Definitely have Brooklyn checked for UTI. If it's not that, it may be a behavioral quirk. Once our Sophie discovered the world beyond our own property line, she likes to do her business elsewhere. Our Shih Tzu especially was like that!

I would trust her need to go on the grass. Their sense of smell is so fine-tuned compared to ours and we just don't know how it affects them. Or perhaps in the rainy weather dirt and mud aren't preferable outhouses. Nalu likes to choose her spot and sniffs around a lot before she finds just the right one.
