    Unhappy Mojo is now a outside dog.

    It's his own bloody fault.

    I've fought this battle for months now. My better half wanted him out ages ago.

    I would wake up at least twice a night to let him out ....but Nooooo that wasnt good enough.

    Peeing twice against our brand new timber table that cost a arm and a leg was bad enough. I thought i had convinced the wife to forgive him. She does forgive ...but never forgets. So when he decided to take a dump in the spare room one night he sealed his fate. If i had of seen it i would have cleaned it up and told no one.

    But the cheeky goof didnt do just any old dump. He jumped up on all the clean washing that was on the spare bed waiting to be folded.

    So thats it. Nothing i could say or do could save him ....... he's outside catching Zzzz's with the 'Brindle Bastard'.

    Buggered if i know why he suddenly had a run of accidents because we still got up everynight for a dunny break.

    I try to sneak him back in but as soon as Home and away finishes my wife turns human again and busts us. I cant do much more for the goof without risking sleeping outside myself.

    Aww poor Mojo

    Is this totally outside or just sleeping outside?

    One of my cats went through a phase (after being totally litter trained for 2 years) where she regularly pooped in the office... I honestly don't know what got into her, but mum refused to let her in for longer than 10 mins at a time for a while there... she's fine now though, hasn't done it for ages!

    I would try to figure out what the reason is......stress? Or is he unwell.

    We have usually had a reason in our lot when something like this happens.

    Who left the door to the spare room open? That's just asking for trouble. Tho what my dog usually does is chew up my shoes. Usually she nicks an old one that is wedged under the rocking chair to prevent tail squishing but that's besides the point.

    In my spare room is all the storage stuff like the roo jerky special training treat. I am so not leaving that door open but she does sit and "indicate" very politely when I do. Nobody is perfect.

    Did you put vicks vapour rub on the table leg?

    And when it comes to marking territory - your dog is probably in competition with your missus. Maybe she should be in charge of when he gets his dinner for a week or so. She dumped in the spare room first by putting that pile of washing there. And by the way - what washing powder / softener does she use - maybe it's just a bit too much ammonia / bleach? Must be marked over.

    You could maybe spray the sheets with a mist of lavender oil (1/4 teaspoon to 500mls water) - that's supposed to be a dog repelling smell or at least discourage repeat marking (eg good to finish off the mess cleanup with a bit of this spray).

    Actual lavender flowers are supposed to be dog (and human) calming. They do smell quite different to the oil.

    And one time I pet sat for my cousins and both the cat and the dog came and poop / peed in my room. Just to let me know exactly what they thought about being left behind with me. Sigh. They still sponged walks and pats off me too but I kept my door shut. Very shut.

    I have noticed this curious phenomenon elsewhere, my brother also seems to have lost his "mojo" after getting married also.



    Stay single Reyzor, look what could happen!!!!!!
    I've also noticed at dinner time my plate doesnt get put at the head of the table anymore ......and i'm making my own lunches now LOL. It's too late for Rey now too. He may aswell be hitched.

    Newfsie, i cant see anything wrong with him and we have had a check up at the vets recently with his booster shots and he was given the all clear. I dont think he's stressed either. He's the most relaxed dog i've ever owned. I will keep a eye on him though.

    What washing powder ? Hmmm......its white powdery stuff .....does that narrow it down ?
    The amount of money we spent on this table (thousands) ......i'd be a dead man if i rubbed anything on it !!! I left the door open so i tried to take the blame but she's so angry with him it didnt make much diffrence Hya.

    I think whats done is done now. He seems to be handling it ok. I'll keep trying to sneek him in though.

    Hmm. The table I have is a 1920s cast off that was left behind at a house we lived in as kids when the people who were living there moved somewhere smaller. Anywhere would be smaller than that place was. Didn't cost me anything except moving fees.

    I can't imagine paying thousands for a table or any other bit of furniture. I have heaps of cast offs that probably qualify as antiques. But not very expensive ones (or my uncle would have them). Your wife must be related to Paul Keating (fan of Thai Teak tables).

    I'd still try a bit of vicks vapour rub somewhere wife wouldn't see it. Just to see if it stains. Or eucalyptus oil (a hint of this - no more - on a rag). But you need to reapply daily for it to be effective.

    Otherwise - I guess there is always the umbilical method - ie when he comes inside - he's on a lead that is attached to you.

    Is the white powdery stuff in a box or in a sort of plastic cylinder. If it's in the plastic cylinder (eg napisan) that could be what is causing your problems. I don't have any problems with clothes cleaned with omo. Clothes that are still dirty however - are at risk of becoming chew toys.

    LOL ...theres a story to our ridiculously priced table. It all started whith me drunk as a skunk night shopping in Bali and i bought the coolest painting thats HUGE !!.....got it for $140 after i batered like a champion. Old mate wanted $300.

    Where i wanted to put it meant we had to ditch a bookshelf and a fishtank so we bought a ridiculously priced buffet to go underneath it. So then the wife's worried we wouldnt be able to match a table to its timber finish down the track so we ended up buying a freaking dining table .....and chairs...to go with it all.

    So after all my chest beating about how good at batering i am .....$140 turned into nearly $4000. I never thought i'd see the day we spent that much on furniture either. Happy wife, happy life .....empty wallet.

    If we do manage to sneak back in for a night or 2 i'll try some vicks on the back of a leg. Thanks for the tips Hyacinth.

    Hi hear you Mojo. my wife has made several empty threats to haul the beasts to sleep outside at night but I think she totally forgets it all when Bruno snuggles up to her on the couch. Hard to resist those big brown staffy eyes. But I totally understand the need to keep the domestic bliss ticking along.
    I don't see it as the end of the world for you or Mojo - heaps of dogs sleep outside and spend the rest of the day coming and going as they please. Also, its pretty hard to defend old poochie if he is crapping and pissing all over the house.
    My old staffy years ago was happy sometimes to sleep in a little hallowed out nest of gravel in the backyard. Made me laugh because he mostly slept in bed with me (I was single then....) but he would occasionally decided he needed his own space and take off in the middle of the night to find a more uncomfortable place to sleep. I think he was guarding the crap load of bones he had buried out there - sort of like Sopranos,

    Anyway, good luck mate. i am sure poochie will still be happy as - he just has different sleeping arrangements.

    I know. COZ HE'S A MASTIFF, and they are sick buggers.

    I remember reading up on them. And saw two references to sudden unexplained house pee/poo.

    Wonder how the brindle bastard likes sharing his bedroom though?

    Now they can both fart, without having to leave the bedroom.
    Your farts from however, will be caught out for sure.
    Best start taking charcoal tabs you once tried on your dog.
