So you have all seen the photo's of our Molly who is just as cute as a button.

She is super smart and at the age of 10 weeks knows her name, comes when called, lies down on command and stays when asked to. (Proud mum non?)
She is playable, lovable and steals whatever clothing she can and marches it off to her crate for safe keeping.
However when it comes to tiddling she loves our kitchen floor. I take her out just as the book says and she piddles & then comes in 10 mins later & drops another puddle. We take her out regularly yet seem to be failing on catching her "2 second I have to go look."
So my question to all you dog lovers. Am I expecting too much from a 10 week old puppy to be making progress on house training?
The blessed book states 12 weeks is when they can control themselves & I can wait. I am not quite ready to hit her on the nose with a magazine as she is so little.
So I am open to any suggestions folks!

I can't believe you have a real, live andrex puppy! She is lovely.

I'm afraid I can't help much on the 12-week vs 10-week front... My parents actually got a lab-retriever puppy when I was two, so I grew up with one - not sure which of us was harder to potty train. And eveyrone I know as an adult has adopted an older dog. I have a friend who's a vet so I can ask her if you get really stuck after 12 weeks!

But she's so sweet-looking...I'm sure she's just trying your patience for now and she'll come around eventually!

She's adorable! Hope the piddle puddles end soon.
