Yep, there he is sporting his new diapers. He couldn't believe we were taking his photo to post on the blog. We told him not to be embarrassed -- about 25 million adult Americans have urinary incontinence, and in Japan the sales of adult diapers are set to overtake infant diapers. (No, really.) We don't know how many adult dogs are incontinent, but we've sure had quite a few over the years.
In Wilbur's case, his newly developed incontinence seemed to be a complication from his bladder stone surgery. Fortunately, the diapers work very well on him. We haven't had such luck on some other incontinent dogs -- generally because they manage to chew or pull their diapers off. But now Wilbur is back to skittering around the house at will, happy and leak-proof!
(In case you're wondering, the leg in the foreground of that photo belongs to Tanner.)
2014 Shelter Challenge Underway
The first round of the Shelter Challenge for 2014 is underway and runs until March 30th. You can vote every day here. To search for us, type in our name, Rolling Dog Farm, and Lancaster, NH 03584. We've won thousands of dollars in the previous contests, so your daily votes do bring in serious money for our disabled animals!
Please note that I cannot help with technical or voting problems. I also do not have an "inside track" to anyone at the Shelter Challenge, and I don't know any more about the contest than anyone else does. So if you find yourself having issues, please consult their FAQ page here and their Rules page, which is a pop-up you can find linked on this page.
Thanks for your votes!
