On the dog....
This afternoon I saw her laying in my room, starting to pee, so I excitedly invited her to go downstairs and out front: "Come on little sweetie, lets go!" Once she made it out the front door, I ran back up for vade mecum. When I got back outside she was laying there, in a large puddle. Tonight she was in the garage while hi was doing some work--I had brought down her orthopedic bed so she wasn't stuck with cold hard concrete. When I tried to get her up to go to the bedroom, she was in a very large puddle on her bed..... Last night, she woke me up twice to go outside. Apparently, not to urinate. :)
