Default Question about peeing and my daughter's boston

Hi all:
I hope you don't mind a non-chi related question. I know you all are so good at diagnosing problems and coming up with solutions.
My daughter has a 1 year old boston terrier. Maggie has been pee pad trained and has been really good for months now. All of a sudden, she is peeing in front of my daughter all the time. Like daughter was sitting on the couch and Maggie just squatted and peed right in front of her. This has happened a number of times during the past few days. I thought maybe it was a UTI, but she said she isn't peeing more frenquently or amount. Just doing this in front of her thing. SHe is married and the dog never does it in front of her husband. So, what do you think? She catches her in the act and quickly puts her on her pad, tells her no, etc. but doesn't know why, all of a sudden she is doing this.
Thoughts? Thanks.

It could be a UTI?! Sounds strange that she only does it in front of your daughter. Almost like she's trying to tell her something's wrong. I'd have her checked out.

I know. It's so weird. She was thinking that maybe she needed to pay more attention to her so has been making sure that she is the one doing the walks after work etc. I'll tell her to call the vet just to get that checked out.

It's just something that doesn't sound normal to me. If it was more attention, she'd be jumping on her, tugging at her shoe strings or something like that. By getting her checked out, she can rule out any kidney infection or UTI.

I'd take her to the vet first. but since its only in front of the daughter, i might think a bit behavioral. Has anything changed in their routine or what not to throw the dog off? I honestly don't have a way to fix that, lol but its worth a look into seeing of anything changes. sometimes its only little things can throw dogs off. I once rearranged my living room and salem hid in the bedroom for a day and half....he dun like change LOL

I don't know. She is in the navy and both her and her husband work. But her schedule has been home and she gets home early (3:30) every day. Nothing's really changed that she can think of. I almost wonder if it's a dominance thing with her for husband's affection, you know? I know when she was here over Christmas with Maggie, Bruiser was not happy with her and when she walked through the kitchen, he peed on her leg. He has NEVER done that before to anyone. But he was pissed that she came home with another dog. I don't know. Maybe it's her. LOL

Laurel will pee in plain sight just to get attention...it doesnt sound like the same thing, but, yeah, she'll walk right up to you and pee directly in front of you with this spiteful look in her eyes!
