Join me on my journey as I grow to become part of my pack/family. We'll have a lot of fun along the way! Hopefully, I can make you laugh.

Water Dish Update

Do you remember when I got my new water dish?  You know, the one that is like a mini waterfall in our kitchen? 


You can check out the post here:  Kitchen Water Feature

Well, even though I was really interested in it in the beginning, Mommy noticed the other day that I have not been drinking from it for about a week now.  I have been asking to go down stairs to the studio when we get home from a walk to get my drink.

So, Mommy decided to put a bowl of water on the floor beside my water fall to see which I would choose.

I chose the bowl of water.

So, Mommy kept that filled for the past two days and I seemed pretty happy.

Last night, Mommy decided to take the water fall apart.  She intended to just put it away.  This is what she found when she was cleaning it out.


Even though we used filtered water and had a filter in the waterfall, the bowl started to get a nasty ring around it.


This is the other side of the bowl, by the intake for the filter.  Pretty nasty dark line!


And this is what Mommy found inside the place where the filter sits.  It was like a gooey slim.  Mommy said it was like the stuff she used to find when she cleaned out a goldfish bowl.


Even the tank under the “refill” tank had the slimy stuff in it.  No wonder I would not drink from it.

Mommy said she is going to leave it sit over night to dry out.  Then she is going to wash it again and try it one more time.  If it happens again, we go back to the old fashioned water dish for good. 

We’ll keep you updated on our test.

Puppy kisses,


P.S. Keep your eyes open for a give away from Mommy and me.  We are testing something new and hope to post a review around the first of next week.  And we will be announcing a special give-away.  Can’t wait to share it with all my friends.


  1. Wow - good thing you all took that apart to see what was so fishy! Hope it works out in the end!

  2. Do you think some of it was doggie spit? We slime our water bowls all of the time.

  3. Ew, that's not nice! My dogs just get a water bowl, and are happy enough with it. :)

  4. Thank you for the post. I was getting a bit bored of my water bowl so my Mama and Papa were considering buying a fountain like yours. But now we're not so sure any more. We're waiting for your next update :-),

  5. There's nothing like a good ol' fashioned water bowl! :)

    Woofs & hugs, <3
