Rickie, I have had dogs my whole life and a couple of them did this exact thing. My vet's remedy is humane and works: start confining pooch to smaller quarters. The dog doesn't want to be around it (urine or poo) any more than you do. If you have to leave, make sure pooch is safe, but in a smaller area (that's not the bedroom).
Dog will get the message after a day or two, but you might have to repeat it for a few times. Something else to watch for is if pooch is bored.Their life is quite short compared to ours, so minutes are like hours and hours like days to them. Dogs can pee just to get your attention. Good luck!
