I think the Giant Schnoz might have a UTI. She’s drinking a lot more than usual, and wanting to go out frequently, but not accomplishing a whole lot when she does go out.
I found a great online resource just now, when I went looking to confirm my suspicions.

Of course, it being the weekend, it’s going to be more expensive to get her in to see a vet. Isn’t it funny how often medical things crop up (not just for pets, but people, too) on the weekend? I’m not sure if it’s just that we’re too busy during the week to notice (or admit) that something might be wrong, or just Murphy’s Law.
Anyhow, have a great weekend! And if you’re in the Pacific NorthWest, enjoy the summer temperatures! I hear it’s supposed to cool off again by Monday.
