This may be due to a high salt diet, so he has to drink because he is dehydrated and of course, drinking a lot makes you pee a lot.  Maybe check with local grocery store or pet food store as the food he is eating may contain a  lot of msg, monosodium glutomate, which is a salt and a flavour enhancer.  There may be a better alternative to his diet which contains less salt and is better for overall health

The dog must also be drinking a lot. This could be a sign of serious illness, such as diabetes, and I would take your dog along to a vet if I were you.

I hope that you've taken your dog to a vet by now, but if not, you need to go right away. These symptoms could be serious, and "just" a urinary tract infection can develop into a life-threatening kidney infection if untreated by antibiotics.

Don't let him go to the bar anymore.  Every time I go to the bar, I drink and pee a lot too.
