Hi,
Daisy has always been a clean dog, we have NEVER had issues with her as she was toilet trained when we got her at 2, but last week she peed in the kitche whilst we were out - I put this down to her stressing our whilst we had taken Harvey to the Vet's. Yesterday, however, whilst we were out she went upstairs (we hadn't shut the door properly - normally she isnt allowed upstairs) and she had peed on the landing carpet.
This is SO unlike her, there are 2 things that I am thinking... the obvious is a water infection, but since the 2 instances of peeing in the house were a few days in between and she manages to go all through the night I am not convinced.
The second thing is I'm thinking is terrotorial, Harvey has been getting a little extra attention (as she would see it I think ) in the fact that he is getting eye drops several times a day. Daisy is a VERY fussy dog and when we are putting Harvey's drops in she is trying to get in on the action.
I am wondering if she is just asserting her position maybe?, she is top dog and I wonder if she thinks she is getting pushed out.
I have also started giving them both some denta-stick type chews which take a long time to chew and Harvey & Daisy avoid each other whilst eating these, if they are both chewing they are fine, if one has finished it's a little growly at times, but not with any intent to fight, just a 'back off' type thing.
They also had a growly moment at dinner the other day, whereby Daisy finished 1st and went to Harvey and they growled at each other, it was over in a second with Daisy wandering off. They rarely growl at each other, infact I can't remember when it last happened.
I am wondering maybe whether the peeing thing maybe Daisy just letting everyone know she is still top dog?. maybe asserting herself?.
No other changes have happened and Daisy is still as sweet and fussy as ever.
Do you think she could be jealous?


I will be speaking to the Vet later, but am not totally convinced of a water infection, the other thing that crossed my mind was her age, she will be 9 in May and maybe it was age related.

Any help or advice would be gratefully received.
Thanks and HAPPY EASTER :)

**UPDATE**

Have had no more instance of Daisy peeing in the house so can only assume it was some issue she had, or just 'one of those things'
