Ollie has finally lifted his leg to pee
He is over 2 years old and always squatted like a girl, he's not shown any inclination tolift that leg. However over the park he was showing off to a bitch, you know strutting around : when he found a fallen branch and started to wee and the leg went up. SU & I didn't believe what we saw, then further round he did it again. He's done it several times since... mainly he stills pees like a girl but sometimes when we're out that leg goes up, so casual, like he's been doing it that way all his life!
Never thought I'd feel so proud of a three legged wee!!
My 2 11 yr olds have always pee'd like girlies- very occasionally they'll cock their legs but for the most part they squat- does this have anything to do with being neutured or are they just idle?
Give Ollie a pat on the head from us for his "big boy" achievement-
"some days you are the dog, some days you are the tree!"

Thanks, I keep thinking he must be a "big-boy" now.. all grown up.
I wondered whether having him neutered had affected his wee-ing preference too Or maybe because he doesn't have the daily influence of an older male, to show him the ropes, so to speak. Of course it's very possible he is just lazy!
Doesn't any one else have any suggestions?
BFW Kate your labs are gorgeous, they certainly don't look 11 years.
It took Skippy several years to start to lift his leg, and at first it was just on walks and he would kind of lean it up against a clump of grass. Now he defintiley is a "leg-hiker) (7 years old), but he never marks things that aren't part of nature (doesn't do car wheels, buildings, metal, etc)
