White Dog has us puzzled. Steve took her to the Park early this morning and they had a great time. She has been getting tons of attention and nothing unusual has happened in the household. She is eating well and shows no signs of being ill. Yet when Steve came home from work he noticed a small puddle in the doorway to the kitchen. White Dog had peed on the floor! This is something she has not done since she was 5 months old! When she saw Steve cleaning up the spot, White Dog became very contrite and hid, ears lowered, avoiding eye contact. We both made a point of calling her out and cuddling her--telling her that it was all right and that accidents sometimes happen and that we hoped she was not sick. White Dog relaxed finally, but still we are concerned. Any thoughts out there?
