Thread: Water Bowl Blue's

  1. #1

    Default Water Bowl Blue's

    As the title has said it is right.
    Murphy has taken to playing in his water bowl that is inside.
    We were watching the idiot box and there was no Murphy.
    Like kids when they are quite it means they are up to no good.
    We got up to see what he was doing and there it was.
    He had close enough emptied outr his water bowl which is on the large side.
    So there was water all over the kitchen floor.
    The boss went to clean it up with the mop and Murphy then found a new toy.
    He was chasing it while all the time slipping on the wet floor.
    It was so funny watching this little dog go spread eagle on the floor and just missing out on landing a bite to the mop head.
    Spos this means now the water bowl has to go up while he is in and only put down when we think he needs it.
    But it was funny.

    My mate had a similar problem, he fixed it by getting a bucket and hanging it by the handle over the tap and leaving it there filled with water, but this was outside, so not sure what would work inside, for us, we just leave the water outside and leave the door open so our dog can just go outside when he needs a drink

    We would do the same but we have a cat and we don't allow it out after 4 pm.
    We have been doing this for a long time, way before the law here said that cats must not be out at night or something like that.
    No I think we will put his water down when he gets up.
    So then he can have a drink then go out and empty it out on the lawn a second or tow later.

    Nothing like a huge game reward and attention for spilling all the water out of the bowl, a fun activity all by itself.

    Is it possible to get a waterbowl that is too big or heavy or fixed for him to tip over?

    I got a very large ceramic bowl for my dog, that as a puppy she couldn't tip over. She probably could now but why would she bother when there is a whole clam shell of water to play in next to it.

    The inside water bowl is also heavy and ceramic and very low and wide ie hard to tip over. At least it hasn't happened yet.

    Or you could get erm

    Something tip proof.

    I agree with jonbax - thankyou for keeping the cat in at night.

    There are people who DONt keep their cats in at night? my two are also in around 4.30, even if there were no laws for this i dont know why someone would allow their cat out at night...

    dan4nas, it happens, even when they are out during the day, they roam the streets, I don't like cat's to start with but that's what makes me mad, if it was my dog , or yours, there'd be hell to pay, but it's ok for cats, legally they're not allowed to, but there is always a cat out

    M<y dog doesnt knock over her water bowl but she splashes in it with her front legs and can pretty much empty it out.

    In regards to cats, why shouldnt they be allowed at night? I dont understand...Glad I didnt bring my cats here from NZ then coz they woulda had a fit having to be locked inside at night.

    Because it may cause injury to someone by attacking them.

    When was the last time you heard of someone needing surgery because they were mauled by a cat.

    Keep the argument sensible with relevant comparisons.
