What is this, you ask?

There’s a little spoon inside.  Hint: I was given this at the veterinarian’s office.

I’m strangely happy about receiving this because it’s designed to contain …well, poo.
No more collecting samples in tin foil…baggies…margarine tubs.
Now I have just the right tool for the stool!

If you need to collect a stool sample from your dog before her next check up, maybe you can ask your vet for…one of these things (no idea what its called). It might just make a messy job a little easier.
