Is this a one time deal???

Today when I got home from the gym (I go 5x a week 3am until 5), I always lock all three dogs in the back hall kitchen area, Boo Boo had peed in Misty's food dish!!!! There was a lot of pee and some on the floor, also poo near by. I know it was him, Yogi never has an accident (Boo Boo is older). Some times Misty and Boo Boo don't get along, he is blind so some of the things he does seem weird, they don't fight just normal grr's when he crashes into her or jumps up and on her, no fighting. Do you think he did this on purpose and should I be concerned?

Hi Robbie, I doubt he did this on purpose . Dogs are not vindictive. Have you read any articles about blind dogs? From what I've heard, this is an excellent book for blind dog owners. http://www.petcarebooks.com/books/living_blind.htm

Robbie, I had a hard time getting past the part that you workout 5 times a week for 2 hours a day...lol I wish I had that energy. Now, I don't know why BooBoo was a little stinker. My Pom was blind and as she got older she started having lots of accidents. I think maybe she got nervous bumping into things. I really don't think BooBoo did it on purpose. How old is he now?

Aw, poor baby. I don't believe it was on purpose either. Dave, I don't know how you always manage to come up with the perfect thing every time.

You work out 10 hours a week?? Egads..what I wouldn't give a smidgen of that. If I carry in groceries my joints ache and burn so bad I can't imagine lifting something for fun?? who does that??? lol (i'm kidding, I'm just totally jealous! )

Yeah..I'm thinking it was an accident or he was just smelling something near the bowl that made it seem like a good place to go.

I wouldn't worry unless it keeps happening, its probably a fluke.

Oops I mean 3pm to 5pm, I use to do the 5am to 7am. Now I take my neighbour who needs to go for her health. She kind of slows me down, but I want to have a friend left in old age so we can sit at Starbucks and gossip about the young people. Do you think they will still have Starbucks then?
Boo Boo went blind early from PRA. He is 13 1/2 now and has always been independant and somewhat dominant. He does things like lay in the door way so other dogs can't get by. Sometimes take their food and bully and he is always first (if he can manage it) to go out and check out noises in the yard. He dosn't always do this, it seem to be random. I wondered if he was marking. Often the other dogs will wipe their dirty paws and faces on Boo Boo's bed.
Funny thing is I have been thinking about that same book just hadn't ordered it, now I will. Maybe I can see what I'm missing.

Pee in bowls

I fostered and then adopted a female puppy mill rescue a couple of months ago and I was told right off the bat that she peed in the water bowl at her first foster home. When I brought her in our house for the first time, she prompted peed on the rug by the back door and fairly soon peed in the water bowl. I solved that with using a high bowl that her but could not reach (glad she was not a boy). She has peed in the food bowls of my other dogs a couple of times when I did not get them picked up quicky enough. Since she has been her a couple of months and seems to be feeling quite comfortable, I thought she would not longer pee in a bowl. I was wrong, she peed in our senior Havanese who is the alpha of the three the other day after not doing anything for many weeks.

She has never deliberately peed on the floor since (just the bowls). She has had some accidents where it was just too long for her -- during the day 4-5 hours is her limit, although she does fine over night.

I thought this was a marking her turf and probably related to being a mill dog.

I have another take on it. I would contact my vet and have him checked out. One of my schnauzers started peeing and pooping all over the place at about that age. I finally had to crate her during the day. Broke my heart cause she had never been crated. She only lived about another 6 months. This very well could be age related and the vet may have some ideas.

BooBoo has IBS so this is the reason he is locked in kitchen area he uses the dog door if ita is open, when I am gone I lock all the dogs in. Also all my dogs see the vet at a drop of a hat, I board them at the vet and one of my vets lives two blocks away. So it is not a health issue. He is a mill dog!!! Today when I came home again he had peed in Misty's dish. Tonight she peed over his pee out in the yard maybe its a pack order thing. I am going to lock in in the back hall alone with the dog door open tomorrow. I do have locks on the gate. I lobby for domestic animal rights ie., pound animals, puppy mills etc., some of my hunter neighbors don't like it so I am uber paranoid. I am not radical but I am effective in a quiet way.
