Why has my dog recently started peeing right next to the puppy pad?

We originally trained our puppy to use puppy pads. Because she is so small (2.5 pounds full grown), her bladder is very small and we continue to lay them out for her for emergencies. Recently, she has started peeing right next to the pads, instead of on them. She will even occasionally poop on the pad, but will pee right off of it. How do I train her to pee on the pad, when she used to use it correctly, but doesn't now?

I tend to think that your puppy began feeling uncomfortable about peeing on the pad hence pee's next to it. Try changing the position of the pad and rewarding him when he does it on the pad. Check out http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_6382624_pee-pad-train-dog.html for more tips.
