12 year old pekepoo going in the house

My dog is going in the house. It seemed to start shortly after her 16 year old brother was put down. She knew him from day one. I give her lots of attention. She is put out several times a day. At my wit's end. Is this her way of grieving?

I would take her to the vet and get a urinalysis done and some bloodwork. After medical problems are ruled out, you basically have to re-potty train her. I've never heard of another animal urinating or defecating inside the house as a way to cope with grieving. I've only experienced dogs/cats going off of food, becoming lethargic and depressed, or crying out in search of the lost one.

Could be re-establishing marking territory as everything is this pekepoos now. Dogs do regress with things like this if theyre stressed, & greiving can equal stress.
