LOL Odie is the same too!!! When I was in the other apartment that I had to leash him to take him out and it was raining he would stop cold on the door, facing me with his head back, pulling on the collar and leash and his face in an expression that clearly spelled NO! LOL.. now in the room I'm at I open the door and if it's raining he stands in the door for a while.. looks outside and gets back in.. I do the same as Melissa... I throw him out and close the door and look through the window while telling him to pee and poo.. he looks at me with disgust and then tip-toes to his spot.. goes and comes back running. LOL.. oh, and he jumps all the puddles that he finds!!!
