    @ssesler , he never squats to poop, but sometimes he is able to push a lot of poop out, and other times i can see it sitting in his rectum. it seems like he pushes it out when his poop is more firm, when it's soft it's more of an issue.
    i sent you an inbox a few minutes ago... i appreciate all your help and advice

    [QUOTE=ssesler;230791]Hi!

    Oh mygoodness. I just read your post and had tears in my eyes… my Truman does has very similar issues! My Truman will be 4 years old this year. Two years ago(Aug 20), Truman “found me” and he was my rescue baby. When we got him he wasin really bad shape and his penis stuck out about 2 inches. He didn’t dribble alot of urine constantly. Sometimes it was just a few drops, but there would beepisodes of where he’s start dribbling constantly. But it would only be for afew weeks and then stop. Also when he had a bowl movement he didn’t squat. Hewalked around the yard, or as we affectingly call it, “drop it like it’s hot”.

    @ssesler...

    Your post really touched my heart and I will put you & Truman on my prayer list.
    GOD will bless you for reaching out to someone else and helping them solve their
    problem. One of my beliefs is that we are placed on this earth to be of service to
    each other and that we are to share the knowledge we learn, thru the good and
    the bad experiences, in order that someone else's life be better still.

    Thank you for being a great example of this and for being of service to your fellow
    man. Carol


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    it sure sounds like he is a spina bifida baby. Dont let them tell you to put him down. If you need any help let me know.
    Does his cowlick look like this?

    @bentley - It sounds like Bentley and Truman are long lost brudders. He also has poor anal tone and I can always tell when he needs to go. When we first got him he had horrible bowl issues, bloody colitis, constipation, just aweful. A specialist told me to try yogurt and sure enough, worked like a charm. Haven't had any issues since. He gets Activia at each meal and he's goes like clockwork. Regular walking also helps keep him regular.

    @kazzy220 - You're not going crazy. I did post Truman's story/diagnosis in another thread.

    @Texas Carol - I fought for Truman for two years before we got a diagnosis. Too much time was spent with vets thinking I was crazy. LOL. Don't want someone else to have to go through that.

    BTW - here's some pics of Truman rockin his diaper.

    Here's how the vet described Truman's "cowlick" in the physical exam. "A small patch of hair was ruffled over his dorsum in between the ilial protuberances (hip bones)."

    Remy had a prolapsed urethra just like @ChanelnBrutus little guy Brutus! No dribbling pee, but shooting blood so that my house and the vet's exam room looked like someone got hacked to death by a chainsaw!

    What a GREAT answer!!! Awesome that someone was able to at least point you in the right direction. I was going to say it sounded a lot like a spinal/neurological issue because we are kind of going through that right now (not spina bifida but another congenital issue). Please keep us posted!!!!

    Oh, and @ssesler, I would LOVE some info on the acupressure! Truman is so cute in his diaper.

    GLOSSARY:

    Cun: Chinese unit of anatomical measurement. i.e. The length of the first tail vertebra is equal to one cun. The width of the last rib is equal to one cun

    Yin: the feminine passive principle in nature that in traditional Chinese medicine is exhibited in darkness, cold, or wetness and that combines with yang to produce all that comes to be

    Yang: the masculine active principle in nature that in traditional Chinese medicine is exhibited in light, heat, or dryness and that combines with yin to produce all that comes to be

    Damp: In traditional Chinese medical theory, excessive dampness is a major cause and consequence of disease. The nature of dampness is to moisten and nourish, but also to clog and obstruct. It’s intimately related to digestion, and when it gets to be excessive, it can initiate, or by itself be the source of many health complaints. Excess dampness is usually reflected by signs and symptoms of sluggishness and stagnation. It has a turbid, heavy, and sticky nature and it can obstruct the proper function of body processes, especially digestion, elimination, and all fluid metabolisms.

    Dai Mai: binds all the Channels which run up and down the trunk, thereby regulating the balance between the upward and downward flow of Qi in the body. It deals with fullness and distension of the abdomen, pain and weakness of the lumbar region, and motor impairment of the lower limb. Indications include fullness and distension of the abdomen, irregular menstruation, leucorrhoea, prolapse, pain or weakness in the lumbar region, weakness or motor impairment of the lower limb, redness and pain of the eyes, vertigo.
