He still pees his pants

We are approaching the one year Gotcha day for Shane.  Shocks the hell out of me.  People say he looks like a different dog.  He should..he has gained about 6 pounds, lost at least a pound of fur, has pearly white teeth, his fur is white and he hasn't been bitten by a flea or slept outside in a year.  But who knew he'd still be here one year later. 
 I wish I could say his bladder had gotten bigger.  But in the year, I've learned that Poise pads are awesome and sold in bulk at Costco.  A diaper genie rocks at holding wet Poise pads and keeps your trash smelling like trash and not pee.  And Tinkle trousers are great and don't leak..even though they might resemble something from medieval times.  I promise he is not as miserable as he might look in this photo...I will get a standing one at some point..but he doesn't stand long.  He can't help that he pees his pants..he is old and never properly housetrained.
 So happy 1 year Gotcha day, Shane.  We will celebrate your 14 1/2 birthday in December.
Doc wants to know why we don't celebrate his half birthday..

Happy Gotcha Day! He's such a sweet old man! Beth used to just poop in her bed. They were rock solid till the end, so very easy to pick up.

I never heard of those pants you have... I have heard of the belly band. Would that work for you?
He is beautiful! Looks like my Fleur. Happy birthday boy.

Happy Gotcha Day! You are a very lucky guy. Those tinkle trousers sound very interesting.

I'm fascinated by tinkle trousers. What a great thing. Sorry, Shane, I should be saying, "Happy Gotcha Day." That's the important part.

When my Jack Russell start to dribble, the vet gave me Propalin Drops. She only needed a few drops on her food and she never dribbled again. The little bottle lasted for ages.

Happy Gotcha Day Shane. so glad you have found a family who will love you for the rest of your life.

Happy Gotcha Day, Shane! I am so glad he found his way to you, and it's probably the reason he's decided to hang around for a while. He's probably really enjoying the good life!

Happy Gotcha Day Shane :) Such a gorgeous boy. Sounds like you've found the perfect solution for his little problem. Just as well you can get them in bulk, he's probably so happy he will be wanting to hang around for a few years yet!
