Social network for pugs and their people.
Woke up this morning to take Bella out on her morning potty break, and I must say that she is quite the brat. I have to "herd" her in the direction we have to go in, but she has a defiant streak in her. I don't blame the little gal, I forget that she's only been with us for a relatively short amount of time (about 5 months) and she isn't a puppy at 3-4 years old. I'm very sorry to get frustrated with her, every time I see what she's doing she seems to just want more time out and longer walks. At least she's not the lazy, little chubby puggy we picked up in January. It's going to take some time and training, but I know Bella will come around.
It's when we get inside I get my sweetheart pug back. She is up for cuddles and is a doll once we are back in the comfort of our home. This morning I collapsed for a nap after our walk and almost overslept. I kept slapping the alarm and fell back asleep. I then heard this faint rumbling sound, like a train far, far away. It was soft and steady and I felt it was closer than I thought. I opened my eyes and next to my head was my pug, snoring away. That's a wake up call I can get used to!
A little worry that made itself apparent last night. Bella drinks quite a bit of water before bed time, so I take her out after midnight so she can pee. Problem is, she doesn't pee late at night. She's ready to run back inside once out. I feel bad when she has to wait until 8-9:30 to pee again in the morning. At our earliest we wake up at around 8, and the latest she has gone pee is around 10-11. I'm worried that she might be holding it too long, and there hasn't been any accidents in this place since the very first week she came here. Aside from in her litter pan and the restroom when we're gone, Bella doesn't pee inside. Not even when she did have the bloody urine and frequent peeing would she use the restroom inside while we were home. I want her to use her pan while we're sleeping so she doesn't have to wait. She's might be a bratty baby, but she's still my baby and I want her to not have to go through the pain and stress of urinary tract problems.
