Angry Help! My dog has started pooping in the house..all the time!

First, some background info.
I have a 10 year old Boston Terrier named Milly. I have had her since she was 6 weeks old and she has always been a complete joy. She was quick to potty train (I always crate train my dogs) and has never been one to have accidents in the house. So far, so good.

So a couple of months ago, Milly got a really bad eye infection and, long story short, we ended up making the decision to remove her eye. The doctor assured us that she would bounce back quickly, and she did. Within days she was back to her old self and was totally fine.

Milly and her sister (a boxer named Tacoma), as stated before, were both crate trained. They are out of their crates all day while we are at work, but they both sleep in their crates at night. They are the type of pups that, if they get tired, will go lay in their crates. About two weeks after Milly's surgery, she started pooping in her crate every night. She gets enough walks, she goes potty appropriately every time, she is not being over fed. But every morning, we wake up to a mess. Its not loose stools, its regular, solid poop.

At first I thought something was wrong. She was thoroughly checked by the vet who assured us that she is fine. But still, pooping in the kennell continues. Now she is upping her game. A couple of days ago, I was sitting in the recliner in the living room, and right in front of me, she pooped and pissed right in the living room.

I have had it and I dont know what to do, so I am reaching out to you guys. As stated earlier, she has been checked by the vet, she is getting plenty of walks, she is not being over fed. She is not incontinent. I cannot help but feel that she is doing this on purpose for some reason...but why?

Any ideas? How can I correct this?? HELP!!

If your Vet can find nothing physically wrong with her, looks like you are back to housetraining 101. If she is food driven, start making worth her while to pee and poop outside, with treats and rewards when she does. Pee and or poop inside = nothing, pee or poop outside = lots of praise and treats.
