During the last six-months of Max’s life, he needed to wear diapers. He didn’t have great control of his bladder towards the end so he wore a belly-band and that was that. After we said good-by to him, I can’t say I missed that part. I would have continued doing it with no complaint, but I don’t think many people whose dogs need diapers will tell you that it’s the highlight of their day.
On bad-legs-days, Jake’s bum has trouble ‘holding it’. All of ‘it’. Especially at night. Unfortunately, he does not give me (or himself) any indication that he needs to go out so I wake up to him panicking or crying and by then it’s too late. While I’m happy to clean his crate EVERY NIGHT at 3am, I feel like that hour is better suited for sleeping so this weekend I got him some diapers. Of course he has to get the girl kind due to the fact that he can’t hold any of ‘it’ and since he doesn’t have a tail, I have to sew the tail hole shut. I got the denim variety so at least he could feel somewhat manly. Nothing says macho like little denim hot shorts. I’m sure he appreciates this.
“Please don’t tell anyone, okay.”
I hope if I ever need diapers, no one blogs about it!
Don’t worry Jake, we won’t tell anyone…else! 😉
You tease. You do a blog post about Jake wearing denim diapers and there is no photographic evidence?? I mean, lucky Jake (your momma clearly loves you), but poor us!!
PS (Jake, I had my own stint in a belly band. I feel ya, bro. XO Cooper)
I like to ‘pretend’ to protect his privacy! Actually, I have stood pretty firm on not filming or photographing his legs issue and he has the diaper on when his legs are at their worst but maybe I can put them on one day when he’s having uptime and we can do a fashion show, with music! “I’m to sexy for my diaper, to sexy for my diaper…”. 🙂
Believe me, it can’t possibly be as adorable as it is in my head. I’ll have those images to satisfy me for now! ….until the sexy video, that is. 🙂
Oh poor Jake! 🙁 I hope he (and you) start to get a better night sleep!
It is sad, he’s not sure what’s happened and I’m trying to coax him out of the ‘condo’ so I can change his bed out and clean up and he’s still half asleep. His condo may need to upgrade to two rooms!
You are a mean, mean mom 😉
Hahahah! I try!
Great, now it’s on his “record”. 🙂
Permanent! This post will follow him forever!
Oh Jake, I bet you look pretty cute in those diapers. And, just think of all the uninterrupted sleep everyone will have now! It’s a win-win situation!
I’m sure he rocks them with style – hopefully everyone gets a better night’s sleep!
I’m waiting to see Jake in diapers…. waiting. 😛
