First, the dogs think I should win the mischief of the week award in our house because I didn't pull out the camera and take a million new pictures of them for the blog this week. The temperature (which is much cooler now) and the stress of work (it is a work in progress, we are moving forward) left me with little energy and spirit. This week will hopefully be much better.
However, I say the mischief of the week goes to Ms. Hailey Bug. I got up Saturday morning at 6:45 to take the pups out. While Hailey did a poop, she did not pee. This is highly unusual for our girl. I wondered if she had peed in the house as I had heard her up before I got up. Couldn't find anything. She ate and drank. We kept taking her out, hoping she would pee. We decided if she hadn't peed by Sunday morning we would take her to the vet because she didn't seem to be in any distress. Finally, about 12 hours after her last pee, she had a big pee and we celebrated. She got 6 cookies for being such a good girl!
My best guess is that since it has been so hot, she just got a little dehydrated. She has been back to her normal peeing self.
I always find it a little stressful when one of my pets changes his/her habits. It always causes that moment of panic.
