Let me explain; instead of drinking the water catching it with my tongue, I just put my head into the water bowl and just open and close my mouth!
Results : there's water everywhere in the house except in my stomach!
Well, after my humans gave me 3 entire bowls of water I guess I manage to catch some of it, but still - it is quite an issue as I have and always had regular problems when it come to ahem-- doing the wee! The vet says it's because I don't drink enough - even though I always have fresh water in the house it is true I don't go to my water bowl very often on my own. (except when we go for a walk! I'm the BIGGEST drinker on earth then!)

But guess what ? Every time I start drinking, everyone starts laughing and making fun of me !! Not only my furry buddies but also their humans ! I can hear them - it's so embarrassing. My humans thought it was a great dane thing but my great dane friends just drink like normal dogs. Is there some of you here using my technique ?
Here the normal drinking technique :
Here's mine :
As you can see, no tongue out - and almost no water gone from the bowl ( except the water I drop on the floor !! ) ;-)
I guess asking about tips would be silly as no one could really "teach me" how to drink.
But eh, I feel good talking about it and I know YOU - my dear blog friend - are not going to laugh at my problem.
( oh, come on !)
