Granny, if I had my own place, I would send J by your place and have him haul her to me. What Lily needs is one person to work with her. She is playing all of you against each other. She needs someone who can put a leash on her and physically DRAG her @ss outside, then lavish praise on her to let her know she is no longer going to win the battles. She CAN NOT be allowed free range of the house. She KNOWS you are not physically capable of forcing her to do things. You have too many problems in your life right now to fight this battle and win.
Who ever owned her before you, needs to be shot! They ruined what could have been a good dog!!!
