Ear Hematoma

Yesterday I noticed a quarter sized lump on Albus' ear.  It was all squishy just like it was fluid under the skin.  This morning I took him to the vet and he has a hematoma.  We aren't sure what caused it, he hadn't been shaking his head or anything, but its there.

So he's scheduled for surgery to fix it Monday morning.  Anyone had this surgery before?

she's peeing in the house again.

I was wondering if anyone had any advice for us. She was doing completely fine on her potty training, maybe one accident in the house all of september, and a few times here and there in her crate. But then already into this month she has peed three times in the house. She used to stand by the door when she needed to go, and stopped doing that, but without any accidents. Now all we get is her leaving the room for a second and coming back with her ears down.

Did she forget that she's potty trained?

Today is Daisy's birthday! She's half Boston Terrier half Pug and now 6 years old. I can't believe she's that old.. but it also makes me realize how much I've accomplished since I got her.

So I took her to Petsmart for her birthday tricks and treats! I bought one of those laser lights because my friend's cats go nuts over it and I asked the lady about dogs, and she said they'll be just as crazy for it.

Daisy is unresponsive. She's only interested in what is in my hand. She only noticed the light a few times.. and I'll do it all around her and it's like shes oblivious to it or maybe just doesn't care.

Is there any special way to get them to notice it or is it more like they either get it or they don't? Any tips before I take the thing back?
