So there's not many, but I had to share these pics at least of Joey and Merlin. Both are adapting slowly but well; Merlin is still very nervous but he is content to come sit on the couch with us. I just don't think he's used to humans at all. =/ But, he is cute, that's for sure...

The Belly-Banded Boys


I just love his face... <3


And lastly, I think Merlin is making fun of Joey.. ;)

Thanks guys!!

Belly bands are just a strip of fabric, usually with velcro at the top to 'secure' it, that you wrap around a dogs belly (and his wee-wee) to keep them from lifting their leg and marking indoors. Basically a potty training aid; like a diaper but for boys. We start out lining ours with a panty-liner or pad too for absorbency; but usually once the dogs 'catch on' what they're for and realize a wet band is not comfy, they keep them dry anyway. Then slowly; as the dog gets used to just peeing outside; you allow more and more free time without wearing one until you've eliminated them completely. They are a must have at my house for fosters who are rarely potty trained lol.
