Potty Problems ARGH

So, Harriet is nearly 10 months old, and we thought, housebroken. The last two mornings, however, the alarm goes off, we (Harriet and whoever drew the short, cold straw that morning) get out of bed to take her out (we don't have a fenced yard, so we have to actually take her out), she has gotten out of bed when we did, and went to the dining room and peed on the rug. We are literally 3 steps behind her. She does it so fast we don't see her do it. Does anyone have advice for me to stop this?

She's had urinary tract infections in the past, so we've had a rocky road to housebreaking, but she's not exhibiting any of the signs of one of those right now.

We clean that rug with enzyme cleaner, would it be a waste of my time to run a spot bot over it?

Frustrated! :confused:

Start as if she were a puppy and take her out ,say every 20 min or so.Adjust the time to fit the need,if 20 min is too long to wait take her out every 10-15 min. Just pretend she has no training at all. When you put her leash on to take her out say something like,"Do you have to go out"? I've always used,"Do you have to go potty"? Yeah, it is a pain in the butt but what choice do you have?
