Not all my blog visitors will appreciate this photo but those with new pups will. Hallie went to bed at about 10pm and woke me at 6am by barking and so after a big welcome I let her outside and voila, the photo is the result and her pen was completely dry. So at 8 weeks she can hold her bladder. During the day, we still have a few accidents by my french doors when they are shut even when my other back door is open. The french doors show the garden, the back door doesn't. Strangely enough even my adult dogs ofton ask to go out via the French doors when the back door is open and they get short change and called 'thick' but for dogs noted for their intelligence this is ofton a stumbling point in our household.
