Do you have a water softener? I do and Skye didn't like the water.

I'm in the county, on a well.

If I got the water from the outside faucets (that did not go through the softener) she loved it.

I kept a jug filled in the fridge for her.

We have softened water but we have a faucet in the kitchen that isn't softened. We don't drink or cook with softened water, so that is the water she gets.

Didn't drink water other than what I put on her food yesterday. Snow is all gone so she was constipated yesterday.

She did manage to tip a large bowl of water on the floor this morning doing her I am starving dance when I bring her food bowl to the feed spot.

Oh my gosh, I can't stand when they knock over the water bowl... its always such a mess eek

Could it be that she's getting water other places besides her bowls? You might want to consider a doggie fountain. I understand they drink move moving water than they do water that just stands there.

Val,
I have the opposite problem...

OK OK didn't want to steel your thread. so I'll put that in a new one. Hope your Diva starts drinking appropriate beverage in adequate quantity soon.

Today's water consumption update. Since the snow is gone Neilla is drinking a little water (mix with City water and well water, but MUST be cold). Still not where I would like to see her water consumption, but at least she is drinking several times a day.

As the Lack of Water Consumption Turns.

Neilla doesn't care to drink water in the house. We have now discovered since it is a tad warmer that she likes to drink out of a pail outside. Will bring the same pail inside and she won't touch it. She knows where the water pail is set up now and when we take her out to potty once she is done IF she is thirsty she will head to the water pail and drink.

This girl is defiantly a riddle.
