Aah, the joys of having a dog.

Today's Sunday. That means we sleep in. Well, Saku apparently missed that memo, and drank from the toilet last night.

Around 11am, I wake up to the sound of water running. In our bedroom. In Saku's cage. He's squatting there pissing on the floor (the cage has a hard plastic liner, which is good), and the puddle has just reached his forepaws.

Well, I leap out of bed, grab a towel, and wait for him to finish. When he's done he happily trots out of his cage, leaving yellow footprints all over the bedroom while I'm mopping up the puddle in his cage.

I get it all cleaned up, and take the towel down to toss in the washer. As I'm doing that, Saku squats and leaves a big huge stinking pile of dog turd on the basement floor.

I let him out back, he waters a bush, and comes back in. OK, good, he's probably done.

So, I take him upstairs and hop in the shower, to wash off myself and the cage liner. I figure he'll be fine.

Nope. I get out of the shower, start drying off, and right in front of me he squats and leaves another (smaller) pile in the bedroom.

Now he thinks he's going to get some of my pizza.

Aah, the joys of having a dog.

I think Keman's still er... borrowing it.

-Phyx, who noticed a certain pair of holes in a certain collar from back then. ;-)

It allowed the shock-collar module to be fitted to an arbitrary collar of choice. ;-)

Saku is housebroken.

This is more of an issue of... confusion as to who last took him out, + many hours gone by + saku drinking a crapload of water.

My insomnia is in full swing at the moment, so I didn't get to sleep until about 7AM this morning. Time has been a bit of a blur to say the least. So. Yeeeah. :P

When Keman says "confusion", what he means is that last night at 4:30am when he came to bed and I asked him "Did you take Saku out after I went to bed?", his response of "Yes" was merely so that he wouldn't have to go back down and take Saku out.

True... but Saku and toilet water don't mix.

I see he's also switching back to the 45 second rule... you have 45 seconds from the time your presence becomes known until you go out for a walk with him... "or else".

Mix up a spray bottle with 60%+ Nature's Miracle, a squirt of "ODORKLEEN Super Concentrate Deoderizing Cleaner" (syrupy green stuff you can get at some PETCO locations), and the balance with warm water; apply liberally to relevant surfaces. The pawprints and stuff should go away.

As an addendum...

Drop a towel in front of the cage so the footprints get made there, not on the carpet. Leave the pee there, take Saku out first. It isn't like it'll dry -that- fast.

Why do I sound like I've done this? ;-)

Except for that the liner has a few cracks in it, so if pee isn't cleaned up immediately it seeps through to the carpet.

D'oh. Time to get another one...
