    I hope it helps along with the other pics of how I attached them to stay up on boo. The string I used came from my sweater giving it a stretchyness about the string which helped tons when trying to get it to stretch when she laid down or sat up. Again I didn't want it to pull on her harness so I sacrificed my string from my sweater lol.

    Ugh… poor Finn, and poor YOU!!! I'm curious do you think he's just a heavy sleeper?!!

    Did they do any blood work on him?!! The reason I'm mentioning this is because peeing can be a symptom of many different things… I went thru this route w/Roxie

    I'm so sorry you are having such a tough time w/Finn… I hope they figure out what's going on soon.

    thanks Tracey. No blood work yesterday. And Finn is not a heavy sleeper in general tho last night he was out like a light! but the previous nights that this happened, he was not a heavy sleeper at all. I was reading up on sleep incontinence. I hope this is just a temporary symptom of something b/c he's only 4yo and i would be surprised if he was incontinent already. I will see what the vet says after the UA is back and if blood tests will be necessary. I don't want to restrict his water intake at night b/c he gets so thirsty and last night i made sure he went out to pee just before he went to sleep. Making hiM sleep in his crate at night is out of the question, of course!! how could i make him do that after 4yrs of sleeping on HIS big king size bed?

    If the diapers don't work you can us a belly band with an absorbent pad or diaper inside it.

    There is an item called Tinkle Trousers, that stay on and you put a pad or diaper inside. This is great if others don't stay on! You can google it. Hoping Finn will be A-OK -

We don't get the UA results til tomorrow. I'm worried he's become incontinent. For now, so that I don't have to launder the sheets every day, and b/c I don't like us sleeping in pee(!), I am thinking of looking for some diapers for Finn. I've never had to put a diaper on a dog and wondered if he'll even keep it on? He's fine w/shirts so I'm hoping he'll be cooperative w/a diaper. Anyone have success with diapers and bulldogs?
    I put a long post on a thread started by @baxter tiberius (?) I think it was titled "almost 2 and still peeing and pooping in crate." I have used a product called Tinkle Trousers on my boxer. It works great for dogs with short or no tails. It's a garment with straps that fits on the dogs body (girls or boys) and you insert a baby disposable diaper and it stays in with Velcro. Anyway, it's comfortable for the dog and easy to put on (once you get used to it). You can get at on line at tinkletrousers.com. At least go there and check it out. Some of the reviewers have used them and the peeing stops. They can't wiggle out of them and they really work.

    I'd try a belly band first. Selina and Sandi Kenitzer use one on Mickey because the pull ups dont catch all his pee pee. So they use a belly band and the diaper. But since Finn is just having a hard time with his pee pee...I'd go that route first.


    Selina says if intereseted contact Wendi Renzhofer Roth on Facebook

    Thanks everyone, for your comments and feedback. I got the pull up diapers but they sure are small and i think i got the biggest ones (4T-5T). I don't know, i've never had to buy diapers before. I will see if i can improvise them like Boo Boo's mom did, and if not, i'll check out both the belly bands and the tinkle trousers. This has been quite educational!

    I think i may need to try these trousers, Donna. When i looked at the website the trouser looks really complex! I'm sure i'll get the hang of it but does it really stay on,even with a wiggler like Finn? i'm mainly planning to use this when he's asleep at night and he moves around a lot when he sleeps. He doesn't pee when he naps during the day.
    Thanks again for the tip!
