Mydog gets me up every morning at about 3:30 for a pee break.  I always take advantage of the opportunity and join her.

Marking my territory has had some success at rabbits deciding they should find somewhere else to burrow. A little dirt in the hole and the grass comes back decently too.

Years ago we had a dog that peed in the same spot in the yard. All the grass died in that spot, so I assumed that urine (at least dog urine) wasn't the best for plant life.

It's too much. Even a single morning pee could do that. You may have noticed that the grass surrounding the dead spot was doing very well.

Urine a lot of trouble now!

So there are no negatives then (except for the grass).

Really bad idea, unless you limit it to the lawn. 
Urine is rich in Nitrogen. Great for grass, really lousy for flowers.
A few years ago, we used a deer repellent based on concentrated urine.
Unfortunately, we used it around our paeonies. Instant growth of leaves, followed by loss of colour in the flowers. It took several years before the paeonies recovered. We're talking about the variety "Scarlett O'Hara" turning into a pale pink.
Oh yeah, if you want to use it on the lawn, spread it around a bit; by lawn fertilizer standards, it's pretty concentrated.

I'm willing to pee on wheat and barley crops and be paid in beer.

Apropos of nothing but my mom was a nurse and one summer back in the 70s when I was a kid she regularly brought spoiled blood home from the hospital and poured it on her rose bushes claiming the iron was good for them. I think someone at the hospital put a stop to it because she only did it the one summer. Probably for the best as I'm sure the neighbours had a lot of questions.

I'm laughing. They don't walk home from the bar. U of M students pee on the back seat of an Uber.

I had a pandemic foster dog for a while.  She never once ever asked to go out.  But she'd go every time I took her out.  Even if we'd just been out an hour before, she'd head straight for her pee spot and do what she could.  And she always saved a log for the park.  Even if she pooped right before we got in the car, she'd still have one on deck when we got there.

That dog must have been in the Boy Scouts.
'Be prepared' and all that.

CSB: Years back, I visited my friend in a big city. He lived on the 30th floor of a 32 floor building and had just moved in with some other friends. They were throwing a party to celebrate this. Someone gave them a few of those little plastic men with parachutes and we ended upharking them off the balcony. They made it a good distance from so high up and landed in some shrubbery by the road. Three of us went down to retrieve them.

We're down there, poking around in the bushes when a couple of security guards come upon us.

"Hey! You guys aren't pissin' in those bushes, are you?"
"No. We're retrieving parachute toys we threw off the balcony."
"But you're not pissin' in the bushes?"
"Nope."
"Okay."

And off they went. Throwing things off the balcony was apparently a-okay so long as we didn't piss in those bushes.

CSB #1: I used to live in a shiatbox in the middle of DC with 3 other guys and only one bathroom. There was an alley behind the house, and a grass-covered parking spot, so we called that "the downstairs bathroom" (Number Ones only).

CSB #2: A friend of mine was studying wildlife biology and setting up camera traps in the wild for some big cats (mountain lions or leopards or something). She was out in the middle of the woods, nobody around for miles, and what better way to entice predators into an area than with new-smelling urine?

// IIRC, a photo she got with that trap won an award or made the cover of some fancy journal or something

Best grass in my yard is where the dog pees, but not regularly.  A little's good, too much burns the grass.

But that sounds very '70s...."Well, what could we do?  She said it was good for her flowers; and we weren't usin' it...I din't see anything wrong with it.  It's natural and all.  I did tell her to bring back the bottles, though.  We pay a deposit on those." Whoever put a stop to it probably didn't want the hospital name to get out, or they'd get barraged by requests for all their old blood.  And you don't want to call attention to 'iffy' stuff like that.

When the guards walked away, did you then pee in the bushes?

The grass is always greener where the dogs have been shiatting.
