The past three days in a row this guy has had "accidents." Except they are right in front of me... and when I say, "Oliver!" he goes and runs under the bed. I have recently started working instead of being a student. So instead of being around most of the day and gone odd hours, I am gone consistently 8.5 hours a day. He looks right at me as he does it and when I react runs away. Am I anthropomorphizing in thinking he is mad about me being gone long periods? He never did this before...

Rest assured I have not scolded him... yet.... he knows what he has done the minute I acknowledge it.. but what should I do to curb it? Or will it die out on its own?

Thanks, dog whisperers!
