Seriously. Never wanted an excited pee-er, but guess what I have? *bangs head on desk* Please tell me he will outgrow this when he gains more bladder control, because if I have a 90 pound dog peeing in the house whenever he gets excited...*sighs*
When Squash was a wee lad, sometimes he would be busy doing something and then leap up and make a beeline for the back door, dribbling all the way and then just peeing while I fumbled with the door. Sometimes the mind is willing but the flesh is still immature and weak. They outgrow it.



After a few experiments it is clear that Squash is not yet ready to be uncrated when home without humans, so I broke down and got him a bigger kennel. I'd been trying to make do but if he's gonna continue to be in there he needs some more room. The picture on the box is a Great Pyr but the recommend breeds are thus:



Not that I don't think akitas, bloodhounds, and collies need their space, but it just seems like such an odd collection of recommended breeds for an extra large crate. GIANT COLLIES EVERYWHERE.

Also, it comes with... a snap-on handle. Because I might randomly get the urge to just carry this giant unwieldy thing that I can barely drag and push over the carpet around by a tiny snap-on handle.

This give me hope.

It was just especilly annoying tonight because I thought I'd just given him liberty to go into the bedroom (since our apartment is literaly only two rooms - the bedroom and the living room/kitchen area I didn't think it would be that big of a leap) thinking he would enjoy the extra space to play...and he peed on my bed. :/ He is a naughty puppy tonight.

Haha, you're very lucky if you survive puppyhood without your bed getting peed on.

I'm in France and I miss my puppies!!! I need to get them passports.

They're staying with their nain and taid and I just KNOW they will be the size of barrels when they come home

Right?! Rhys dropped a turd on our bed about three days in before I could snatch him up and run like a crazy person towards an exit.

Cali loves the beach! I took her down last night in the rain and she was doing zoomies all over the place and dug a few holes. I thought her fur would be completely red but I was pleasantly surprised.

This morning, my mom and I decided to head down since my sister decided to sleep in, and we were greeted by a Newfoundland dog. He was super friendly and eventually came down to the beach, but considering he couldn't have weighed any less than 150 pounds, I carried Cali until he finally decided to head back to his own cottage.

It's probably because there are a couple papillon breeders here, but just about everyone at the farmer's market knew Cali was a papillon. One girl did ask if papillons were related to chihuahuas, but it's still better than constantly being asked if Cali is a long haired chihuahua.

I think at first, she was overwhelmed by all the people but eventually, she was extremely happy to give everyone kisses, including a very big and hairy biker.

I always like it when I take Abrams into TSC...everybody there knows he is a Chessie and comments on how pretty he is. Versus a pet supply store, where I get asked, "Is that a Labradoodle?" "What a pretty chocolate Lab!" lol

Beau and Rose just went home. I has a big sad. House feels weird with just 2 dogs now.

Rose was super excited to leave though. Not even a glance back, she was like 'see ya!'
