Perplexed With Peeing

Something funny has been going on with us.  Well, not me, just with Stanley.  It has to do with peeing.


You might know that when me and Stanley pee, we squat.  Mom says it is cuz we got neutered young.  Even though we are "pushing 2" we still squat.  Mom is happy about that cuz we are not always stopping and marking everything.


But we have noticed something.  I don't think it's a big deal but Stanley is getting obsessed with figuring it out!


Yes, it really bugs Stanley that other dogs pee high up on the trees/posts, etc. and our pee is on the ground! Stanley has been trying to lift his leg to pee higher up but it is hard for him cuz he has that knee problem and they go off track when he twists them sideways.  So then he tried to cozy up to the posts/trees and just twist at the hip.  This accomplishes his goal but looks very odd.  After that he decided it would be a good idea to just jump on a bush and mash it onto the ground so he could pee on top of it.  But some of those bushes are a bit "pokey" so he decided that wasn't the solution.  He is still trying to sort it out.  So in the meantime . . .

I was neutered young and took ages to lift my leg, but one day I just did it and my Daddy was so proud of me! Maybe you will do it soon? If not, no worries, it just means that your special and that you have the best peemail that everyone can read!
Love the photos and thought bubbles, so funny!
Love and Licks from your Furiend Frank XxxxX

Wow, that's quite a choice...squat or hike! I sorta like to switch off between the two for variety. Definitely gotta watch for the sticker bushes. BOL Either way the best technique is whatever suits your style.

Mates, squatting ain't just for girls! I, Rory, do a sort of squat too and am proud to do it. Mum says I make a splash wherever I go hehe. I reckon it makes our pee mail more spread out so more mates can read it. Sometimes I slightly raise my leg butt, lets face it, it can take too much effort for me being the relaxed man I am. See ya dudes. Happy squatting! NO WORRIES, and slobber, Rory and Stella

I don't know what this leg lifting thing is about. I squat to pee but sometimes I like to look at it as it comes out and mom laughs at me.

We once had a dog like you two. My husband "helped" him learn to lift his leg by lifting it for him. I am not kidding :) It was hysterical but it didn't really work. One day, our young dog figured it out all by himself.

Taffy said...

LOL! Hope you get it figured out!
