Jubal will ask to go outside, but he'll also use potty pads in an emergency. Although, as he's matured he'd rather *not* use them. We had a pelting rainstorm a few days ago, and I felt really bad for him because he waited by the door and whined until it let up enough to go out, even though I put some down for him. He had to pee so badly he barely made it down the steps. It's nice to have the potty pad option, especially if you live someplace where the winters are harsh. These little dogs do feel the cold, and she'll probably appreciate a sweater or a coat this winter. Jubal's first winter, I bought his clothes on sale or at Walmart. I figured there was no point in spending a bunch of money on stuff he'd outgrow. His first little ($9-from-Walmart) camo parka has been handed down and handed down again and it's still in good shape.

Welcome to Rattie Land. There is nothing wrong with using potty pads if they can't get outside. We have 5 ratties and if there is a bad thunderstorm I have 2 that won't go outside in it. I put potty pads down then so they will have a place to go. We've have also taught ours that it is okay to use the patio during storms. It is easy to wash with the water hose and it's tile floor so no problems there. It seems to me that you are doing just fine. Tell your friend to hush up, it's your dog, you train her the way you wish her to be trained.
