It’s official: Miss Heather is now staple-free (again!). Let’s hope she stays that way. Her eye is all better now, too, and her energy abounds. It is good to see her smile and cruise across the park with her head to the ground and her butt up in the air before flopping over and giving herself a good back-scratching courtesy of the green grass below. Yes, my little girl is happy — and healthy — again.
This weekend, she got to spend some quality time with Scottie Dad, who was on Scottie Duty this weekend while I was away. And as evidence in the recycle bin suggests, she and her brother got some treats Scottie Mom didn’t approve or anticipate in the form of yummy Filet Mignon moist food. Looks like this little girl’s got her daddy wrapped around her paw! Not only did he buy her dinner, he surprised her with a beautiful new, purple leash when tragedy struck and the double leash we bought last year went for its very last walk.
Heather Beather returned Scottie Dad’s random acts of kindness by peeing on the couch during my absence twice and one additional time in the elevator, much to Scottie Dad’s dismay. Alas, that did not stop him from trying his best to keep her safe and happy as I enjoyed some R&R in San Antonio, Texas. Needless to say, with health troubles seemingly behind us, perhaps it is time for us to again consider some sort of training with special Scottie Dad and daughter bonding time so we aren’t mopping the floors everytime Heather sees her favorite man (besides Mr. K, that is).
And so, I open up the floor to you, fellow Scottie Moms and Dads. What are your suggestions to curb submissive urination? Can these accidents be avoided with time, patience and practice or does this Scottie Mom have to race Scottie Dad home every night to ensure we don’t have any more accidents? And lastly, to sign up Scottie Dad and daughter for behavioral training, or no?
