About two months ago my husband and I rescued Cecil from the humane society. He is about two years old and was picked up as a stray. We all bonded immediatly, Cecil is a wonderfully loving dog, we love to cuddle, we have some issues with walking him--it's not uncommon to get the old who's walking who, comment from our neighbors--he seemed to be house broken--ussually he nudges me when he wants out. He is great except for one thing--he has peed on the bed numerous times, and I can't help but take it personally. I've read many a dog training book that says dogs are not spiteful, but everytime it happens it is on a day where either my husband and I are busy and we figure he feels neglected or after he has been punished for stealing food off the counter or other such offenses. He has also peed on my purse once. I don't even know where to start when it comes to dealing with this. Some friends have actually suggested we take him back to the shelter, which is not an option as far as I am concerned. Does anyone have any advice??
