I have the cutest little dog in the world and I absolutely adore her. She is so great. Lately she has been getting up SEVERAL times in the night and wanting to be let outside. Now see I don't have kids and Millie has been out of her puppy phase for some time now so I did not sign up for this. I have been really bothered. A little fact about me is that I love my sleep so when my dog has been waking me up four to five times a night to go outside... well lets just say I have been not so happy. I mean I am sure it is understandable (as annoying as it is) when you have to get up because of a child.... but a almost two year old DOG is unacceptable. And the thing that gets me the most is it is not even because she has to pee... it is to get her ball and just roam around the backyard. So if anyone has any great hints as to how to break this habit let me know. I am quite sick of the licks in the middle of the night on my face just to go out for a stroll at FOUR o'clock in the morning. Sorry had to vent!
