This has GOT to stop!

She is getting so big so fast . I was looking at pictures from when we got her a little over a month ago and she was so tiny. She's more than twice that size now. Where can I find a growth stunter?

Ok now onto the real question. She has gotten so much better at potty training. She rings the bells almost every time she has to pee and has drastically cut back on the number of accidents she has. Sometimes she rings the bells just for the fun of it, it gets annoying sometimes since we just got back inside. Anyways, she however for some reason HATES to poop outside. We will take her out and wait and wait and wait. After she pee's all she wants to do is dig, eat the grass or hop around and chase the rain drops. Then without warning she will poop inside. She doesn't sniff around or anything. Just squats right in front of you and goes. Even though we have her on a pretty set schedule as far as feeding and sleeping go, her pooping has pretty much no schedule. I thought she started to get on one, but then that went out the window. She usually goes first thing in the morning, and I noticed about half hour before bed....sometimes. Other than that, no nothing. She didn't go last night. This morning she went 3 times (in the house) in a matter of a couple hours. Then went almost right after dinner which pretty much never happens for her. We give her treats for going outside, praise her a LOT. What do I do?
Another thing, she tends to walk and pee. She will squat and continue walking while she is going. When she starts to go in the house and I try to stop her to take her outside, she keeps going and walking towards the door at the same time. So rather than a puddle to clean up, I have a line of pee across my living room carpet.

Any suggestions?

Carpet is so tough to keep the smells out. She probably still smells it so that could be one cause. I remember though the same thing with Rose and it was close to 5 months that she had no accidents. Yup, it is frustrating. She used to do the same thing - so excited to be outside and play that she completely forgot she had to go; the moment she was back inside and calmed herself she would try to go. What we did was take her out to one spot for #1 and take her to another spot for #2. If I knew she was due for a #2 I would go to that spot and simply wait her out. Brrrr - now with the cold weather it will be tougher on you to do that. Don't mean to laugh but that must be funny to see her walking and peeing at the same time - I never seen that before.
Rose also used to trick us with more that one poo about 5 minutes apart. It is part of their tummies growing and also part of them rather playing than doing their business.

Between her and our 2 cats we are going to have to replace the carpet completely anyways . We have even been using the natures miracle, doesn't work. It will get some or most of the smell out, but apparently not all of it because they keep going and going.

My mom always told me that smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee will stunt my growth. Maybe that would work

This is what I would do- first get a crate if you don't have one. Take her outside and tell her to go 'potty.' If she goes, great! Reward her! If not, bring her inside and put her in the crate for 5 minutes. Then, repeat until she goes outside.

As Rainheart said take her out on the leash if she goes praise her and reward her. If she doesn't go bring her inside and put her in the crate. Wait 5 minutes and try again. Repeat until she has gone. This may take some time for her to understand exactly what you expect of her.

As long as you are sure she doesn't have a UTI you just need to take her out more often during the day when she is more active. At 3 months sometimes they still need to go out every 30 to 45 minutes while they are playing and active. Even though they are smart and will let you know by ringing the bell at this early age it is still up to you to have a schedule so that she won't fail. Every time she pee's in the house it helps to set in bad habits. And makes all the work you have done to that point be set back some. At 3 months she has only been on this earth for about 90 days. That is so very young to make them responsible for telling you they have to potty. Put her on a schedule and adjust it if needed, even though she is smart and she is telling you some or most of the time, you be the adult/responsible one so those good habits really have time to set in.
