This Little Shit

Keeps pissing all over my house. Pooping too. Bright green today.
Later I found a chewed up green crayon.

My bedroom smells like puppy pee and I can't identify exactly where it is coming from.

Not cool. Not cool at all.

Puppies are adorable for a reason. That reason is so you don't kick them to the curb.

Signed,
My dogs are 3 and 1, when do they stop being puppies, already? Damn.

P said...

Oh, yeah, I just couldn't remember why, but you just reminde me of why I don't have a pet.
(granted, our dog of 16 yrs. died two years ago and I'm still just not ready)

Oh my goodness, he's cute. Maybe that will save him from your wrath when he eats the Sharpie....

Rebecca said...

Have you tried crate training him? I had a hard time doing it, but it really does work. It only takes a few weeks and he'll be broken. Just cage him and let him out ONLY to eat and use the bathroom for about a week. Trust me, it'll be worth it in the long run. Sounds cruel, but you gotta go for it!

Thank god mine were older puppies and we didn't have to endure that...well, that shit. ;)

He is ADORABLE!

Puppies, like babies, are cute for a reason. Survival of the species!

Crate training will get the job done and you won't have so much to clean up.

Denise said...

Girl...I can totally relate...Bruster (our newest addtition,) has chewed up my sons earphones for his computer, my shoes, books and all kinds of crap..plus he freakin hikes his leg at any chair he walks by....I think it is too spite me but he is only 6 months old....if he wasn't so adorable I'd replace him with a fish.....sigh...maybe he is in on the conspiracy with my kids to get me to check out early...

Mitch said...

But, look at that face. He's so cute so you have to forgive him, right? As long as he's not doing it 6 mths ago, anyway.

jenn said...

But he's too damn cute to stay mad at!

I feel your pain. I have a puppy, well he's about 6 mos. old and he still isn't housebroken.
He's also started eating the cat's poo from her litterbox.

Joy said...

OOH OOH the above commenter Denise is compliments of me!! She reads my blog and I told her she must check you out that you were freakin hillarious; she agreed. so I told her to be sure to comment because you love it so much-yay me.

And like I said when you were thinking of getting a little puppy-They are cute for a reason!

I agree on the crate it does help.

I love him.

I know a great taxidermist... Puppy McPoopsTooMuch will be just as cute, but significantly less trouble.

Murphy has to be The Cutest Little Shit I've ever seen!

My little guy isn't house broken yet either but we are getting there. Do you use puppy pads for when you get distracted and forget to let him out in time? It makes clean up easier.

Also if you mix your cat's food with a little bit of pumpkin, the puppy won't eat their poop from the litter box. EEEEWWWW.

OMG he is so cute!! I am pretty sure every inch of our carpet is covered in pee now too. We can put out Lena and she will spend 15+ minutes outside only to come inside and shit or pee within 5 minutes. We tried crating her and she pees INSIDE the crate!! So much for the whole "Dogs won't pee where they slept deal." She also chews on everything. Tuesday I had to give her a bath because she ate a POOPY diaper and literally had diarrhea all over her fluffy little face (she is a maltipoo bichon mix). Cleaning that up was fun!

Amy said...

Oh but look how CUTE! I just want to squeeezzzee him!

Catfish said...

Crate the bastard! Make sure to get one that's not too big though, just enough for him to stand up and turn around. BUT don't use it as punishment...then it's counter-productive.

Val said...

Oh no...the phantom puppy pee smell!
I usually leave it to hubby to crawl around with his nose to the carpet looking for it! And once it's found...it is a perfect photo op!

Jason said...

My advice.

Trade that little dog in on a real dog and keep it outside where dogs belong.

I recommend a Lab or golden retriever. Your boys would love a real dog.

Ashley said...

Jason!! You know that cute little puppy would be snuggled up in bed with your crabby self.

However, we do have a white German Shepherd, Lily. She's not much of a character in the closet, she's like the retarded kid we keep secret. The gift from MIL that keeps on giving!

She too lives in the house though, and the boys aren't all that impressed with her.

I LMAO at the taxidermy comment and will look more into crate training. No way I'm locking him up for a week, that's just mean! I'll let Mr. Ashley pick up the poop instead.

Murphy doesn't mind peeing or pooping in his crate and that is where we keep him when we go out, so I'm not sure crate training will be his thing.

I haven't bought puppy pee pads yet because they are like $13!! And I want the little bastard to pee outside. Not on $13 pieces of paper.

Joy, thanks for sending Denise our way! Denise, we love Joy here. She'll be sitting at the Captain's table on the Closet Cruise for sure.

Yes, the dog is cute. However, I like medium size dogs that were breed for hunting.

The reason is that hunting dogs are breed for intelligence and to learn easily. Little show dogs are breed for looks and if they are smart and trainable that's just icing on the cake.

Plus, my boys would destroy a little dog like that. Labs will tolerate a lot of hair pulling, stick hitting and horsy riding. Little Kid will probably break at least one leg on that poor little dog before the year is out.

Seriously, kick the animals outside. You will be much happier if you do.

If you are serious about "training" the dog, go get the book by the Monks of New Skete on training dogs. Could be hard with your library problems but it is the best book out there for training a simple house dog.

Good Luck. A few tips though. Be sure to take the dog out right after you feed/water it or get home. Be sure to tell it that it is "poopy time" or some other cute name. Repeat the command "poopy time" over and over until he poops. After success, give a lot of praise and affection.

Be sure to 'punish' the bad behavior quickly and properly (see the book). NEVER hit the dog with ANYTHING....they don't understand that.

Try taking all the "accidents" and placing them in the yard where you would like for the dog to poop in the future. Let the dog see you remove the poop to the correct area (outside).

That's all I got.

I ditto Jason's comments on the Monk's guide. It's the best way...
