“Doggie Patch”

I have a MAJOR problem with this. Have you seen the commercials for it? I don’t have a problem with the product itself, which is gross because you still have to clean up the mess, but the fact that it’s AKC approved. Just another reason for me not to like the AKC.

2 years ago a “friend” of mine was living here and I was helping her with her mother’s dogs that we saved. It’s a long story and I’ve probably mentioned it before. But anyways, she was a dog breeder when she lived in Oregon and knew all about breeding dogs and what to do and what not to do. She’s the one that told me that unless she had people lined up to buy the dogs that she was going to breed she didn’t breed. These were dogs that were not pets but were kept in kennels for most of the time, not ones that got to sit on the couch with her. These were money machines in my opinion. But back to the AKC thing,she was a member of the AKC and

that didn’t really impress me.

I can see how people that use the “Doggie Patch” think they are doing a great job because now they aren’t wasting puppy pads or having to clean up after their dogs or puppies but when I look at it again it’s such a waste. You still have to empty the container every time your dog goes to the bathroom so that means what? You have to walk from one end of the room to the other, carrying this tray full of puppy pee and where do you pour it out at? The sink, which has dirty dishes in it? The garbage so now when you take the garbage out it has pee in it as well? Or you have it in the bathroom and you either pour it out in the sink where you brush your teeth, down the drain with your pee, or in the bathtub. Gross in so many ways.
