    Maybe using vinegar in the rinse will help neutralize the odor also~~ just a thought

    I agree and that pic says he didn't do it, that it must have been "some other dog" :)

I started noticing an odor, could not figure out where it was coming from. Turns out, the little runt (weighs 6 lbs) had lifted his leg on the end of the bolt-- the fabric is mottled, so it was not noticed even with some scrutiny. I really did not want to wash the whole bolt, so now I'm cutting, and hand washing those strips that were affected as I go.

    I can tell you now, that there is nothing quite like the smell of warm ironed dog pee......and he's my daughter's dog!
    I had a Yorkie that would raise his legs on everything, no matter how many times I put him outside a day, he wasnt fixed and being male I just figured he was marking his territory, and he has ruined a lot even though it was just a dribble....

    Oh how I can relate to this sad sad story..My daughter's dog hikes on everything! Needless to say I follow him around the house. I have 2 dogs myself and everyone behaves UNTIL Bruce shows up....I almost want to make her leave him at home when she comes to visit..but I won't. He's like her child..and he's a doxi and they do that. SHE just has to do his cleaning. =) Its fair ~ right??

    There is some carpet cleaning stuff that I found is great for removing stains and smells. My daughter had a nose bleed on a memory foam pad and her pillow. My hub called the company and asked what to use...We buy this stuff by the gallon these days..you can get it at Lowe's..Its called.. Folex. Took it out instantly.

    I'm an animal lover - really! - but there is no way I'd let a pet do that. Shortly after we got a cat, it started peeing in laundry. After a couple of weeks of not being able to break her of it, no matter what litter we tried or where the box was, she had to go. A friend has a dog who will pee in the house if they don't watch him. No way. Either it gets trained, or it's gone.

    Bad boy belly bands are so easy to make and make living with a leg lifter so much easier. They normally don't lift their leg when they have them on since they don't like being in a wet belly band - if they do lift it goes in the removable/disposable pad in the belly band not on anything else.

    Little Jackson looks like he's scared to death. Just comfort the little boy. Talk to him in a nice voice and tell him he can't pee on MawMaw's fabric no more! Then love on him.

    Take a good look at it to make sure it isn't stained or the color has come out. Check it out under high wattage light. I know my dogs have destroyed clothing like that before... Add some baking soda to the wash also.
