Creative Ideas for potty areas

We have two chihuahuas and this will be our first winter with them. They HATE going outside when itís raining, especially going in the wet grass. I can imagine they will hate the snow even more.
They have a dog door that goes on to a deck then in to out yard. They poop on the deck when the weather is bad. Thatís not ideal but better than the house... they will not pee on the deck though. The way our house is set up, it would be difficult to let them out any other way.
I am wondering if anyone out there has any creative solutions for similar dogs. Thanks.

They are dogs first and foremost ... they need to go outside to relieve themselves and outside they must go! It wont kill them, be firm ... if you must you could put coats on them, but best not be soppy! My daughter has 2 chis both of whom dont like the bad weather but have no choice in the matter ... they are put out into the garden every morning and hopefully walked, then repeat performance at night. Weeing on the decking I can understand .. could you put down a large tray for them filled with soil? Esp if they are males, they will need a post to pee against! But treat them like dogs, not pampered lapdogs, and they will be much happier for it ... persist, it wont be easy, but they will learn just like Gucci and Diesel! Gucci at a very young age went for a 6 mile walk on Putsborough beach in January with no coat, running like a looney with our Malamute cross in and out
Of the sea, rockpools all the while pouring with rain!!
