    Ah! So there is a chance she might be doing this to impress your son? In that case I understand why you are feeling this way, I feel the same way about giving that dog away, my mom too. What I fear most is that he ends up roaming the streets. People nowadays no longer have a strong sense of responsibility and patience, specially with animals.

    I am out today. I have left everything squeaky clean and I am still wondering how they are doing. It's a test for ginger. I left an area for her to do her business.I have to pray she does good. I see a little improvement in her habits. What's wonderful is that the older dogs are still not doing anything until I get in.

    God, I hope it continues that way! I'd hate to hear your other dogs do the same, but I doubt they will :) They're already used to doing it outside, but I hope your ginger learns to do it outside soon too. By the way, have you made your mind? Have you heard from that girl who was willing to take ginger?

    I am not happy today. Something went very wrong and someone followed her lead. I had to spend all morning cleaning:(. I feel it's Zola. I know it's Zola,. She ran when I called her so that is her give away sign. I take some of the blame though. I fed them out of schedule:).

    Oh no! I hope it doesn't happen tomorrow. You had your dogs so well trained, it'd not be fair if all of a sudden they started following her lead. Actually she should be the one following their lead, because they are more than just one.

    That's what has me. I thought they would be in control. Not so. I don't even know what to say about Ginger. I just have to be patient like Claudine and suggested some time back. I am not going to tell you about this morning. Thankfully it was just Ginger AGAIN. I will be here at home for a good part of the day so I know she's be okay has I will time and watch her. I think I am going back to the drawing board with her. Back to the days of searching the net and finding what I hope will CONSISTENTLY work for Ginger. My biggest worry is if the others will go way off base.

    I honestly think that if Ginger doesn't start following the good example of the others... well, the others might actually start following her bad example :( I've seen it happen. I truly hope it doesn't happen in this case. Have you tried the lemon vinegar trick? It works with most dogs.
