Tanner's greeting

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.

The end of the Kitchen Waterfall

Water!!!  It is something we all need!  The question is, how to we as fur-babies get our water?  I still have not figured out how to turn on the faucet.  And Mommy does not like it when I put my paws on the counter.  So what is a fur-baby to do?

Mommy wanted to spoil me.  She thought a needed a new water dish.  So several weeks ago, she bought me a waterbowl that filtered the water.  You can read all about it in “The One that Stayed”.

But, unfortunately, it did not stay.  Mommy had some problems with it.


The part that I was supposed to drink from got a black ring around it.


The ring went the whole way around the bowl.  And the area by the intake valve had some icky stuff on it.


The filter compartment got a cloudy slime on the walls.  Mommy said it reminded her of a fish tank and there was no way she was letting me drink out of it.


That was fine with me.  I was glad to see it go.  I didn’t like the water from it anyway.  Now I have this water dish.


Mommy says it holds 2.5 gallons of water.  It has a nice big opening to add the water.


This cap twists onto the big opening to keep the water from coming out too fast.


This is what the bottle looks like before Mommy puts it in the base.


And this is what I look like, happily drinking from my water dish after a great play session in the back yard.

Sometimes, you just should not mess with a good thing.

Puppy Kisses,



  1. Ewwwww. Icky mold. I don't blame your Mom for getting rid of that one!

  2. Hey Tanner,

    Glad your Mum found a good solution for you, don't think you'll be running out any time soon!

    Have a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  3. I was thinking of your water the other day when I was in Petco and I was wondering how you were doing with it! I saw a whole display of dispensers and was thinking of taking the plunge into buying one. But, we didn't. :) Glad you're able to enjoy the water after your playtime!
