We let George have the run of the house all the time. He doesn't even have a crate. I can often make it home for lunch to let him out, but if I can't and he can't wait and leaves me a puddle, at least he's thoughtful enough to leave it in the kitchen where it's easy to clean up. LOL Usually he shows it to me, too -- I'll come home and he'll come say hello and then stare at his puddle until I notice it. His expression is, of course, "Gosh! Look at that! Wonder how that got there?" I think he must spend most of his day sleeping when we're not here because he's certainly wide awake all evening when we are here.
