    Right now, we're still going with a water bowl outside of her crate that's in the kitchen. We're still working on the house breaking side of things. She's pretty much been making it from about 10:30ish at night until 6:30 in the morning from day one with the occasional accident early on. Now she's easily making it from 7:30 until noonish without an accident as I've been coming home at lunch to give her a break. The afternoon stretch from noonish until 5ish seems to be the troublesome part and she has an accident about 2/3 of the time. But she has access to her water at breakfast, my lunch trip home, and throughout the evening. Until we get consistent with the afternoon stretch, I don't want to take the chance of going backwards. But we're working on it. She's been better in the afternoons this week with a clean crate on Monday and Tuesday, but an accident today....it's those baby steps.

    Sounds like she's doing great. I wish would have worked closer to home to be able to let Wilson and Emma out when they were potty training. It would have save me a ton laundry and clean up. Wilson was so easy on the potty training, Emma took just after 6 months. So glad that phase is over now. She's still crated but hopefully in a few months she'll be able to join the boys.
