Rita! I know exactly why she got dumped and I wonder if the dumpers did research to find a house with no carpet . . or just folks who never say no to an animal!
I’m not sure if it’s separation anxiety or if she’s just showing me what she can do when she doesn’t get her eway but no matter how many times I take her out, if I walk out of the house . . go get eggs, get something out of the car, meet the UPS guy . . I walk out and she has an “accident” in the house.
We can put her in the kitchen with the gate closed and a puppy pad and leave her from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and she has no accidents. I don’t think it’s accidents at all but more of an attitude!
If I come in the house and she’s sitting in Vince’s chair, which is as far away from me as she can get, and she has her back to me and won’t look at me, I know . . start looking for a puddle. We’ve taken all he rugs out except one and we really need it to keep the furniture from sliding around on the wood floor.
If we had carpet, she would be gone . . really! A dog peeing in the house is something I will never put up with but, without carpet, and in my old age, I’m being a little more lenient but she is about to get the best of me . . especially when it’s just a little puddle and I know it wasn’t like she couldn’t hold it, and she’s sitting there avoiding eye contact because she knows she’s done something wrong. Darn . . she is one hard headed little girl.
That reminds me . . Chad calls my sweet granddaughter “Addie, Addie, Attitude!” I told Nicole I think she’s a bit delayed with the Terrible Twos. She wasn’t too bad when she was 2 but she is one hard headed little girl. She definitely stands her ground and doesn’t back down . . but at least she doesn’t pee on the floor!
