Last night Ellie got up in the middle of the night to go out out. Not just once or twice , but FIVE TIMES!! Do you have any idea how annoying this is?? (Okay, so those of you with kids are just laughing, but this is not a baby, this is a five year old dog!!...Who is my baby, of course) So, over the period of my seven-hour sleep I had to get up five times. It is normal for her to get up once in the night. I don’t like it, but I am used to it (of course I would love to break her of it…). She usually gets up between three and four. I am thinking we had this over-active evening due to her ear infection. Maybe her meds are making her pee (dear God I hope this isn't it because she is on it for nine more days!!)?? Maybe here ear is bothering her and keeping her up?? Anybody ever had to deal with this and have any suggestions?
Honestly, the most annoying part is that she will only go out for me. She will go out with Nick during the day, but when it comes to night pee, I am the only one for her. She will sit at the end of the bed and chomp(basically saying Get-Up-Get-Up-Get-Up-Get-Up…), and if that does not get me up then she will get on the bed, put her two front paws on my shoulder, and rock back and forth to nudge me awake…I swear to God. It would be really sweet…if it was not 1am, 2:30am, 3:15am, 4:45am and 6:30am. If you have any suggestions or advice, I am all ears!
