    JJs that is great that your dog does not have accidents-unfortunately not all dogs can be so lucky. Especially those who have been rescued from abusive or neglectful situations.

    You can include the dogs who are advanced in age in the group as well.

    Tinkerbelle can relate to the problem with the wind and cold.....We shovel part of the backyard for her. She really doesn't like the snow.
    We keep 2 piddle pads under the dining room table for emergency use only. During the winter we go thru 2-3 pads aweek. Other times of the year, 1 a month. I find the piddle pads are much nicer to find a 'present' on than the rug or floor.

    Holy moly are you living here

    :lol:
    I just got out their potty pads seconds ago. I will put them under the table in our dining room. We have a hard wood floor in there. They haven't used them in a long time. They will soon be 2, and momma dog will be 6 I think that is right.
    You animal lovers are the best!!! :thumbup:

    My DH snow blows paths all over our yard for Brewster - almost like a maze. He loves to run through them - so funny to watch. But Brewster weighs about 40 lbs. and loves the snow, so no chance of him blowing away! Hope your wind stops soon.

    No idea on what to use to clean.. would use club soda (lifts stains instantly for cat issues) or vinegar if you want to make sure they dont do it again. As to stopping that from happening I suggest the bathroom at night time with some potty pads if necessary ..I would not want to go out in that weather either so if they are in a small warm place with a blankie to sleep with then no issues. Also crate them at night if you have to. They will not go to the bathroom where they sleep. Then you take them out (yes you go out with them too oh joy!) and dont come back til they go. Solve that problem.

    I feel so bad for little Sunshine and her mom and brother. This wind is 85 mile per hr steady winds...wicked!!!!!!!!!! HELP
    There is a product called Simple Solutions that you can get from any pet supply store. It comes in a spray bottle and it is specifically made for pet stains. You might have to saturate the foam but if you have a wet/dry vac, it should get most of the solution out. Then you can just let it air dry.

    I used it on the areas where my chihuahua peed when she was still little.

    Also, have you thought of giving them a potty box in the house? I have one that I use for my little chihuahua and I use shredded paper. Just put it in a plastic tub.

    I'm happy to hear about that cleaning product. I usually but a waterproof cover on our matresses though, is this something you could do with your's?
