If you know my email address you should know how very apt it is right now. Did I mention that Nico, the pup we're babysitting, is not housetrained? I sat out on the lawn with him for hours today. Nothing. Then, thirty seconds after we came back indoors, he made a lovely puddle in the middle of the kitchen floor. We lucked out with one offering of the solid variety on a newspaper but found a second under a group of hibiscus plants and a third on my son's bedroom floor. The puddles have been everywhere. Fortunately, our downstairs area is all tile but the wee fellow has also christened the hallway rug upstairs. I think we have five more days of this. Makes Minx' vegans sound like pretty attractive guests. Our guest even does rude things against your arms and legs. Vegans don't do that, do they, Minx?

Not sure, didn't give them the chance!
Puppies learn a lot slower than kittens but a friend used the same trick with her new puppy recently. She soaked up the wee with an incontinence pad and left it in an accessible, well ventillated spot. She also placed a poo, or two, there as well! The puppy eventually got the idea and after much praise and treats he returned to his new loo time after time! Slowly she inched it towards the back door and then put it outside - et voila!
As to the 'leg humping' problem, you can buy a spray that puts them off funiture and legs - that and a very strong 'NO' as you remove him from his sport!

Seems to work well enough, Minx!
