Desperate or Lazy?

I was shocked the other day to discover this going on right in my house!







I never knew she did this. You'd think that she did not have her own bowl of fresh water just a few yards away. Eww. Lid down from now on.

I'm sure she been doing this forever. Our dog can have a nice fresh bowl of water, but will still head for the toilet--I try to remember to put the lid down! I agree--eww!

Maybe she thought she might see a gold fish swimming there ;-)

She looks shocked that you were shocked to find her doing that.

jamqueen: she probably was doing it forever. Not any more though!

claypso: I know you wanted to say brown trout but didn't dare!

jackie: I think she was a little surprised to see that flash go off! Served her right!

I am certain that she thinks you are shutting down her reliable watering hole.

And I wish Lora would dare to! ha! Lora drains her water bowls and I often don't keep up. But unlike Laura the Great, she only wants to watch in flush, not to drink! I guess rolling on dead fish satisfies her need to be gross!

Heh! This will probably work a lot better than your mother yelling at you to put the lid down :)

Our cats do that too, and my other dogs used to do it all the time. I think the water is cooler in there or something. But yuck!

I've caught our dog doing it once. I checked her water bowl and it was empty. I still try to remember to keep lids down, especially since I put bleach tabs in the tank! Remember the cat in Meet the Parents who actually used the toilet!

steve: and she would be right!

zina: and watching it flush is not gross? eewww.

jonna: you have a memory like an elephant. I remember you bringing up the subject of the toilet seat once before.

sue: I never thought of that. But if I can drink water a tiempo, so can she!

beck: if I checked her bowl and it was empty i would have felt guilty. she was just being lazy!

Hysterically funny BUT better then what Velcro does which is leap from behind me onto the bathroom sink, in the morning, BEFORE I've had my coffee, while I'm brushing my teeth. Although she does this almost every morning, I still JUMP every morning, not expecting a creature to come flying at me! She likes the water out of the sink better then her bowl. Go figure........
