it was a lot easier with my small dog. this one can literally hold it for ...all of 50 minutes. Every hour to 1 and a half... it's tinkle, tinkle. goodness gracious. no break at night too.
letting her out every hour even in the wee morning hours?: check
lots of praise when going outside?: check (i have plenty of pics of her tooting ...i'm sick)
what happens if you leave her in there for 1 hr and a half? she tinkles in her crate ...and with lots of fur, that's a lot of soaked tinkle on her.
what happens if I hurry and let her out at an 1hr and a half? most of the time i make it ...but she likes to tinkle on mommy too.
is the crate the right size?: check, check... enough for her to only turn around in. the one featured below is just one I leave in the living room. my dear pup spends her life in the kitchen in her other crate.
time. patience... must remember... time and patience. ....it's only been 2 days. the worse has yet to begin... lol
She is such a baby!!
So this is where I should go potty? ...but it's so much more convenient to go on you while you're carrying me to the backyard door.
herd my fur-sister, herd my fur-sis. one track mind. herd my fursis.
follow the leader, follow the leader... <singing: ...a chasing we will go, a chasing we will go... hi-ho a merry-o ...a chasing we will go>
so you like chasing me, eh? well you listen here sheepie... as long as this gate stands between you and I ...I will taunt and tease you until mommy sees.
look lady... if you're going to give me 3 different size crates, I am going to lay in all of them ...understand? so take that *tongue thrown at mom*
that's all folks. nighty-night!
