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!
the only thing to do is pee on her laptop...
and eye for an eye, I always say
I suppose selling it to your local chinese takeway isn't an option!
Little pups do learn, I remember ours when she was a pup and she shat in my shoe....you gotta love em really!!?
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.
Me too, I would go for the Chinese take away option
Sorry girl, I can train men -except waynet- do to anything you might want, but puppies are out of my domain ;-)
I was wanting a dog to come traveling but having 2nd thoughts, this my 3rd laptop without owning a dog .....
Thanks Kimberley - you've just given me a much-needed laugh! Sorry about the laptop, but you must admit, it IS funny!
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.
OK, know i am peeing [once again] and i like the idea of peeing on her laptop in a chinese dress
i think i may never forgive her, i would have, but when she looked right at me she knew she was peeing on my words doc's for hubs
i shall give her a capsule
so not cute right now
u all r 2 funny, holy cow
this is a top level security issue
ok i need attention
I am so hubbing her butt off with naked photos of her ha! there!
no stay para!
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 spilled finger nail polish remover on mine and it still works...How about yours?
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?
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!)
I only thought the males like to mark their territory.... maybe she's a he?
Seriously, she just wants your undivided attention. Keep her on your lap (she's a lapdog, right?)
Maybe it's your fault for leaving the laptop in the wrong place, Kimberly?
If this is your third laptop for a year, may be it's a good idea to get laptop insurance.
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.
“FURIOUS! My Dog Peed On My LapTop”
I have several zero-traffic hubs I can print out that he can use.
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.
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.....
Your so right, I laughed when I saw this posted again
So the pee fried the entire laptop and I know have an awesome new mac laptop - thanks puppy

Love feeds on the joy that comes from within. Feelings strengthened by thinking thoughts of kindness, peace, hope and success toward the one that is loved. It needs no invitation, no encouragement, no telling, no touching, no appreciation, no gifts, no looks, no words - written or spoken.It is not...

Even though I've only actually met one of you, I feel that many of you are my friends. I also think we lave a large number of thoughtful, rational, intelligent people on HP. That said, I need to vent, and I'd also like some objectivity. Anyone not interested in my drama, move along - I...
