Lobo goes to the door, looks out, and then comes by where they're sitting and stares. laugh out loud (She's still in the potty training process.)

I trained my 2 apbt's to ring the bell. You should hear the racket when they see a squirrel! snoopy

I solemnly swear- that I am up to- no good

If Mom is up and around the house I will run to the door and scratch at it. If she's in bed and sleeping in late, I will breathe in her face til she wakes up! shockhappy dance

I stare at them. If that doesn't work, I whine. If I REALLY gotta go, I'll start barking and if they still don't get the hint I will run back and forth from them to the back door!

I stare at them too! Or I run between them and the back door until they let me out.

That's MR.- Momma's Boy to- you!

I will hold it until the cows come home. There is no reason for me to tell them that I have to go, they'll take me out eventually. I like to make them guess. Mom says that I am a camel when it comes to holding my pee. When I have to go #2, I still won't tell them, but I get a little antsy. Oh, and something behind me toots a lot when I have to go real bad. When I hear the toots, I jump up and look behind me to see what the noise was, but nothing is there! shock laugh out loud

They call- me....'Granny- Grump'!

I will sit and stare at them. Then when they ask " do you need to potty?" I will make a dash to the door. If they are in bed, I will go in there and nudge Dad with my nose and then he knows that I have to dog

Bell ringers? What does that mean? Do you have a little bell that they ring when it's time?

Rudy sin- barreras

Chipper - you sound like Rudy! He never so much as looks at me unless he's going to have the squirts, then he paces by the door. He used to get really clingy and shove his head into my hands when he had to go but he's stopped so I just fashioned a schedule of my own to follow.
