If heaven is waiting 4 hours for a dog to take a shit, then send me to hell!

Demon Dog Herself

Ok, it may seem bizarre but………….

There I was, freezing my ass of, for hours, waiting for her to “go potty” outdoors so I could praise her and therby start the whole “Toilet training process” as prescribed by ALL the “experts“.

I sat out there, I tempted, I cajoled, I overfed, I overwatered,…… nothing.
It became like a battle of wills, and boy was she determined.

This is a tiny dog remember, fed twice her normal daily amount, given more excercise and water than a champion sprinter on a hot day.
And will she “go”………….nope, not one drop!!

Now, I dont give up easilly, I finally bring her back inside but, keeping her on the lead.
Every 20 mins, for the next godess knows how long, I bring her outside and beg and plead and cry at her to go, yes, there were almost tears!

Later, I thought, hang on,…………

opened the door, brought her out (into our enclosed garden so she couldnt escape), let her off her lead to run around a bit, …………immediately! As soon as the lead is off.
I was ecstatic, yelling for Noah (and everyone within a 10 mile radius), to “come look!”……..
Since then, not a problem, soon as the lead comes off, there she goes,………….

bloody “experts”!

  1. And not a moment too soon, I may add! I swear, gawd knows that dog is all kinds of adorable, but… well, let’s just say it’s a damn good thing she *is* so adorable. ;)

  2. Welcome to puppy parenthood, guys! Yes, the first few months are going to be a bit hectic and messy, but oh is it going to be worth it! Cassie will soon figure out when you’re having a down day and will instinctively cuddle up to you, perhaps give you a lick or two, and make the world feel like a much better place…
