She went out to do her business an hour and a half ago. And when she has to go, she will NOT go in the house. She will whine and whine and whine untill i get the point and let her out!
BUT tonight, i take her out, put her in her crate as i had to meet a friend for dinner, was gone MAYBE an hour and a half, come home, let her and my male gsd, max out. They are playing, rolling around, etc... and she literally stops SO RANDOMLY in the middle of playing, and squats. But not like squats and pees, squat... walks... pees all at the same time! Second time! First time was... oh idk 2 or more weeks ago! I thought ok, maybe that was a fluke. But since this is the second time, and he ALWAYS tells me when she has to go out... i just dont know what it could be!?

ANY idea's?! Id love some... :confused:

Maybe a urinary tract infection.

When I was helping out with a Greyhound group event, there was a female that was doing that all over the place, and the people there said she was marking. She was a senior though, about 13 years old or so.

I'd have her checked for UTI too. The need to go is so overwhelming with a UTI, they can't hold it. And peeing in the house could be her way of letting you know that there is something wrong.

Wait - this is outside?

They are playing, she feels like she has to pee, she stops, pops a squat and then keeps walking as she's peeing on her way back to play?

Yes, it could always be a UTI, but my dogs will do that if they want to get back to the game.
No this happernned twice in my living room. And she knows thats a no-no!

I was thinking of that.... but.... just curious on how exactly to get the sample lol

I mean i know it sounds easy enough... but i cant wrap my mind around the idea of me waiting for her to pee... following her.... walking beside/behind her as she squats.... and mind you she is an inch from the ground lol holding my small tupperware underneath her... ah!

haha:wild:

EDIT: the thought of it makes me giggle out loud... cause ruby has such an expressional face... i can see her looking at me on her level like... really mom.... what in gods name are you doing lol
