Our Yorkie-poo puppy has developed a new hobby, swimming in the water bowl.
We found out a few weeks ago that she loves water (as long as it isn't a bath) when we went to a local park that has a wading fountain. Now she's decided to bring the fun home by taking dips in the water bowls.
We have 2 large untippable bowls for our dogs and cats and, since she's still small (about 5.5 lbs), she can get in both bowls, at least partially. She splashes around and makes a big mess. It's funny to watch her antics though.
We've been trying to figure out a way to allow her to indulge in her new hobby without her making a mess several times a day. She doesn't like the tub. We've been thinking about getting a small plastic wading pool for her but of course that would be outside or in the garage.
I guess it's her poodle water dog genetics coming out. Is anybody elses dog a water fan, especially a small dog?
