Moonbeam isn't all that interested in traditional potty going yet, though she does play with the frog potty. One day I found her in bed snuggling with a part of it. The children tried to help her get the idea by squatting over her potty chair, making some sound effects, and leaving behind a deposit of fake dog poop. Unimpressed, she tosses the plastic poop aside and continues to play on her frog.
I was quite disappointed. Partly because she didn't seem the least bit interested in the real purpose for her potty. Partly, because I am quite proud of my realistic fake poop, and she was yet another unimpressed party. I bought it while I was working a contract job out of town. When I returned home, I left it on the children's toilet seat in an attempt to disturb them. They weren't impressed. I also tried it in The Archers Bathroom. He didn't buy it. I tried it again a few years later when my friend Mist came over. Her dog was on the floor in the dining room and I set it next to him when she was in the bathroom. She didn't but it either. Gosh, people just don't appreciate my sense of humor ;-) My remote control fart machine went over a lot better, but that's a story for another day.
