Oh, my God! That was so helpful!!! =)
We did check... the day she got out of surgery, and they said she was doing better than any dog that they'd ever seen! (Imagine how proud that made me, since this is one of the best vets in our little town of Tucson...)
I'll make sure my father reads this, though, k?
Yes, we have Nature's Miricle, and my mother put it on earlier today. We're waiting until about 8:00 tonight to put this fresh-apple smell spray on the floor (it's some spray-can that you put on someplace you don't want the dog to pee on).
Dori's already hiding her poop, but she knows only to go in the backyard, and she just let's us sit there and watch her go to the bathroom; and she's (well, we think) smart enough to do her business behind & in bushes, where it will soon decompose, and I can't reach it, so I don't have to clean it up.. ^^
And, yes, you bet we have a doggie-door. But Dori has to have the cone-like white-thing on her head, and she walks around smashing into things with it on, and therefore can't get thru the dog-door... Yet... ^^ She's going in for a check-up Wednesday. Thank again for your help. If anyone has anymore suggestions, then please do state them here.
~We're so grateful for the answers we have recieved from everyone!
