Chico "marked" yesterday
We are currently renting a townhome and we are moving into a much larger rental house this Sunday. I had damaged the carpet in my bedroom by accidentally knocking my box of nail polish off of the dresser. The impact of the glass nail polish bottles hitting one another caused 2 of them to break and spilled a pretty large size nail polish stain of black and hot pink.
Yesterday the carpet guy came to try to patch the rug and I put Chico upstairs in his crate until he left. Once he left Chico came right out of his crate and ran down the stairs-tracked his scent straight into my room. He sniffed right where the guy was and promptly began to mark the area.
I had mixed reactions. I was upset that he peed on the carpet, but I was proud (and sad) to see that he's growing up.
Sorry if that sounds crazy.
I'm just hoping that he doesn't do this again> I did scold him by telling him "No" and giving him my stern voice and face and then I put him outside to finish his business. We are moving into a home that had previous pets, so I am concerned about that.
