People get dogs for the same reason women get boyfriends, companionship. Undomesticated animals cant be trusted for companionship. You don't think she actually needs you to keep her bed warm do you?

Could be worse. Atleast the "hot one" wasn't a "hot pile". Imagine how pissed you would be if that dog were a black lab.

House training a dog takes time and varies for each puppy. It took us nearly a year to housebreak our first dog but our second puppy was house broken in two weeks. Instead of blaming your SWMBO maybe you should help her train the puppy. Sometimes dogs can be as stubborn as their owners.

honestly, that dog is the bane of my existence. It's one of those pansy dogs that only loves its owner, and its not trained at all.

Chihuahuas are not dogs; they're actually rats with thyroid & pituitary problems. Rub the rat's nose in it's own crap & smack it with a rolled up newspaper. Then tell SWMBO to clean up.

But I must say that a chihuahau puppy isn't a dog. It's a rat that barks.

THIS is a dog:

remember that dogs can be helpful too, mine cleans up the messes I make when I brew. She must have drank a pint worth of wort and even some beer that I dumped out of an old keg.

House breaking a dog is simple. Crate it with an appropriate sized crate (not to big, not to small) when you can't keep a constant eye on it. When you can watch it constantly, limit it to only one room and every time it starts to squat to poop/pee, yell "no" and take it outside. Keep the area it's allowed to roam free small until it's no longer squating to poop/pee in that area then gradually make the area larger.

You'll have it trained in 3 weeks to a month.

The dogs I have had that were the easiest to house-train were already pretty much 'trained' by their mother.

My dog is always ready for anything I drop when cooking, brewing, etc. Just this past weekend I dropped a raw egg; "Jake!"

Very true. I'd never go there with a doberman, shepherd, rotty, etc. The advice was specifically an alternative to kicking small, football-shaped dogs...
