puppy potty

i am trying to find another mastiff/pitt puppy to replace calvin. i am still really sad, but he has been gone longer than he was here. also, there are not a lot of mastiffs to be had for less than hundreds of dollars.

in any case, we are FINALLY wrapping up the plumbing in the apartment in the basement. the only thing remaining is the toilet. i bought a special pump for the toilet, because it has to push its flushes UP to the drain. i am planning to also use the pump to push poop from the yard down the drain.

i have hot and cold running water in the gangway, and i am going to put a little 16" x 6' platform 1 foot off the ground. it will work sort of like a pool table. the top will be level to the ground (but a grille to let things pass through) and under that will be sloped to let waste run to the sewer.

we are bringing out a pipe from the sewer in the basement where the puppy potty will attach. there is already a down spout from the gutters tying in there, it won't be that hard to make it a Y with two openings.

calvin was just a little guy, but he could really mess up the yard in a few days. on top of that, i don't really have a yard, just a 3 feet wide x 40 ft long cement gangway. that can fill up with poop really quick.

ADDENDUM: i have been researching this, and i am not the first one to think of this. i think i have a good idea of what this should look like.
