    Thank god I only have Jax with his short hair and now that we have switched his food, he doesn't shed as much. For awhile, his little hairs were all over the couch and our clothes!

Ollie peed and pooped in the crate as a puppy and would only cry AFTER he made a mess....like hey I'm in here with my MESS COME CLEAN THIS UP. I used to get so frustrated with him. He was not supposed to pee or poop where he sleeps. But put him on the bed and that all stopped. WEIRD....My boy is strange, but I'm happier with him in bed with me for sure. He's a cuddle bug, after WILD MAN TIME is complete. WE have a routine where as soon as we get into bed he wants to play and play rough! The hubby plays hard with him and likes to smack him in the face, but I keep yelling at him cut that out! Get his toy and play with him, don't teach him to bite your hands dork! My man doesen't always get it.....
    Hi Julie - Leo is 3 years old. Old enough he should know better. What is weird is he will hold his bladder all day while I'm at work, 98% of the time, he has not peed in his crate, or anywhere else in the bathroom during the day. However, the past several nights, I have woken up to take him out for his AM potties and he has peed in his crate, either overnight, or early in the morning. It's frustrating. Unfortunately, the hubby does not want doggies sleeping in the bed with us (that was my compromise because I would have him up there in a heartbeat). Sooooooo....... not sure where to go from here.

    Yeah, leather is nice for that...... except for that 1 inch around the bottom of the furniture that hair sometimes sticks to because of static electricity!

    Hmm that is a tough one. If he's been holding it for years and now is not, sounds like something I would ask your vet. Odd. I understand I really didn't want Ollie in the bed with us. I didn't want my bed smelling like dog and I prefer to have him in his bed next to mine, but after 3 weeks of broken sleep 2X a night I gave in and put him in bed with us. You might try setting the alarm maybe an hour eariler (try a weekend when you can go back to bed) and see if the crate is dry? If so, then maybe he's just not able to hold it anymore all the time? I assume you take him out potty right before bed right? If not, I would definately start that routine. You could also pick up the water a couple hours before bed time. That could help too!

    I don't know if he's been holding it for years. We just adopted him. He is retired from a breeder. He probably wasn't real disciplined in the first place, I can imagine it would be hard for a breeder to house train so many Frenchies.

    Yes, we take him out right before bedtime. But what I don't understand is how he can hold it all day (8 hrs), but not all night (usually less than 8 hrs)....

    It could be that beacuse he's holding it all day that he's not able to hold it all night too. Or maybe something else is going on. Try picking up the water a couple hours before bed and see if that helps and since your going to be at the vets office i could go ahead and ask the question. Let me know if that helps.
