This is almost too funny to share! Sometimes, with great urgency, Finn will jump at our back door, and I had always thought that it was because she really, really needed to go out. Alas, I have found out that I have been duped! Many, many times! It seems as though Finn has been fake-squatting! She jumps at the door, not because she needs to go out, but because she just wants to go out. And sometimes I am just thinking she needs to go out, and so I say over and over "wee wee" and she squats. Well, I have been checking the area of said squats, and it seems that she HAS BEEN FAKING IT for at least a week! And I know there has been no wee wee because I am feeling the earth!
Crazy dog! Anyone else encounter a faker from time to time? There haven't been any accidents in the house, so it's not like she's been neglected, she just really wants to go out! and I don't give her treats for going wee wee outside anymore, so she isn't looking for a treat. I guess to just be outside and sniff the air or something? To look at the birds and squirrels?
