Okay, I have to tell this one. Keeper uses his pad only in emergencies. Big emergency is rain--we don't do water from the sky. Several weeks ago, first thing in the morning and needing to go, he went to the front door which I opened and said 'it's raining, Keeper, go on your pad'. Immediate race to the pad to deposit a lake. Then he stepped off the pad and just stared at me. The really scarey thing is that I knew exactly what he wanted. He was saying, 'surely you don't expect me to finish my business on a dirty pad where I might get something disgusting on my paws'. Of course not--I am SO well trained. I wadded up the wet pad, took it to the garage, got a new pad and laid it down. He stepped on the new pad immediately and finished his business. Would have given anything for a video of this. I just think the boy did a spectacular job of training.
