She eats her treats and keeps looking at us with a cocked head and a very blank expression. When there is any tail wagging, it's not much. She usually just keeps it stuck straight out like normal.A UTI would not make her hesitate to go potty outside. That problem seems to me to be more connected with her confusion. It MAY be that you are actually making too much of a fuss over her when she pees outside... Is it possible this could be a little overwhelming to her? You'd have to look at her body language and see what her reaction is to all the fuss. Is she jumping around happily, with tail wagging?... or sort of crouching with her tail tucked looking overwhelmed? I really can't guess from here, but its something you could consider as you try to decode her brain! LOL!
She definitely doesn't get anywhere near as excited as when we're working on training obedience commands. Her little body starts wiggling everywhere.
