Great report.

To get a clean urine sample - go to the store and get a plastic ladle and immediately write in magic marker on the handle -"pets only". Take it out with you on walks and hold it near the dog when it is urinating to get it used to it. Practice a few times swinging it under to catch urine mid stream. You don't want the beginning or the end. Try not to touch the fur or belly. Practice pouring it immediately into a container similar to the size of your specimen bottle. Then when it's time for THE sample, the dog will not be bothered by your "weird" behavior. First morning urine is best and keep it refrigerated/on ice until you get it to the vet. :)
