When you throw a ball or toy tell your arm hurts. And she comes back for more and sets it on your lap and looks at you with the sweetest eyes in the world you say okay one more time.

When you shovel heavy wet snow (not just once, but many times) to create paths for the little rascal to do his business, and then stumble and follow him on the paths while he decides where he wants to piddle, and then poop, (a lot of sniffing, squatting, and changing of mind involved), all this while thinking how nice and warm it is inside the house

I second that, Siewhwee. It sure is a labor of love and each winter, year after year, we keep showing them how much we love them by shoveling those mazes all around the yard so they can find the right spot.

We don't shovel snow in the Bay Area but I have been standing out in the cold pouring rain for the last few weeks. He wants company while he goes potty, as well as encouragement and making a fuss over his success. And of course he needs that treat immediately after!

Couldn't agree more - I shovel the grass 1st before the driveway so my baby girl still has her "regular spots" to go on (because apparently all grass is not the same )
