Did they or didn't they?

Over the kibbeh at lunch* today, MysteryMommy pointed out that I never revealed whether Pottyphobe and her husband got the used potty.

Pottyphobe and her husband did not--repeat, NOT--bring home a used potty. All your opinions were not only helpful, some of them were enlightening. I've now decided that when AB finishes with his potty, we're going to donate it to whomever wants it. Less plastic in landfills!

* Topics at lunch included work, potty training (wherein I got some really good tips that I can't wait to try out at home), stay-at-home parenting, frou-frou dogs, and "Kill Bill, Vols. I and II."

any talk relating to frou-frou dogs better not in any way be recognizable as comparable to my sweet wonderful small dogs. Not all small dogs are frou-frou, mine certainly are not.

Touchy? Can you tell? : )

So jealous of the blogger meetups!

Hate to break it to you, halloweenlover, but the breed of dog you favor? Frou-frou dogs. Which is not to say that your particular pup is frou-frou. All dogs have distinct, individual personalities. Your dog may be butcher than butch. Your dog may eat other dogs for lunch. But the breed? Frou-frou.

Liz is right. You don't dress up your dog like a ballerina, do you?

No no no, not frou frou!!! Haven't you seen the movie As Good As It Gets? The dog that gets thrown down the garbage shoot? TOTALLY CUTE, not frou frou.

Mine are pretty tough. They think they are big dogs. In fact, Tango, the older one once tried to defend me against a Great Dane!

But no, I don't dress them like ballerinas. I do dress them like Red Sox players though. Tango is Ramirez and Murray is Ortiz : )

You dress them as Sox? That is freakin' sweet.

Dressing up a dog in anything other than a coat and boots for winter time or a day-glo orange vest during hunting season is frou-frou.


Though red-socks outfits would be adorable. Still. Frou-frou.

Oh my! dogs in clothes? I tried to put actual serious doggie-hiking-boots on my mutt once. He kicked them off and said "Those are for frou-frou dogs!"

Yes, he speaks... but only to me. He also said "don't get the used potty"

Well, until they started winning last year. Then it became a game-time good luck thing. And then a celebratory thing. Now Tango wears his outfit when we visit nursing homes and the elderly folks LOVE IT.

Pottyphobe, my dog kicks off boots too and refuses to walk if I put them on again.

OK OK... I forgive you. I guess you can dress your dog up for Halloween.. as long as he refuses to walk in booties... at least he's got some "big-dog dignity". ;)

Halloween costumes are not frou-frou. Also, good luck winning outfits are not frou-frou. Also, entertaining the elderly is not frou-frou.

Kicking off the winter booties, definitely NOT frou-frou.

You have redeemed the coolness of your cute little sweetie dogs.
