A victory! One step at a time...
I had a little victory with Lilly tonight. I'm working on a pretty strict crate/potty schedule to get her housebroken to the outside instead of puppy pads, and I know the weather outside can sometimes be a hindrance. Well, tonight when I took her out for her last potty before we went to bed, it was snowing. I was thinking 'great, this is gonna take forever. She's not going to want to go while it's snowing.' But.... she did! It took a couple times of me telling her to go potty, but she did it! We were still out there for less than a couple minutes.... but she sniffed out a potty spot and went while it was snowing! I know I've still got a looooong way to go before she's housebroken, but this has got to be a step in the right direction... Right? I'm so proud of my girl!

Yikes! Snow? Seriously, I'm happy for you! We only had about an inch of snow the first winter we had Kacee!

We didn't have any "snow" hindrance with ours, but I always have to shovel a path to the yard when it does snow.
I have always noticed that they "go" much quicker when it snows! No more 15 minutes while Houston sniffs everything. He's out and in, in a flash!

I'd like to add Zach to a victory also. He finally did his pee and poop outside and so far for two days there were no accidents in the house. We've been trying to housebreak him for a month now and he finally caught on.
