Out of the Blue

I ended up letting the Gunnar-man roam the house without a doggie diaper yesterday, and he peed on the stove three different times. I don't know where this habit originated, but it has become completely ingrained (hence just giving up and diapering him). When we get a new stove that diaper's never coming off him. But it was a good way to celebrate National Pets Day. As for today, it's the anniversary of the first manned space flight by Yuri Gagarin back in 1961. That makes it Cosmonautics Day in Russia and some former Soviet territories, and the International Day of Human Space Flight elsewhere. Yesterday's stove episode was enough celebration for one week, so I think I'll skip launching myself into orbit today.

Gunnar's male, ja? No matter what, he's going to have the instinct to mark his territory. It's his home, he's lived there his whole life, so he marks it as such. Why the stove in particular? Until dogs learn to talk, we'll probably never know the exact answer. All I can say is that it sounds normal to me for him to want to do that, especially since he's 'man of the house' now, canine-wise.

Yeah, this covers it very well.

I would imagine that he occasionally lifts his leg to it even with the diaper on. We had a German Shepard that did the same with a diaper on.

He absolutely does. I line the belly bands with disposable baby diapers and we joke that we can tell how anxious he's been by how heavy the diaper is when I take it out.

This is one of the big reasons why I only get females. Once fixed, they rarely exhibit a problem like this unless it's a medical issue that they can't help.

Hudson would only go in the house when left alone too long, and the experience always left her visibly upset. The idea of intentionally doing that would have made her brain explode.
