Ask Dog Lady—Spring 2015

Dear Dog Lady, I have a Maltese/Pomeranian mix. I brought her home at five-weeks-old and had her in a playpen. She weighed one and one-third pounds. I took her out every 15 minutes when I brought her home and I kept increasing the time. She learned to ring the bell to go out from the cat who does this to go out. The problem is the dog does not always go out. She has ruined my white carpet by choosing on occasion to go in the house. She is now four years old and I am ready to give her away if she does not stop soiling indoors. Help.—Shirley, Peoria, IL more
