coated paper with a cardboard scoop inside.” You know what a grim struggle it’d be to wrangle poop into a paper bag with a cardboard scoop — those poor Czechs must wish it were as easy (and flushable) as the picture suggests.
Kate doesn’t speak or read Czech, and neither do I.

Here’s Kate’s pup Lambert, by the way — a Poodle mix who’s “been on about 7 domestic round-trip flights and countless road trips around So Cal and Nevada. He is 10.5 pounds and uses a Sleepypod Air.” This picture shows him in his Air carrier:
