Last night I made the horrible mistake of ignoring Wally's attempt at getting my butt out of bed to take him outside. I stepped on a little surprise in the dark and I could have kicked myself for not "getting his message."
Before we go to bed, I take him outside and he tinkles. He did that...but he also had to go #2 and I guess I just didn't give him enough time. We got ready for bed and we scooped him up. He jumped off the bed and kept pacing around the room. I heard him jump on the couch, then a few minutes later off of it.. then he'd want to jump in bed (or so I thought) so I scooped him up, put him in bed, and once again he jumped off. The second time he came over trying to jump in bed, I ignored him. I figured he'd get tired of trying to jump in bed with us that he'd go to his bed and spend the night there. He did...but after he did a #2 by the door.
The whole time he was trying to tell me that he needed to go out. Well....now I know what that all means, right? :)
No matter how tired you are, always take them out...one last time.
