Lately I’ve been seeing a lot this:
That would be 3:06 a.m.
Two of the last three nights Snowy has woken us up with her barking anytime between the hours of 2 and 4 a.m. Either Marty or I then head downstairs assuming she has to go out, only to discover she’s already done her business on our carpet. Lovely.
Clearly Snowy is confused as to the order of things; she’s supposed to bark to let us know she has to go before actually going!
I’m actually getting quite frustrated because how the heck do you teach a dog to bark before she has to go out, not after?! As I’ve mentioned before, she has a bladder apparently made of steel because she’ll pee twice a day, max. She also goes #2 a lot less frequently than that so it’s very, very hard to get into any sort of routine.
It’s looking like it’s back to the crate for her at night 😦
But for the sanity of everyone who lives here, these 3 a.m. outings need to be eliminated. Even Lucy isn’t amused.
