Dudley has to Go…He peed on my bed again…:-( Edited to finish story
It is ironic that I am posting this considering the phone call I had the other day. My friend CC has known about the trials we have had with our one dog. During our conversation we discussed Dudley again and I told her how well the kids had been doing in keeping him crated.
Dudley is a Pomeranian. He is a beautiful dog. He has the coloring of a red fox. He just doesn’t get it. He has urinated on my bed twice. He has defecated in my husbands shoes. His other favorite place is the laundry room on the dirty clothes. He has urinated on my books.
You can take him outside on the leash to potty and he will go potty. He will also walk into the house then go potty again.
We were getting ready for bed, lo and behold….Dudley has struck again. He urinated on my $150 burgundy, velvet comforter. Which went through the comforter onto the tempurpedic foam piece that covers the mattress. We have a queen size bed.
He has to go…..I can’t stand this anymore. It is going to break the kids heart. This is their dog. They love him and I am going to be the cruel person in getting rid of the dog.
This breaks my heart because part of me feels like I am being cruel to the kids. Dudley is such a loving puppy (4 years old) but I can’t take having my bed peed on again. I don’t know how I am going to clean the foam covering. I am to the point that I am probably going to have to through it out. I needed that because of the fibromyalgia in my hips. It is so painful to lay down on the regular mattress.
Someone out there please tell me that my kids will not be damaged psychologically over this and hate their mother for the rest of their lives. This has been an ongoing battle for 4 years.
I am going to have my sister pick him up tomorrow and take him out to my mother’s. Dudley is one of her dogs pups. Foxie is so old. Dudley is the only one left that resembles Foxie.
This is so hard to do…….
My BIL came by and picked up Dudley. The kids are crying. Charlie won’t talk to anyone. He’s closed up in his room. Mom suggested emailing the Dogwhiperer and seeing if he had any ideas on what could be done to break Dudley and she would work on him.
They bathed him and played with him until Jeff got here…..We are all crying….It is breaking my heart to see them so upset but I tried and tried………………
Dudley went to my mom’s. My mom cried. She also doesn’t care if a dog pees or poohs all over her house. The kids were fine by the next day. We go out and see him. A week later my son came to me and said he was glad we gave Dudley to Grandma. She really needed him. He was also glad because we had done everything we could think of including consulting with Dog trainers and Pom owners. He even said himself it was a relief not wondering what Dudley had peed on next. All in all it was okay and the kids are fine.
