OK, this is weird..........

So Kaiser has been under the weather for 2 days, loosies & vomiting.. vet checked him out, gave him saline & meds.. Ok so, I've put up a jute sack for potty training him in my room & will slowly move it away to the bathroom;

Now the weird part, he sleeps on the same jute sack he peed on!!! I thought dogs don't do that?! Does anyone else's or is Kaiser the sore thumb? Not just sleep, he eats this calcium treat on that same sack!

Needless to say, I move him off it when he's eating but I find it really weird & wonder crate training won't be as fast if he keeps doing the same thing (provided I buy a crate)

I hope that Kaiser starts feeling better soon. Normally dogs do not like to lay in places that they have soiled on, do you have a rug or doggy bed for your boy to sleep in?

Hi Karen,
Yes I thought so too, but apparently, this isn't the case with him! I don't have a dog bed cos I'm sure the bugger will rip it to pieces as soon as it hits the ground!

And he's a little better, no more vomiting but the good thing is he's still active! That counts for something eh?

Good to hear he is active and I hope is 100% soon. Do you think that his being sick may have anything to do with his willingness to use the sack for both purposes? I don't have any other ideas.

Hey Nigel, sorry I don't follow.. It's not like he wishes to stay on it.. Like if I pick him up & put him elsewhere, he'll sleep in the new place without any qualms.. So I really don't know what to think of it :S.. maybe I'm just over reacting.. It's not a big deal, is it? 1st time pet owner (notice I said pet, not even dog :O) so I'm really confused by this!

And the vet told me no more meat for him till he's older & he's done with his vaccines.. he's done with 2 already.. but the trainer insists we use sausages as treats (though he'll do anything for his puppy biscuits too!)

Thanks for ur wishes guys..
