|Phoenix, my six year old Dobe does this very thing once in a very great while. Same story, great dog, never has accidents inside otherwise. With her, she seems to have only done this during a dream, when she is twitching her little face and wiggling her legs. Once she's done it, she jumps up and looks at the bed and then looks at me like she's just mortified! Poor Baby, I never fuss because she knows she wasn't supposed to.Because, it dosen't happen often at all, I just accredited it to her dream. I figured if it was a bad dream, maybe she was frightened in her sleep, or that she was so distracted by the dream that she didn't realize what she did. I just make sure to keep washable dog beds and blankies on the floor for her to sleep in, that way if it happens, I can grab up the bed and throw it in the washer right then. I have always mentioned it to my vet and he didn't seem to be concerned with it, he did say that if it became a regular occurance, like everyday or every other day, then we needed to run tests to check her kidney and bladder functions. Phoenix was a rescue and was in terrible shape when she came to me from the shelter, so, I guess if she was dreaming about her former home, I can't blame her for wetting the bed! I am sending you a PPR and be sure to let us know how it turns out with her, she is beautiful!!!!|
