As much as I love my hounds, ex stray dogs come with issues. Doris’ biggest flaw is so won’t tell us when she needs a pee. This means that most mornings she’s left a wet patch somewhere, obviously I’d rather like her to stop doing this, but as she’s not getting the hint I leave rugs in places she commonly pees so I can machine wash them. Sadly she goes next to the rug some nights and this is why I am happy I own a Vax. It’s not a big or powerful one, but it gets the job done eventually.
