CANOPY SAM Posted September 13, 2012 Share Posted September 13, 2012 Here's an interesting one for ya'. We've recently become new parents of a 9-month old black lab. He's really a great dog, extremely loyal, absolutely loves kids, even prefers to do his "business" in the woods!!! I love this dog! Here's the kicker. Once in a while, this guy falls asleep so hard at night that he wets the bed, which unfortunately is MY bed as well! He just crushes himself into the comforter, rolls over on his back with all four legs in the air (showing off his mammoth junk), and crashes into a hard sleep. He doesn't always do this, but too often we wake up in a wet spot, and he's STILL sleeping in it like nothing has happened! We've really limited his water intake after 7:00 p.m., take him out many, many times before bedtime, and make sure he voids every time. I've done the research on this, and most say to see the vet, but I honestly don't think anything is wrong. His urine doesn't smell, he has no problem urinating when he needs to, he's well house trained, and he doesn't lick incessantly like he has an infection. I really get the impression he's just like a little boy who's played hard outside all day, and falls asleep so hard a little bladder accident doesn't even register. Anyone else ever have/see or hear of this issue? I mean your dog. Again, it's pretty intermittent. Most nights are dry, but occasionally we wake up and have to wash all the sheets. Bones is truly an awesome dog, so I'm not terribly alarmed by this, but just wondering if any of you have some insight or advice. Another point of interest, and perhaps applicable to the situation. Bones' previous owner didn't pay much attention to him. He was often locked in a kennel for many hours each day, and even when let out (after work) he wasn't really cared for much. He has mild separation anxiety because of this, and really doesn't like it when I have to leave him home (freely running in the whole house) for a few hours. I try to take him with me most often, but obviously can't take him everywhere. He's amazingly loyal to me, my kids, especially to my youngest daughter, and even my wife. He's VERY much a Ladies Man!
