    Once again,,, Princess Gracie is different..... beginning to wonder if she is bulldog or not.... She doesn't slobber when she drinks!!!! A couple of drops come off her lips when she backs away but nothing like some of you are describing....
    We rinse and refill her bowl when it is empty which is once a day. And we don't give her icy cold water as Ive heard that isn't good for them.

    Had heard of someone using those filtered water systems and it worked but no idea who now. I am curious about them but not sure it would work. Cutty is a slobbery drinker also. Miila nd Mugsy are more dainty in their drinking but cutty gets down in there and slurps it up like a beast. lol

    I use a ceramic bowl that gets dumped, washed, & refilled once a day. Gravy isn't a horribly slobbery drinker, but there's enough slime to warrant a daily wash & refill. And he always leaves little pieces of mooshy dog food floating in there. I came this <----> close to picking one of those gallon watering jugs up at Tractor Supply, but I had a flash of slobber & floating dog food & quickly changed my mind.

    Yep thanks to Wilson and his slobber and food, dirt, etc. particles he leaves behind the 5 gal water bowl I had is now sitting in my basement. I have a decent sized bowl now and change it twice a day. It used to be a pain but I've adapted now, lol. He can really mess a bowl up with that hippopotimuas mouth he has.

    Having seen real hippos in a river in South Africa, I can testify to the giantness of those grand hippo mouths!

    we have one of those no spill bowls. its stainless steel and has a plastic collar type rim that snaps on. it does a perfect job of keeping the water in the bowl and always kinda wipes her jowls as she pulls away, so she isn't so wet after drinking. and she only really drinks water after she eats or after she plays hard outside. so we usually only change her water at meal times (2x a day)

    looks my Wilson's mouth. How awesome to have seen a real hippo in its environment.
