    God it's good to know I don't own the only weird dogs out there.

    The setter will drink anything, toilet water, disgusting puddles of mud. But does prefer running water and drinking straight from the hose so that she also gets you wet.


    The whippets will chase a running hose and get soaked even in the middle of winter. So you'd think they would drink from a running tap at a show, but noooo, so I pack a broth to keep them hydrated at summer shows. They also like any bowl/bucket that has just been filled up unless of course we are at a show.

    She doesn't like to show, neither does my boy. Hence they don't drink.

    A Basenji lady put me on to electrolytes and chicken broth to help with hydrating at summer shows, don't bother with winter. Mind you her dogs are all show ponies, typical Basenji's that get off on the sight and sounds of the show. Maybe they are too far the other way, really hyped up.

    My girls love to show so will drink.

    Mickey will play ball in the car park but not at the ring. The ring is where we stand and put our sour face on to annoy mum, unless there is a girl in season around and then annoy mum by being a pogo stick on legs.

    I fear I am there for the amusement of others some days.

    Batty loves his metal bowls. He likes to make as much noise as possible with them. He also likes to let me know it's dinner time by scooting the bowl along the floor with his nose.

    It's frustrating, I have to wait for him to stop and leave it alone before I can feed him! I learnt the hard way not to leave the bowl in with him overnight. I only did it once and was woken by the most awful ruckus! He decided that pushing it against the bars and hitting it with his paws was a good thing.... at 3am....

    Thank god for crate training although mine like to bark at 1am for some reason and I have to let them out and then they jump up on the glass door and slap their metal tags against it and it makes the most horrid noise.
