If she could talk, she may tell you,
"I'm very frightened and I am wetting myself to show you I am not a threat to you."

I did not, really did not, say you are abusing your dog. I was trying to get you to think about what your dog is thinking as a help to understanding her behavior.
Here is a quote from: http://www.canismajor.com/dog/puptrain.html
"When first introduced to his new family, a puppy will usually act somewhat submissive. When greeted, your new puppy may roll over on his back and urinate or he may squat and urinate. He is sending you a message in dog language which says, “don’t hurt me, I am not a threat to you
.” If he submits in this manner, do not scold him or you will make the problem worse."
