That is until she hears the vet coming. The dreaded Footsteps from the Bad Door.Then she all, "I'll be under the bench. Let me know when it's time to go."
So, my lovely little dog has a new hobby.
She pees in her sleep.
Yes, I just said that. Five year-old dog. Wetting the bed. Her bed is MY bed. Very uncool. And I'm not talking about actually getting up and peeing. I'm talking about literally peeing where she is laying. WTF? She has done it twice in the last 2 weeks. Vet suspects spay incontinence. Which, I hear, I pretty successfully treated with meds. But, before we start meds, we have to rule out infection. They couldn't get anything out of her yesterday "manually."
I'm not sure what that means, but I picture elbows being involved.
We were also unsuccessful with the capture method. Shouldn't vets have that fancy cup on a stick thing? Mine doesn't. Kate will not stay put when you come at her with a bowl. She started to squat like 500 times and just stands and moves away when you come at her. Looking very offended, I might add. Hovering human with water dish not a part of her Urination SOP.
So, today she is being tortured with No Potty, until I can run her over there again tonight for Try #3. Have I mentioned that I am on the west side of SJ and my vet is on the east? The pains of rush hour traffic? Rush hour traffic during worst storm in 47 years?
I do love my dogs, really.
And if any of you hard-core clicker trainers can figure out how to train a dog to do Kegal exercises I'll totally fax you twenty bucks.
