Andy Claims a Tree

Andy: "I don't care if this is the George Washington Bicentennial Memorial Tree. I will pee on it and it will be mine."

*Confession: I've never actually witnessed Andy lifting his leg to pee or "mark territory." He pees like a girl, you know...he's a squatter. Maxwell was the same way his entire life. I always wondered why this was and only bothered to look it up recently. I didn't spend too much time looking but from what I gather squatting to pee is fairly common in male dogs that are neutered young. The whole lifting-of-the-leg to pee thing is typically done by older, more mature dogs, to mark territory. Neutering young apparently removes this drive.
