He's done sooo well! There's a bell on a string on my bedroom door, along with the front door, that he bumps his nose against whenever he has to go to the bathroom. If he doesn't jingle those bells, he'll walk around until he finds a door and patiently will sit infront of it until some one notices.

The last time he had an accident, it was because he had been waiting infront of the door for too long and I had been cleaning and not been paying too close attention to him. that was last Friday, but it was my fault. Other than that, he's been keeping everything inside until he feels and smells the grass beneath his feet. :) I'm so proud of him and myself.. (No more peeps and poops that are resting on my carpet. WOOHOO!)

Oooh Hank-a-licious deserves a special treat while lying on his back, getting a long belly rub, followed by a new squeaky toy!! Just wait until he starts ringing the bell because it's sunny, there's a favorable breeze, the neighbor cat is outside, the birds are chirping, is that the UPS man? ;)

Hank Good For You -- you are soooo smart and you are young too so that must mean you are really smart!!
I can't use bells coz of my cat Cairo -- he would just ring those bells and drive us nuts -- silly boy. So I just sit an paw the door.
We have a funny situation here -- well sometimes not so funny. Cairo has learned how to open the patio door screens and let himself out. (fox food!!!!) So.. Dad put locks on the inside and outside of each door....but haff the time someone is either locked in the house or out of the house --- my huminz are always looking for a door. ha ha -- too bad they can't pee on the grass like us!!! Outhouse anyone?????

Or in Molly's case, to go sniff the grill again. "Momma, Momma, I gotta pee. Haha no I don't, but the grill smells like hamburgers!"

Anyway, great job Hank!!! You're the man! :D

I found the bells we used for Virga at WalMart in the pet section. They are specifically made for potty training dogs. They've got a loop that goes over the door knob and there three bells on it. It wasn't that expensive either I don't think.

Way to go, Hank! You are one smart fella!

I loved the bells for Yogi. As he got older, he liked to ring them just because though! If I was busy cleaning or whatever and he was bored, the bells would ring! Kind of funny in a way.

We looked all over town for a silly bell!! We ended up using a bird bell tied up with Christmas Ribbon! ;). Now they sell "poochie bells" at our local pet stores. Funny you mention sniffing the grill. I recently caught PB licking the BBQ tongs that hang off the grill. Note to self: Don't forget to wash the tongs!!!!
