1 trip

I would love love love if someone would teach our sweet pooch--who still rings the bells each and every time he wants to go outside---that he does not have to do his duties in 2 separate trips. He can indeed do both of his duties all in 1 trip outside.

In other words, he does not have to ring the bells, only to have me open the front door to a freezing gust of wind and snow. Then, moments later after having performed one deed or another, he will wimper and scratch at the door to be let in. So of course, I oblige. Good dog.

Then, no more than 5 minutes later he will return to said bells and ring them again. This time to perform the other deed. So again, for the 3rd time in no more 10 minutes I am opening a door to a freezing gust of wind and snow, with no fewer than 1 more trip back to this same door to let him back in again.

We encourage him to use the bells. We enjoy that he has found such a creative way to inform us of his need to relieve himself, which means that each time the bells ring, we must answer. And when no one else is home, or the kids are in bed--that means me.

This is where my plea comes in. Please, oh please Y-man, would you please do your deeds--in 1 trip. Thanks!
