Everyone who knows me knows how much I love my dogs. They are my BABIES, part of our family. I would cut off a toe before I would allow harm to come to them.
Bear and Miss Kate, my 2 Shelties, have ALWAYS been SO good with their house-training. They used to NEVER go inside. That has now changed.
Normally, when I go out of town, my bff will watch them for me at her house. She's been unavailable recently, so, I hired a dogwalker. The first time I came home from a trip...there was poop EVERYWHERE in my place - which, may I add...has carpet and is a rental.
When I came home from a 2nd recent trip...same story, although not as much as before.
I could KINDA give them a pass for the times I was away and their "Mommy's not here" routine was shaken up.
BUT it's starting to happen on a somewhat regular basis now. For the last 2 mornings, I have waken up to poop. And it's not like I didn't take the dogs out before bed. Plus, there's been poop when I came home from work. And I don't know which one of them or both are guilty, since it happens when I'm not home or awake.
I can't even imagine how much I am gonna have to pay to get the carpet cleaned when I move out in a few months.
