Little Piddle Problem- by Dexter
Oh geesh, I am so embarrassed. I do not even know where to start. Lately, I have been having a bit of a problem. A, um, piddle problem. Let me explain.
Even though Mommy and Daddy were told us doxies are stubborn and hard to potty train, I have been doing really well for months now. Mommy and Daddy have me on a pretty set schedule, and I never have accidents in my crate or on the floor. But lately, something weird has been happening.
I, um, wow, there is no easy way to say this. Lately, I get so happy to see Mommy and Daddy that I piddle a little on the floor. It does not matter if I just went out to potty or what. For instance, Daddy took me out at like 6:15 this morning. When Mommy came home at 7, she opened the crate, and I was so happy to see her, I tinkled a little on her toes. I was mortified.
I know this is not the most polite thing to talk about but I am at a loss dear friends. What can I (or Mommy) do to stop this from happening? Do any of you ever have this trouble? Is this just a growth spurt I may be going through? It has happened just a couple of times in the past, but this week it has happened two days in a row. I do not want Mommy to get upset. She says she doesn't get mad, that she knows I am just excited and not trying to actually potty inside. But still, I want to make Mommy happy and proud of what a good dog I am, and it is hard to do that when you tinkle on her feet, at least I think so. Is this something I will grow out of, or will I just be an excitable pee-er for the rest of my life?
I know Mommy loves me, and always will no matter what, but any advice is most appreciated!
