Nightime Gotta Pee Alarm

Mom says that Hazel was the easiest to potty train 
out of all the pugs that have lived at the PugRanch.
From the time she was a puppy she only had a couple of accidents in the house - until recently.
The one downside of Hazel taking Lasix is 
she pees more and when she has to go - she has to go!
And that includes 1 or 2 times during the night.
Most of the time either Mom or Dad will get up and let Hazel out when she gets off the bed. But Hazel woofs very softly and one night neither of them woke up. 
Poor Hazel couldn't wait and peed on the carpet. 

Mom and Dad knew that was embarrassing for Hazel so they put their heads together and came up with a solution.

Do you see the weird box 
mounted at the bottom of our bed ramp?

It is a sensor that detects movement. 

See the box behind Mom's alarm clock?
Now when Hazel goes down the ramp, 
the sensor sends a signal and an alarm goes off, 
alerting Mom & Dad that some puggy needs to go out

They found an alarm that had a "low" volume setting 
They hear it but it doesn't "jar" them awake. 

Hazel says she sure is lucky 
to have a Mom & Dad that love her so much

We are the PugRanch Kids
Hazel & Mabel

    that is certainly a solution - hope it goes well for you... my angel Jade took to wearing nappies really well - even would come and let me know when she needed changing! Hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

  2. My sweet precious Huggg Puggy Hazel....what a wonderful set of parental units you have. OMPs...when they put their heads together miracles happen.
    What a clever device and thank goodness not to loud cause it might scare the pp out of Pugs and Parents
    Well done
    Hugs Cecilia

  3. that is such a super idea!!! Hazel your pawrents are fabulous ;O)))

  4. Hazel is lucky, not only to have such a loving Pawrents but such smart ones too.
    Jolly well done!

  5. What a brilliant invention! Now you won't have to be embarrassed anymore, Hazel!

  6. What a wonderful way to solve the problem!

  7. Your pawrents are very clever to figure out a way to make sure they know when Hazel has to go in the middle of the night.

  8. That is ingenious. Don't feel bad about peeing. It happens to the bet of us.

  9. That is a wonderful idea! I love that you recognize Hazel's embarrassment over having an accident. Most people get irritated about the mess and don't realize how hurt their senior dog is to have an accident. She is indeed a lucky lady and I love her so much. ♥

  10. That is such a great thing for your peeps to do for Hazel. We bet it makes Hazel feel good not to be having any accidents too. Kudos to Mom and Dad.

  11. Awww that is BRILLIANT!!! Hazel you have the BEST Mom and Dad EVER! Thank you for sharing that with us, we all may need it some day! xoxo

  12. That is a mighty fine bed ramp, and your pawrents are super smart and loving to think of that great solution to help you and the carpet, both. We have wood floors, so when Xena tick, tick, ticks over to Mom's side of the bed, we all wake up. I think she just goes over to see if Mom's awake.

  13. Oh, you are one lucky puppers Hazel! How pawsome is that, that your peeps figured it out, so you don't have to feel bad abouts having accidents! High Paw to your peeps!

  15. Oh wow, what a very cool invention. What'll they think of next?

  16. Hazel the fact your peeps put a sensor in show how much they love you.

  17. That looks like a great solution. Much better than wearing doggy diapers, nobody wants that!!

  18. What a grreat solution! I just nudge Momma until she wakes up, then go whine by the door.

  19. Hazel,, you are right,, your momma and dad love you sooo much! They would do anything for you!
