HELP! Getting unwanted presents from Chipper!

CHIPPER
I need some help and advice - if you have any experience with dogs, maybe you can give your thoughts...
As most of you know, we have a sweet little dog named Chipper. He's 4 1/2 years old and has been housetrained for about the past 3 1/2 years. Several months ago he started doing his business behind our big screen t.v. We wouldn't find it until way later when we'd be back there working with wires or something. A real bummer. I've tried to be better about keeping track of what he does when he's outside and sometimes putting him in his kennel if I know it's been awhile since he's done #2. Well, this morning, I found that Chipper has moved his location to Emily's bedroom - a pile from a day or two ago and a fresh pile this morning. AAAGGGHHH!
If he hadn't been a member of our family for the past 4 1/2 years, I would put an ad in the paper TODAY to find him a new home. But he is Emily's best little companion here, our primary reason for getting him the first place, so I need advice on how to solve this problem quickly! Do I have to totally start over with housetraining and keeping him kenneled or with me at all times? Do I only put the food out for a little while and then take it away? Any help would be appreciated! I'm totally grossed out and can't handle much more!
Signed,
Desperate Dog Mom

I am absolutely NO help in this department, short of suggesting Chipper wear a diaper! What a bummer though!

We haven't found a mess even downstairs for a long time now with Lexi. We started doing what you do, and keep Lexi outside until we see that she did her business. We also take Lexi outside a lot more than Chipper goes outside. Maybe you should try taking him out mid-day. I have always thought that was a long time to hold it for a little doggie like Chipper. :) We also only give Lexi her food at night, in her "house." Maybe you can try that and see if it helps at all. Good luck!!!
