Well Riley has developed a lovely new habit of drinking water from the toilet bowl, even though he always has fresh water in his own bowl. I tried closing the lid, he opens it with his nose. I try shutting the bathroom door, he figured out how to turn the knob to open it!!!!! Ugh! Why does he have to be such a dog??? lol
LOL you'll have to get over it. My crew drinks out of the toilet too. We keep the lid down and they just lift the lid right back up. We also have fresh water for them but nooooooo they have to drink from the toilet. Mine have been doing it for years. It hasn't killed them yet so I guess it's fine. Just make sure you don't have cleaners like 2,000 flushes or whatever it's called.
Have you ever had a real rough night and felt how cold the side of the bowl is?
I am guessing that is the fascination.
I have two shorties who can't really reach too well without falling in so they aren't really interested. My cats on the other hand, love it. And would rather drink out of it then the bottled water they get in their clean bowl daily.
Around here, we have to make sure the toilet is flushed and sparkling clean at all times *shrug*
My Dog rocky jumped into the bath with me once.He is a bullmastiff so you can imagine it was quite a shock. He scared himself so much , he jumped out and run around like a madman(or dog)LOL My other dog Misty jumps on the trampoline with the kids. It is really funny to watch.
My aunt's cocker spaniel will only drink from the toilet. They're in quite a dilemma right now, since they just bought a new house in Palm Springs that has much higher toilets, so Buffy can't reach them. For now, Buffy is staying with my cousin at their old house, but they're not sure if she will adjust to drinking water from a bowl.
Ha ha! Merphy goes through an entire bowl in one drink...not because he drinks it all, it all goes in his beard. And then he wants to cuddle! I need a raincoat!
