I've never had a girl, but with my boys I give them 'sanitary' trims. I trim the hair on their belly and privates. I don't know how, but TicTac get's pee all over his back legs
So the inner part of his legs gets trimmed too

I do not have to wipe off Abbey. She is very good about spreading her legs apart (almost laying in the grass) to go tinkle. She is such the diva!!
She hates to have anything dirty! She has to be forced to go in the grass or she would prefer to stay on the sidewalk!
A true princess!!

Sir N will clean himself immediately if not prevented. Generally, there is nothing there but his imagination as I keep the hair on his wee-wee trimmed VERY short and he has good aim. In fact, he could write his name if he knew how to spell it. Little C never has anything on her, but because Sir N is licking there, she feels like she must also.

I have no problem with either of mine urinating on themselves. Both have the sanitary trim under there. When Catcher urinates he stands with his legs spread out and none gets on him at all.

The sanitary trim is just as important for a girl, maybe more since it can help prevent urinary tract infections from bacteria.

Lady does get the one yellow leg when she uses a pee pad since she slightly lifts one leg. It doesn't happen outside, maybe because the ground is more absorbent? I swear by the Proline Self Rinse shampoo for urine stains.

Lacey gets a little trimming in the area so she doesn't get pee on herself. What I do have to do alot is keep the hair under her tail trimmed very short. She gets so embrassed if she gets poop on herself. Last time it happen I found her under the water closet (toilet) hiding. She has never been yelled at or anything when this happens so I don't know why she hids. I just calmly clean her up and tell her this is what mommies are for.

If Paris gets poop on her, she will try to get it off by rolling in the grass. That usually doesn't work and she keeps rolling around. I finally end up picking her up and bring her in to rinse her off. She can't stand having that on her hair. I've often wondered how she even knows it is there.

That's the way Kallie is... she hates when a little poo gets stuck. Poor thing, she will just sit down on the potty pad and wait for me to find her.. I wish she would bark or something.... I do as you do, and clean it off and she seems so grateful!

Catcher does the opposite, he will start running like crazy and try to sling it off of himself!

This is what Sassy and Sadie do also. They are so good about crouching on the potty pad, but if the poop doesn't fall right off they sling it everywhere. LOL

Same with The Buttercup. She will just stand there with the offending dangle-poo, very quietly, until I realize that she either a) is up to no good,
looking to be up to no good, or c) is in need of an Emergency Dangle-Poo Removal. I'll ask "Do you need mommy to get the poo off your butt?" and she will turn her butt toward me as if to say, "Yes, ma'am, it's right here. See? Please hurry!"

As for peeing, it's a guessing game. We have limited grass here for her to pee on, it's really only some little grassy/landscaped medians downtown (barely a few square feet large) and she'll climb up on the little hill and she almost always pees facing downhill so it comes running down toward her front legs. sometimes, she'll be sideways and (she curtseys when she pees anyway) the leg she lifts up so gently is the one that is "up" toward the top...so the pee runs down onto her other leg.



she's not bright...BUT SHE'S PRETTY!!!!!

ann marie and the "dangle poo? i dont know WHAT you're talking about! that NEVER happens to ME!" buttercup
