I saw this recently and found it totally fascinating :eek:.

It is a super slow motion of how dogs drink and it is totally opposite to how I have always thought!

That's a cool video :thumbs up

I had actually figured that's how they lapped up water but never seen it in slow-mo like that. :cool: Makes complete sense when you think about where the water is slopped around the water bowl, for those of us who've had very messy drinkers :laughing:

Messy drinkers, what do you mean :confused:.



:laughing::laughing: Looks at the dog water bowl in it's lovely plastic surround with three extra towels to sop up the excess ....

I could wash the kitchen floor & half the hall :rolleyes: with the excess water Cally slopped outta his dish & dribbled as he left :laughing:

Wow, I had no idea, how cool! I DOES make sense, though, when you think that all the slops are under the dog's chin and not in front of the bowl. Thanks for sharing!:D

I know what you mean :D. You should see what three labs (when Sammy is here) can do :laughing:.

Yep.....and one of my previous sibes used to scoop the water up in her mouth and then fling it across the room. :rolleyes: :frustrated:

Rainbow :laughing: too funny :laughing:

I tried to teach Cally to stand at the bowl & wait a minute after drinking so he'd dribble on the towel instead of down the hall but he'd come right over to you & get your lap/feet soaked :laughing: That was one trick that never worked :laughing:

LOL....I'm sure that Cally only wanted to share with his mommy. :D

And, since you know how sibes "think", I am sure that Summer :rip: flung the water in retaliation for us building a box to enclose the water bucket to finally prevent her from tipping it over. :D

That's very interesting. I wonder if cats do it the same way.
