She is an absolute doll!
I also never thought that you were a bad dog owner, at all! you sounded at the end of your leash and exasperated. We all live and learn, and one can never say they know all there is to know.
I was actually thinking of you this morning at 5:45am, when Sparky came to bug me to get up and I just sent him to bed again, and he went and peed all over the floor in the kitchen.. LOL
I was going to say Baddd ... baddd...and then I stopped and said to meself - BAD JENNIE! LOL
You will do good to get her checked, just in case. UTI's are a nasty thing to have, and if you can help it - why not? Better be safe than sorry.
