(no subject)

Porkchop is now 10 months old. He's been potty trained for months now. He's been crate trained since he was 8 weeks old.
He has NEVER peed in his crate.

My boyfriend says he's a diabolical genius.
He's been peeing in his crate every night for the last week or so. So we have to take his bed out and wash it. And usually when we do that, he gets out of crate time.
The boyfriend says he's doing it on purpose. When we're not home, he will be in his crate for HOURS and not have an accident... so why is he having them when we are home?

So my question is, how do we handle this?
Do we make him sit there with the pee, so he doesn't get what he wants?
That's kinda mean... but if he's doing it to get out of his crate, then how else can we stop him from doing it?

My boyfriend just mentioned that he doesn't seem to be doing it when he doesn't have his bed in his crate, so should we take the bed out of there?? We just feel bad because we want him to be cozy....

Errgghh... lol... the more I think about it, the more he seems like a little scheming creative genius
