    Looks like the key board and mouse pad are toast!  Expected that.

    But now they warned me the hard drive has yet to be fixable.

    I have out my cute puppy in solitaire and don't know what her release date will be.

    My lesson?  Back up my work [duh] or not get a dog?

    When I buy my third laptop for this year [looks like]  how do I deal with the shock and understanding it is not her fault?

    WRONG!  she absolutely looked me straight in the face hopped up squatted and peed.  By the time I could lift her, too late.

    She is with me constantly.  She won't leave my side.  I really believe she was upset about me working all the time, and spending less time, actually very little time with her, only with my lapTop, do they think to this degree, or did she not even know, and was just being bad

    surely, someone must know!

    Please Help!

      LOL Kimberly, (sorry), but do you have household insurance as you could probably claim on it for this? Just say something got spilt on the laptop!

    That is terrible.

    Only condolence I can give is that the laptop is replaceable.

    The unconditional love of a dog is priceless.

    Does she ever pee on anything else in the house? Maybe more potty training if so...

    If not it could be marking. She's trying to get the lap top as her own. Make a sharp high sound when she goes to do it next time. This should prevent her from peeing and you can quickly let her outside.

    Hope this helps

    In some places they eat dog - but then it probably isn't that serious. It is only money! Dogs are warm and cuddly. Not sure what I would do.

    That's terrible but still funny, sounds like she is jealous of the laptop and thinks this is a way of getting your attention away from it and onto her.

    Next time don't leave it down where she can get to it.

    We have two felines and I have to always make sure my laptop is closed and out of reach as she has often tried to sit on it and I certainly don't want cat piss toasting my laptop. My suggestion to you, don't let your doggy anywhere near your computer. Good luck.

    Gnerally dogs don't pee because they are trying to annoy you, they pee because they want to pee.  The trick is not to have a puppy and a keyboard on the same surface.

    Is the puppy diabetic? Normal pee wouldn't do any harm if you'd shut the comp down straight away and removed its battery. But sugary pee or drinks would short out the circuitry.

    I'm sorry, Kimberly, but this is too funny.
    The only one of my cats who has ever peed on my compter was Penny -- the otherwise little angel of the group. Go figure.

    Have you gotten out your hairdryer?

    mistyhorizon2003posted 13 years ago

    Seriously now, puppies usually do things like this to get attention. If you are paying too much attention to anything other than the puppy there is a good chance the puppy will try to overtake the attention by peeing on the item in question, whether it is your new baby or the duvet you are putting a clean cover back on. The answer, easy, when you are doing such tasks place the puppy in the puppy crate until you are done, and then you can give said puppy the appropriate amount of attention after. Remember, to a puppy any form of attention is great, negative or positive, so keep the puppy away from anything that may cause it to aim for attention that you will not want to administer, i.e. being cross it has behaved in a manner you would prefer it no to.

    Also, a very good tip to keep in mind is that you should ignore bad behaviour (including 'accidents' in the home), but praise good behaviour hugely, be it peeing outside or doing as the puppy is told. This really works and is the best modern day method for rearing young puppies to be great household pets.

    Got to love dogs for that! I know that my puppies used to do that all the time, but once they got potty trained it was no longer an issue! Just have to be patient with them.

    ha ha ha Kimberly (not that I think it's that funny, but the image of it all!)  lol


    I only thought the males like to mark their territory.... maybe she's a he?  lol

    Seriously, she just wants your undivided attention.  Keep her on your lap (she's a lapdog, right?)

    Definitely get laptop insurance. 
    As for your puppy, dogs are rarely bad for the sake of being bad.  Have you tried making the laptop a good thing to her?  Maybe you could try holding her on your lap, or use the laptop on the couch and let her sit next to you (if she is allowed on the couch that is), or sit on the floor while you work.  Don't expect to get much work done in the beginning.  Pay more attention to her than the computer - pet her, praise her, and so on.  But make sure you look like you're working some of the time.
    You could also try giving her delicious and fun toys or bones ONLY when you are working so that she can keep you company but won't be so bored, or spend so much time thinking about how you're not paying attention to her.
    And by giving them to her only when you are working, work - and the laptop - become a positive thing to her.  However you go about it, that would be my goal - making her see the laptop as a neutral or positive thing.
    To be on the safe side, I'd store your laptop on top of a bookshelf or something.

    My son's cat acts out that way whenever he has a female in his room. She will pee wherever the female was sitting, and she's done it many many times.

    She has no problem with his male friends, just the female ones. This is the only time she fails to use the litterbox. She's okay if the females don't go in his room.

    And like your dog, Kimberly, this cat will glare at my son while she makes her point.

    I tried using this to my advantage, but with little sisters around I could understand his innocent need for privacy, most of his female visitors really are just friends. So, we ended up putting plastic liners on his mattress and chair cushion, and throwing out the ruined ottoman.

    I don't believe animals don't have minds, thoughts, and emotions.

    I had a border Collie Mix that did that to me.  My laptop at the time was on the way out, he just made everything worse.  I remember how the keyboard was unusable after that.  As a rule this dog never got near me when I was on laptop on bed.  After that, I made sure he never came near me when I was on laptop.

    After that, I also made sure I got the extra laptop insurance to cover accidents like that.  smile

    Dogs sometimes are jealous of things we often spend most of our time, when my dog Peso was less than a year old, all the things the he sees when I am leaving the house for work, he started to ruin one by one.... example getting my signature sunglass from my bag and when I found it was completely ruined. your puppy  maybe was trying to get your attention... hope you have more patience....though I cannot blame Laptop is still a laptop.....
