Busy Lizzie: I can't claim the idea as my own, we did it for my parents cat when she got a little leaky in her old age. The blanket is still nice and soft for her but the waterproof backing did make things rather more manageable for us! Another idea would be puppy training pads on top of their bed that you can just throw away quickly (very useful if you or your partner get a little squeamish about cleaning up OR of course if you need to concentrate on cleaning up the dog!). I think I'm right in thinking they're soft so would still be comfortable to sleep on.
If he gets much worse have you considered doggy nappies? It does sound weird but apparently they can be very useful (even if just for when you're in the car?) if you can still cope with cleaning up.
I hope you all have a good day.
Talking about leaks: I've turned off the water at the stop cock outside and have been told the water board will be here before 16:00 to assess this "emergency call" as they seem almost overwhelmed with emergencies today. Have we had our first frost?
It is a little concerning that I can't see any evidence of water coming out of anything which means the leak must be either on my neighbours property or underneath the house. Either way: not good! (Especially since I'm having to flush the loo with water butt water so if its not a quick fix I'd best hope for rain!)
Stay Gaze: enjoy your cuddles!
