I don't know what's up with Trixie-dog lately, perhaps she's trying to tell us something. Whatever it is she best get it resolved and resolved quickly as patients are running might thin with all of the two-legged occupants of the house.
Here she is taking a load. Not only is she performing this task on the pool deck but also smack dab in front of the gate, why?! I watched her march straight to that spot, squat and go.
She's also done similar but in the house. On the rug. In the front foyer of all places and in the kitchen. In front of the back slider.
