Making Puppy Pooping Easy

Maybe it's because nobody walks in LA. In New York, people walk their dogs and watch them squat, nonchalantly scooping their pooches' poop when necessary. It took an Angeleno to invent Pet a Potty, the rolling indoor/outdoor grass box that your pup can squat in to do his business. Advertised as a "solution for those walks at inopportune times," handily equipped with a trap pan for liquids, available in artificial or real turf and carrying a price tag of upwards of $200, the Pet a Potty is trying to be far more sexy than a litter box for dogs. Although the company is proud of Sharon Osbourne saying "I think this is absolutely amazing," we think a stronger tag line might come from the musical Fame: "I want to go crazy / like the dogs in the yard." Or maybe someone should just let the dogs out.
