Corrina is a rescue, who, definately has the "whats in it for me" attitude to say the least. She's the love of my life, but we're going on week 3 and im pulling my hair out some days!
Like today. Most days she wakes me up around 7-8 am to go pee. I woke today at 930, asking her if she had to go potty, and she j/ layed there, and went back to sleep. Once i got up, she lazily got up.. It had been raining and still was.. i know bas's dislike rain, but the last time we were in it she semi-tolerated it. Well, we got the harness on, and went outside, but Miss Corrina would not leave the porch. In fact, she peed on it.. so now the front porch that i share with 4 other humans smells like pee… even though i had OBVIOUSLY brought the umbrella out for her!! So what do i do?? Pick her up and place her in the wet grass even though she blatantly hates the rain? i mean i guess.. but i feel so terrible. She's only stubborn, never bad. Unless shes in her puppy mode.. which includes nipping and biting. but she gets ignored when that happnens and it usually ends.
I'm afraid to leave her home today, i have a puppy pad in the bathroom but last time it rained i took her out, she sat in wet grass (it was only spitting at this time) and the minute i brought her back inside she pooped while staring at me!
i'd appreciate any advice, tricks or prayers.. my friend (who originally adopted corrina for her 1yr old basenji, to be his sister) decided corrina was unhappy (which was obviously true) at their house AND was staring to BITE Newbie!! so it was either me or back to the shelter and i couldnt be happier but ive never delt with such a STUBBORN DOG!!! :o
