|The number one sign that a dog has a urinary tract or bladder infection is suddenly urinating indoors, often in spots like the bed. They are in pain when urinating with an active infection sometimes, especially male dogs, so that's part of the reason why they go in places like your bed or where you might sit on the couch.
They have no other way of telling you that something is wrong, they know it shouldn't hurt when they pee every time. Also, bladder and urinary tract infections make it very hard for them to hold it and holding it only makes the condition worsen. So peeing in inappropriate places may start happening more often.
Please take your pup to the vet and have possible UTI or bladder infection ruled out. It's also a pretty common condition for Cookie's breed (it is in many breeds) and it's fairly easy to treat. If your pup doesn't have an infection, and the vet rules out other possible medical causes, then you know it's a behavioral issue and you can tackle the problem from that angle. I hope Cookie's back to normal soon.
