Dear hubby has been working crazy hours, long hours, stressful hours. As soon as he gets home he heads to the back yard.
A few months ago, we got the dog trained to go to the bathroom behind the shed. She was doing great until it snowed. Now she goes behind the shed AND all over the snow. When the snow starts to melt, she tapers back her poop area to just where the snow is. Weird.
So, hubby has been spending training time with her before she eats. Then after she eats, he takes her for a run and gets her to go in the right place. All told, it takes about an hour of his time each night/early morning.
When he came in last night, I nonchalantly asked, "So....if I poop on the lawn, will you start paying attention to ME?"
