My wife insisted on a potty and I was thinking, "Ugg, really?" She would not take no for an answer and that made us have to step up to a more expensive pup model. I was frustrated but wanted her to be happy on the trips so I submitted. After one trip, I realized how wrong I was and I am more of a primitive camper type guy. You see, we have two BIG dogs so when you get up at night, even as a man, to relieve yourself, the dogs get all excited and chaos reins at the small hours. Massive German shepherd tails whack everything in reach as they wag furiously, 90+ pounders leap off whatever they were laying on with a resounding "Thump!" and shake the whole pup, kids wake up, and there goes the neighborhood. Now, we just sneak out of bed, tell the beasts to chill with soft words an a scratch of the ears, use the potty, slip back into bed, and all is right with the world.
