As you all may know, we have a chihuahua. He thinks he has earned the title of "King" in our household especially since Chris has been allowing him to sleep with us at night. He comfortably wiggles his way into the middle of the bed and pushes both of us to the edges. While doing this he also manages to steal most of the cover as well.
Lately, the main concern is his "potty" habits. He was doing just fine until recently. The dog will now wake up between 3 and 4 in the morning and jump off of the bed and walk in circles until we escort him outside. This behavior is extremely annoying. We do not like to hear the pitter patter (spelling?) of little feet on our carpet at those hours of the morning. I am afraid just to let him continue walking in circles (not for the fear of him just becoming dizzy and passing out, that would actually be alright), I do not want him to lay a "big one" on the floor....so this is what we are dealing with, not any life changing event, just a lot of dog poo!
Since our children are grown enough to sleep through the night, we did not have night duty any longer (YAY).....but now, Chris takes a night, then I take the next. Who would have thought it would have come to this....Marital Dog "Dootie"!!!
