Oh perfect! Thanks, Theresa!  I wouldn't have thought that the bell might get squished.  We haven't been treating too much with Kaycee, but giving her tons of praise and saying "good girl!" while she's going outside.  I try just to clean up the mess and move on, but I know there's been a couple times I'm grumbling under my breath while I'm cleaning. LOL  Usually we do take her water away at 8, unless it's still hot in the house.  We don't have AC or central air so a few times this past week the house was still at 80 at 9pm.  Don't want her to get dehydrated.

I will try to remember my bell from home.  We don't use it anymore and you could come by my office and meet B & C and pick it up.  :yes:

That is what I did . I took off the bow and just have the 3 bells dangling .

I thought of that but I didn't have anything with a bell in it because the kids were driving us mad. They'd literally play with it all day every day from the day we put up the decorations to the day we took them down. LOL  So anything that made noise was tossed!

I know! I'm hoping now that the twins are 2, they'll leave the dog's bell alone and we can start bell training. But I'm not going to hold my breath either. :boing:

 Well, If they ring the bell, take them out too potty.  :laugh4: :laugh4:

   Only joking. But it surley would be funny if you did it once all serious like when someone was watching. Perhaps not a client however.  :laugh4:

LOL  I like that idea!  I've often joked to my hubby that Kaycee will be better "trained" than our kids are.  Not sure if the clients would appreciate the joke or not, but my current ones would probably get a kick out of it.  We're still working on the twins not climbing in and sleeping in Kaycee's crate.

I completely agree with the butt signal, but I call it the bulging butt. Just a bit ago I was on the phone w/ my dad and Sally had been playing. I looked over, and sure enough-bulging butt! ALERT! ALERT! So, I took her right out and she actually went out IN THE RAIN to poop....YEA!!

Oh yeah!! Good girl Sally!! Kaycee won't step paw on the wet grass, unless I go first.  So when it's pouring out, yeah, I'm right there with her.  I tried to bring an umbrella out with me, but then she just hides under it with me. lol  So I guess she's of the "if it's good enough for me, it's good enough for you" mentality.
