Ingenious: My Doggy Poo Cam!

I'm a bit of a gadget nut, and every once in a while I have to give myself a pat on the back when an idea works.

Our 9 week old chihuahua puppy (Cappuccino) needs to go to the loo every couple of hours. Here's the dilemma: at night it's a bit like playing Russian roulette. Do I wake up every few hours and just take him out hoping he'll poo? What if I get my timing off, step out of bed and stand in his crap (and then my toenails will grow like a trolls... that's a blog for another day).

Bring in... the poo cam!!!

Actually, I'm sure Axis didn't manufacture their camera (M1031) to alert a user when a puppy is about to dump a load on a newly laid wooden floor, but it works SO well.

It really is just a camera with a motion sensor on it. When it detects movement it lights up the area. I've also set it to emit an audible alarm as well. That way, the moment the pup gets out of bed to start his bedroom hunt to make a deposit, the camera wakes me up immediately. Like a swooping falcon I intercept Cappuccino before he hunkers down and does his deed. One quick trip the the garden and business is complete.

It saved me twice last night. Thanks technology!
