Oh my gosh, I can't stand when they knock over the water bowl... its always such a mess eek

Could it be that she's getting water other places besides her bowls? You might want to consider a doggie fountain. I understand they drink move moving water than they do water that just stands there.

Val,
I have the opposite problem...

OK OK didn't want to steel your thread. so I'll put that in a new one. Hope your Diva starts drinking appropriate beverage in adequate quantity soon.

Today's water consumption update. Since the snow is gone Neilla is drinking a little water (mix with City water and well water, but MUST be cold). Still not where I would like to see her water consumption, but at least she is drinking several times a day.

As the Lack of Water Consumption Turns.

Neilla doesn't care to drink water in the house. We have now discovered since it is a tad warmer that she likes to drink out of a pail outside. Will bring the same pail inside and she won't touch it. She knows where the water pail is set up now and when we take her out to potty once she is done IF she is thirsty she will head to the water pail and drink.

This girl is defiantly a riddle.

Hi Val,

I don't have any ideas-but I bet you chose a smart dog to challenge you with riddles.

I am sure she is worth the effort,
MJ

Neilla is drinking water but only outside in a pail and the water has to be cold. she is getting 4 - 6 big drinks a day so we will just make sure that she continues to drink.

thanks for checking in on us.
