Housebreaking a puppy is not an easy task when your hip is giving you trouble and it's raining cats and...uh...dogs outside.
Yes, that rain the meteorologists told us wouldn't come again till spring is here. The skies are gray, the ground is soggy, and our Sonya is too persnickety to use the backyard when the vinyl mat in front of the kitchen sink does so well for number one and the dining room floor is perfect for the other. She's also pretty stealthy about it.
At least Fiorella knows where to look, the mat can be wiped up, and the concrete floor is easily cleaned.
But once Fio's hip is better, Sonya better mind her Pees and Cues.
