Now With 50% More Dog Drool Than the Leading Brand

Over on his blog, my uncle Jeff posted about a rather unusual water bottle he came across at REI designed to let you share water with your dog while you’re out on the trail, noting the less than completely hygenic nature of such a product.  On one hand, I tend to agree that of all the things one might be inclined to share with their dogs, the water dish definitely isn’t one of them.  On the other hand, if you have excitable dogs like Imola and Minardi around, you probably stopped being horrified by their face-licking tendencies quite some time ago.  I think that a more likely problem with a product like this is getting a dog to actually use it in the first place.  I suspect that most dogs are not particularly concerned about the cleanliness of their water sources, and would probably be content to drink from whatever random puddle they happen to come across. On the other hand, if you’re concerned about this type of thing, why not just bring a separate dish for the dog to drink out of in the first place?
