|Thanks for the advice & info, Lynn. From both of you.
The strange thing is that Katy went directly from the one peeing incident to being as friendly as ever - there no longer appears to be any trouble between she and me.
She's also going out when she needs to, she seems to trust that we'll take care of Molly - or believes that she can get in and out without Molly noticing. But as per your advice, I've kept all the other dogs in when she goes out. So now the only contact the two dogs have is when Molly comes in occasionally. There's never been a fight between the two inside.
I've started reading a book that I had purchased a while ago - Pat Miller's "The Power of Positive Dog Training", which has been helpful in deciphering some of the behaviours I'm seeing. I'll also look for the author that you recommended, Lance. It looks like it's going to be books here, for a bit - I live in a very rural area and I'm afraid the closest of the AKC recommended obedience courses are at least an hour and a half drive from here. Not that Molly would mind - she loves the truck...
In the end, only kindness matters.
