Oh, My! The Toilet Engineer Strikes Again! – Conversations with Stella and Miss Sweetie


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. It has happened again.

Me:  I am so sorry. I was detained outside.

Stella:  And in your absence, Miss Sweetie decided that she could not wait and she…constructed her own toilet. Appalling.

Me:  Actually, I find it remarkable.

Stella:  What if I started constructing my own toilet? Would that be remarkable?

Me:  Well…yeah. Okay. So, Miss Sweetie used her food bowl as a toilet.

Stella:  Gross. Yuck. Horrible.

Me:  It’s not the first time that she has done something like this.

Stella:  I know! It doesn’t make it less appalling.

Me:  I am cleaning and sterilizing it. It’s not something I want to do.

Stella:  You agree. It’s…yuck!

Me:  Yeah but think about this. She…deposited the…refuse… all in one place. She is very specific.

Stella:  Next time she needs to be specific and go outside.

Me:  I am not usually distracted during bathroom time. Today was different.

Stella:  Don’t let it happen again.

Miss Sweetie:  Lady Human, I am so sorry. I couldn’t wait any longer.


Me:  That’s all right, Sweetie. I understand. I appreciate that you…contained it.

Miss Sweetie:  I did my best.

Me:  You made it a lot easier to clean up. Just understand. When I go outside, I am not going to stay out there forever.

Miss Sweetie:  In bathroom matters, please define ‘forever’.

    1. She has perfect aim. Rewarding her may be a problem. I’m not sure I want her taking that as a positive. She responds to treat training VERY quickly. The problem is that if I have to leave the room when she happens to need to “go out”, she instantly gives up as in, “Uh-oh. The human has left and will never come back. Might as well go here and now.”
