I am sixteen and live with my parents, two other siblings, and our two dogs. Our dog LUCY whom we have had for a longer period of time considers herself the alpha of the pack and also appoints herself as house security, she is well behaved. The only problem with her is that she occasionally will bite unfamiliar males and very rarely females. I think it is because she senses that the person is not fond of dogs, or maybe is an intruder? These are just assumptions, but lucy is not much of the problem. The problem is with our youngest dog Linus. Linus is a 5 year old male Coton De Tulear (rare breed). Every since we had picked him out at the breeders and brought him home with us I have appointed himself as his new Mommy. I am usually the one to let him outside, to fill his food dish, to take him for walks, and he sleeps with me. I can tell he is very attached, my mom tells me he looks in my room when I am not home. A lot of the time I will sit in my room working on homework or watching tv with the door shut and if he senses that I am in there he will sit at my door. Sometimes he whines to be let in and sometimes he just sits there, there have been times when I open my door and he is just sitting there and didnt even make a sound. He treats my room as his domain, he even has his own side of the bed yet he tends to sleep on my head. Sometimes while he is sleep on his back he will start to make girlish woofs, and I look at him to see if he is sleeping and he always is. It is very weird and hard to explain, there is no pattern to when he has these little "puppy dreams". About a year or two ago he started to pee in my bed, and it is right where I sleep. He doesnt pee on my pill he pees right about where my neck and shoulders would lay. I have never caught him in the act and I usually dont tend to notice the urination until I layed down. It is very irritating when I lay down to go to bed and I smell a strong urine smell, and so I have to go wash my sheets. Sometimes I have him smell it and I tell him no. There has only been one or two times where I have noticed the urine while it is still wet, most other times I notice it after it has dried. My dog, Linus, can sense when I notice that he has urinated on my bed and starts to become scared. A lot of the times he will be on his pillow next to mine when I notice the smell. Sometimes I will verbally ask him if has peed on bed and starts to shake out of control and will not look me in the eye. The only everytime he shakes from hearing a word, is the word Boom, I think he doesnt like it because it reminds him of fireworks which he hates. I have noticed no pattern to when the peeing takes place, I have never caught him in the act. I don't know what to do, I even bought the poor thing a doogy diaper to wear to bed. Someone please help!!
