What is it about toilets that makes dogs want to drink from them?
The 2 dogs I had while growing up drank from the toilet, my friends' dogs drink from the toilet, my relatives' dogs drink from the toilet...so, it should be no surprise that Maisy chooses to hydrate herself by...you guessed it...drinking from the toilet.
Never mind the dog has not one, BUT TWO, perfectly good water bowls available to her at any time, should she feel parched. One bowl is blue, the other is white. Funny thing is, she prefers her blue one. She won't drink much from the white one...even though she has no reserve about drinking from the "other" white bowl.
Matt & I are usually pretty good at putting the lid down on the toilet in both bathrooms, but every now & then, we forget. (Well, Matt forgets more than I do!). Maisy must have "lid up" radar because every now & then, she'll casually leave whatever room we're in & be gone for about 3 or 4 minutes. But, she gives herself away, because she comes back in the room, she's licking her choppers & more often that not, little droplets of water fall from her face.
We don't tell her we know what she's been doing because we don't want to spoil her little secret, instead we just go put the lid down & wait for the next time!
