  1. The Front Porch

    Welp, Faith wasnt humiliated enough apparently. Came home to a super soaked couch tonight. Im off this weekend so my plan is to give the diapers a trial run. I don't think she would be able to get to the diaper to shred it, but wonders never cease. So Ill diaper her and leave for a little while and see how it goes. I did speak with a coworker today who used to train dogs for people and she says that given Faiths age I probably wont be able to train her not to pee on the couch at this point. Coworker says shes doing it because shes angry and those behaviors are the hardest to fix. She suggested removing Faith from access to the couch but I explained that that would isolate her from Benny (who is crated in the living room and loves her crate) and Jenna (who sleeps on the couch all day and whose days have become very limited...as in I think its time, if you get my drift). The coworker agreed that isolating her would probably be worse, she'd probably resort to being destructive even though she has never been. So...wish me luck and that the diapers at least help some!

    So on my days off I ventured next door to the thrift store and picked up a couple pairs of toddlers/kids pants for a quarter a pair. I cut a hole for Faiths tail and put them on her just to see her reaction. I think she was so humiliated that when I left the house for hours yesterday, I came home to a dry couch. Lol. I included a pic of her in her hot pants so you can see her poor expression. I didnt leave them on long, her poor little sad face got to me. Dont get me wrong, I dont at all think she's fixed and my coworker brought me actual diapers to try today, but I thought it was pretty coincidental amd funny that she didnt pee on the couch for 2 days after having on a pair of pants lol.

    She still gets the same amount of attention she was getting before Benny. She still sleeps with me at night all snuggled up tight. Neither of them have been to the farm in a good while because its just been too hot. When I do take them I take them together to avoid coming back home to a pee pee couch. BUT, she was doing this before Benny came.

    (Wheres that little icon with the head banging on the brick wall? Lol, thats what I feel like) Any chance that once she pees on herself a few times and has to have a bath (which she dislikes), that she'll stop this nonsense?? Maybe?

    Aww, what POS. People disgust me sometimes. I bet youll find one at an auction. Theres plenty around here for sure. Sometimes Im glad I dont own my own land lol.

    Actually Im off for the next few days and Im sure its going to be too hot to even enjoy the outside, so Ill be inside. Ive already googled dog diaper pattern and may crochet one up and line it with a dish towel or something just to try, maybe get her used to wearing one. I do wonder though...will she still pee and Ill have a dog to bathe when I get home? Ugh.

    I have never understood that either!

    I tell her all the time that shes very lucky that I love her. Like I said before, she is perfect in every way except this one issue.

    Im buying the cloth ones when I get paid Thursday. Hopefully she cant shred those. Left work early today cause the census was low and my sciatica nerve wants to be a pain today, so I didnt get those diapers from my friend/coworker to try. Oh well.

    We've been to the vet for this a couple times. Ive tried giving her the benefit of the doubt but the vet cant find anything wrong. He says its behavioural. She hasnt always done it. A friend is bringing me some diapers for her today. I have the next 3 days off and will leave her for a short period with a diaper on and see what she does.

    With the heat and her short nose, Id be afraid she'd suffocate. Then theres the very real reality that someone might steal her.
  13. The Front Porch

    I have thought about that (and have recommended them to others) but I haven't tried one. I might pair it with a doggie diaper lol. Im willing to try just about anything at this point.

    Help, before I lose my mind! My 10 year old dog Faith (pitbull x bull terrier) has been having a behavioral issue for some time now. She is absolutely perfect in every way except this ONE issue, and its driving me nuts! I believe she has separation anxiety. Ive been told that dogs dont do things for spite, that they dont think that way, but Im telling you..SHE DOES! I work 3 days a week, 12 hour shifts. When Im at work she pees on the couch, particularly in the spot I sit in. Don't worry, I have the couch covered down to a science so the pee never gets on the couch its self. Plastic matress cover from Dollar Tree, 2 blankets ontop of that and another blanket covering it all. And every evening when I get home, the couch gets stripped, wet blankets go into the washer, matress cover gets tossed and I start all over. This evening took the cake. Got home and the couch is covered in pee...and so is the floor. (I have them confined to the living room) There was enough pee for 3 or 4 dogs. Im so aggrivated. Just once Id like to come home from work and just crash on the couch, but nope, I have to redress it first. So, crate her right??? I wish. She used to crate very well years ago and then I dont know what happened but I came home one day and she had pushed her way out of the crate, her entire face and head was very swollen from pushing against the metal. I tried and tried to retrain her to crate, and she would hurt herself trying to get out. It was so bad that I was afraid that she would really get herself hemmed up and possibly die. Now, before you tell me that 12 hours is a long time for her to hold her bladder...she doesnt pee on the couch (or inside) at all when Im home on my days off. She will happily lay in bed or on the couch for 12 hours and not once need to go out. But if I leave her...yep. I absolutely take her out to pee before leaving so I don't know where shes even storing all this extra pee. I kid you not, I could take her out to pee, leave her for 30 minutes, and she'll pee on the couch. This dog is doing it for spite! Benny and Jenna both hold their bladders when Im gone. A coworker suggested doggie diapers and I seriously think Im going to give them a try.

    Depends on how I feel lol. Landlord is very picky about who fishes his ponds and usually its catch and release. But, hes told me I can keep some. I toss them back, unless Im hungry and/or feel like going through the trouble of cleaning them. Same goes for public lakes.
