Let’s get something straight. When you get a dog, you are supposed to take care of him/her the proper way yes? Okay, so part of this means, taking your dog out for daily walks. It’s a mutually beneficial and necessary activity. You get a peace of mind from your day. You both get your exercise. Not to mention, it’s a good bonding experience. As you walk, skip, or run, dogs stop to relieve themselves. That’s pretty much the same as women going to the bathroom to talk or men giving each other the nod as they stand over the urinal. Furthermore, by nature, dogs live in packs. Every pack has a leader. As the owner, you are the leader and walking your dog reinforces your role. So why would anyone be a bad leader and get their dog a Potty Patch?
The Potty Patch is the most absurd and offensive invention. Seriously. How is it even slightly justifiable to encourage your dog to pee in the house rather than take him outside to pee, run around, and smell the bitch down the street? Not only does it prevent a dog from being trained properly, but it goes against nature, limiting their role as animals. How are males supposed to mark their territory? How are females supposed to attract males? A little green patch is not a sufficient substitute for the outside world. It’s just not fair. A house should be a shelter, not a cage.
But here’s the kicker. When reading about the Potty Patch, I came across a blog of “dog lovers” who were interested in buying the Potty Patch. All of them reported never having received their Potty Patch, later discovering the whole thing is a scam. Potty Patch was never listed with the Better Business Bureau. People had to deal with credit card frauds, random charges, etc., as a result of their purchase. Yeah it sucks, and that’s a shame, but I hate to say it, it serves them right. Ahem, karma. That’s what you get when you limit your dog’s freedom and happiness. I hope they and you learned a valuable lesson – walk your dog.
For the record, just because I didn’t mention Porch Potty, doesn’t mean it’s okay. It is equally stupid.
What he is really thinking is, “You serious Clark? I give you unconditional love every day and all you give me is this lame patch of grass for me to pee on inside the house?”
