GLENDALE, AZ – Daisy, a 9-year-old Weimaraner is just going to sit tight until her human caretakers have left the premises, even though she urgently needs to relieve herself.
For the third time in as many weeks, Daisy intends to leave unwanted deposits in the laundry room and perhaps the downstairs hallway for unknown reasons. Her caretakers have speculated, but have no rational answers. Discussions with Daisy have proved fruitless.
“The weather is not different. It’s been nice lately,” said Alice Sparks, who has raised Daisy since she was a puppy. “Last couple of times she did this I tried to get her to go outside and she gave me that ‘Nah, I’m good’ look.”
“It’s not like she’s tired,” said Alice’s husband, Dan. “Soon as we get home, she’ll bound right up the steps and back down again when we let her out, prancing around the yard like we don’t all know she just left a pile in the basement.”
The Sparks have considered the possibility of installing a security camera to perform surveillance on Daisy’s activity while they’re gone. A friend told them that it was a ridiculous idea, and that more frequent walks might do Daisy good. They are reportedly taking the advice under consideration.
