Ok, in like 12 hours we have had 6 “accidents” in our house. It started last night…We were all in the kitchen and Peaches went in the living room and peed on the carpet. I happen to glance over and caught her. So I told her BAD and then ignored her the rest of the night. Well, right before I went to bed I saw someone peed upstairs. I don’t know which one. I think it was Piper because I made Peaches go in her box shortly before then.
Then this morning, Piper got out of bed before us. Rather than going to his box, he pooped and peed upstairs by our loft. Then just as I was getting ready to leave for work, I cam e out of the bathroom and saw that someone had peed in our bedroom. Don’t know who that was. Then I went downstairs and saw that Piper (I can tell the difference in their poops) had pooped on the stair landing.
WTF is going on??? :mad: It’s not like they have to go outside in the cold or snow. They just have to go downstairs to their litter boxes in a nice heated bathroom to potty. Why are they going all over the house all of a sudden??? :confused:
Man! They have sure been busy! Maybe Piper is having one of those stages where he forgets about housetraining and Peaches is joining in the fun. Napoleon had a couple of those...seemed like he was going inside for no reason!! that they get their memories back!
Or should I say OH DOG!! :lol: I so know what your going through but I know the reason for the set back in my house. It's called 13 puppies that everyone think they need to watch like hawks and they forget to go outside.
Maybe a day of potty training 101 refresher course is in order.

Tanya, Charlie has about the same frequency as Peaches. At least with Charlie, I've always assumed that since he can go whenever he wants, and doesn't have a set schedule for bathroom time, he's never bothered to hold it and so just goes whenever he gets the slightest urge.

Is Peaches done with her medications and back on normal food? I'm just wondering if she's having a tough transition back from her diarrhea, or is still partly ill. Could Piper's tummy be upset too? He could be following big sister's lead.
I know how you feel. My puppers were at 100% and 90% housebroken, then started having accidents here. Pokey did because he was ill, which I understand. Marta did because of being a high-strung lifelong SA ridden whippet.
Are they smelling the extra accidents around? I know you're a scrubber! Maybe put pee-pads out in a special place to save your hair for the time being.
