    Question Licking her pee up, Sally

    I have more of a curious question really. Sally has occassional accidents in the house since she was never housed trained. Most of you know that she's our rescue and was overbred and tossed in a shelter. Anyhoots, there's been about 3 times that I caught her and she was licking up her pee. Is that normal for a breeder momma to do? I'm assuming so and more so in her case since she was probably in some sort of room/kennel most her life.

    When we bred our bully Bella she would lick up the pee from her pups (and eat the POOP). We kept one of the pups Winston, and if he had an accident in the house she would still lick it up!!! I really don't know if you can break this habit or if this is something that they always do... It drove us crazy though!!! LOL

    Yes, this is a normal mama, trying to keep her area clean, as when they have pups to clean the pups and keep her "nest" area clean. I have even had young female bullies that have never had a litter, do this if they had an accident in their crate.

    Maybe….Sally has had a life long dream to be an astronaut, Perhaps giving her Tang would help…. I agree with Davidh, the mothers tend to do this for their babies, Thinking they knew it was wrong, and best protecting their young from getting in any trouble is what I always thought, But I reasoned for myself that I can tell babies poop from the adults… Well, Well, Well, you have to be proud of her for graduating from couch's !!

    @pdolphin27

    I have not ever seen my girls lick up their own pee, but I haven't seen any accidents in the house so if they were to have an accident then maybe they would. They do clean up after pups and lick the crates clean, sniff and lick where they have been sitting, their beds, ect . So I do think its her way of "keeping the den clean".

    So in other words, Vicaroo has it right technically, she is cleaning up after herself, not because she likes to drink it, that is what I would think.

    Thank you all. I really appreciate the feed back. I figured it was from her being a mamma for so many years. She doesn't do it all the time though which is odd to me, I would think she'd do it every time. After talking to her vet today, Dr. Tom also feels that she was beat quite a bit during her life by the way she acts, her docileness and extreme calmness. If she has to go she just goes (never being house trained either). I don't think it's cause she's can't actually hold it, he piddles in the house more because she doesn't know better. I made a loud comment like one night a week or so ago when she piddled and she cowered down. It broke my heart. Dr. Tom and I talked today and before I told him that he said that he's pretty confident she'd been beat over the years. My heart sunk for her.

    aweeee Jeannie thank goodness you came along for her. it pulls on the strings of my heart,
    Dolly does lick the three youngins, but not Jack. But that's as far as it goes. knock wood we don't have accidents in the house. Incredible for having all five loose without crates or gates
    Life is like a box of chocolate covered

    Sally is cleaning up after herself. After having all of those litters she could have some issues with incontinence. Makes my heart hurt to think of all that sweet girl has been through. I hope her previous owners are NOT still breeding dogs (or kids, for that matter).

    seeing your Pet cower when your correcting their actions is a sad state of Affairs, Its pretty much a tale tail sign of this history !! I think we need to trace her previous owner, and do a little more correcting if you ask me !! just my opinion….
