I was in Home Hardware in Athabasca the other day searching for some kind of 'hole saw' that Mark needed for his continuing remodel of the dog truck when I spotted this...
Since Kara, Bet, Bait and Tic have Mark and I filling their water dish a million times a day I thought this would be a great little purchase for the house.
Mark was quite taken with it when I arrived home, agreeing that it was a great find. I filled it up thinking just how handy this was going to be.
Kara and Bet looked it over and decided it was relatively harmless and that the odds of them not dying of dehydration (they are both fairly dramatic dogs) were better with it in the house.
All was well and peaceful until Kara took a big drink and began to walk away from the dish. 'BLURP' went the tank.
Kara shot across the floor with nails scrambling for purchase and terror in her eyes.
Bet had pretty much the same reaction the first time the water dish 'BLURPED' at her too.
Things have settled down a bit now. Kara and Bet aren't quite so startled by the 'BLURPING' water tank, although they still approach it suspiciously.
And Bait....well he is trying to figure out a way to add fish to the tank.
Never a dull moment!
