So The Basic Problem Is...

...if Biscuit's in the kitchen, even napping quietly on his and Betsy's shared/not shared bed, and I try to sneak into the office to use the computer, he immediately gets up and stands at the kitchen gate and cries his eyes out.  Which is really sort of sweet...but really not conducive to getting blogs posted.


Two funny stories about Biscuit's beds.  First off, he loves to make his bed himself.  Even sitting on the big dog bed next to this bed, he paws and paws and paws until it's "just right".  Then he lays down, checks it out, usually gets up once, sometimes twice, paws it all around again and gets it "just right" and then settles in.  There is nothing to arrange on a covered dog bed ;-).  

The messy makeshift bed under the (I have no idea what this red piece of furniture is called) that he and Betsy both love and fight over is a different story.  It can be pawed and pawed and pawed to really get it "just right".  It is here that I left him to sneak into the office.

Do you remember the story about Lila using her nighttime crate as a litter box?  How she peed on the kitchen floor one time and never did it again?  We never even had to keep towels on the floor. She always ran into the crate.  Or would pee "on command" in the back of the car (with rubber mat and bedding ;-) before we'd go inside.

Biscuit tries to never pee in his crate.  His bed.  When he gets up in the morning (or still the middle of the night :-o), he gulps down his baba and then pees and pees and pees.  I have to think he's holding it as long as he can.  Maybe this is why he doesn't sleep through the night.  Maybe he's not as hungry as just needs to pee.

It sounds like my five minute break from crying is over.  "Hang on Biscuit.  You're alright.  I'm coming."  Sigh...

Ummmmm so where does he pee? On the floor? Could you just rush him outside to pee? Could he be litter box trained? Betsy could help with that I'll bet!!! Gotta love the baby!!

He's spoiled rotten, LOL! And in order to continue to spoil him, I think you need a laptop in the kitchen so as not to disturb his naps :D

Shirley said...

Well- maybe he should get his baba outside and come in after he pees! Of course, weather permitting! Can a sheep be house trained?

Oh man, I'm just loving these Biscuit posts. He and his antics are just beyond cute. I also ask the question: where does he pee? Can you carry him outdoors in the night and he goes on the lawn. Only two years ago I was housetraining my Labrador pup. Tomorrow I have a birthday post for him. I hope you can visit. Baaahs to the cute baby Biscuit. PS How is Maisy?

Perhaps he could be encouraged to use a puppy wee-wee pad? Cleaning a kitchen floor several times a day can't be fun.
With that widdle lambie face, however, it could almost be forgiven.

I want a bisquit! He is adorable and I cannot imagine all the work he is for you in the house. You are a devoted sheep mom :)

Could you try wrapping a diaper around his middle? I think the nice lady at Bless Ewe Sheep Company does that. I think she had 5, that's right FIVE in the house at one time . If you don't follow her on FB, go check out her page. She is one of "us"!

What a sweet little lamby! He has such nice manners and the need for a perfectly made up bed. Just love it.

Sounds like you are enjoying all the sweet lambs. This baby is so adorable. Love your blog.

Everyone must pee...some people and animals have smaller bladders:)

Oh,the trials of being a lambie's mama! Really gets me thinking how patient mama ewes must be with their lambies.

What breed is Biscuit?

The Green Dogs said...

Ah, shouty baby lambs... the memories. Thankfully, my lambing is over and my pets are all big enough for the shed! I'll just stare at the beautiful, silent picture. :)
