HI again: the pinch a penny liners are a great idea too! Yes, I am in Naples and this is the first we have had a problem with severe Hurricanes. Most have passed us going up the west coast of Florida and then heading more west. We did have 2 a few years back, but the normal wind and rain. We have been here 23 years and evacuation surprised me. Guess I shouldn't have been surprised with what is going on all around the
country as to weather events. Its so crazy, Mother Nature is sure angry over something we are doing to her home I guess. The tips for my preparation are great and so I begin (in case). As they say in "OZ"
Oh my,.... sod...., and pools...., tarps and boxes.... Oh my, I'd better begin!!! Seriously, its been a delight to find out many ideas to help me and I so really appreciate it. I did pick up a nice piece of sod to start today, and so I will take the advice Karen and set it up outside to give him a start. Besides this is an adventure into the unknown for me...I think a productive one, as who knows if I will need to use it in any emergency...I
almost forgot: Reilly send all of you Sloppy kisses for helping.

I just use a large washable piddle pad . Maddie likes to walk around back and forth so she needs extra space . My floor never gets wet . I also make them for sale at my etsy shop. Maddie likes the 34x 36 size . It would be easy to travel with . Mine go both outdoor and indoor but are used to using them. If you have access to a washing machine during a disaster or maybe hand washing and hanging to dry it might work good.

Richell Paw Tray Mesh Training Tray is a large potty tray. Not as large as the UgDog but it's a good size. I have two of these and use the Equine Horse Pellets in them. They are not as deep as UgoDog or the Blyss but I've found you don't need a deep layer of pellets. When the dog pees on the pellets they expand and one layer works great. The way this potty snaps down, you have to make sure there are NO pellets along the edge of the tray. If you're looking for a larger tray you might check this tray out.

I have UgoDog and use it, too. It's very large and hard to hide. I have the Blyss and found it works in small areas. Patti is 12-14lbs and she's learned how to position herself on the trays. Occasionally she'll stand on the edge, with butt off the tray so I have a bathroom rug with a rubber back that sticks out about an inches on those occasions that might happen. This happens on the large one small trays.

Laughing...I was so disappointed to click on your link. I was expecting to see a picture of Patti standing on the edge and missing the tray!

LOL!!! Patti's motives are good but unfortunately, it happens more than I like. It even occasionally happens on the large UgoDog tray.

Clarification: Her body is on the tray, but her butt is sticking out over the edge. Sometimes she able to balance poop on the edge of the tray.

Great idea. I clicked on the Etsy site you provided, but alas, Sold Out! I think they looked wonderful and was thinking what nice xmas gifts they would make for pet owners. Will you be selling more? I will keep
checking the site if you are. Thanks for the suggestion, the pad looks like it will do a good job. Right now we are working on the fresh grass and tarp. He seems to be thinking about it. Just time. I am going to go out today and scoop us some grass he just peed on and incorporate it into the piece of sod we fixed up with the tarp. He keeps looking at it, and then back at me, so I am trying to encourage him, but he seem a bit bewildered by it all right now. I think if it is very nasty out, and he really has to use a potty, he will go on this. Let you all know. And please do let me know when you have more piddle pads back on Etsy.
