Due to the difference in human posture versus that of the dog, erect and vertical vs. horizontal, your comparison of a "falling" urinary bladder in the dog is very unlikely to occur.  It's not impossible, but very unlikely.

There are several unanswered questions about your situation.  The age of your dog, has she been spayed, how long has this urinary incontinence been going on, have you had her examined by your veterinarain....

I write a weekly blog, Questions On Dogs and Cats, and a recent issue featured "Urinary Incontinence" at:

Depending on your answers to my questions, more information might follow.
