    Hi ddnene, I now put a chunk of frozen mango into his water bowl. That gets him going. Thank you for the advice.

    I was going to suggest pinching the skin to see if it stands upright or goes back down. When my cat was dehydrated, the skin would stay in the pinched state. I have to giggle because ......how would you determine it with the amount of extra skin a bulldog has? So I guess my advice isn't a good one.

    Bogey does not drink a lot of water. The only time he shows interest is when I am pouring it from the container into his dish- then he drinks it as it is pouring! ( I keep a gallon container of water in the fridge so it's food and cold). Sometimes I have to do that just so he drinks!!

    Wash out his bowl really well... and then pour cold water (we have it in our fridge!) Hershey and Gizmo go right for it, once it turns to 'room temperature' or has any 'floaties' they would rather not drink it (nor would I ! LOL) and some people overlook actually cleaning the bowls well. The stainless bowls get like a slimy film on them, that I us a dishrag on each time I wash it to fill it back up.

    Yeay!

    My dogs get ice cubes for treats (I'm trying to not give them too much food outside of their main meals). I basically give it to them like I'm giving them dog biscuits and they go chomp on it and swallow. A lot of times, ice chips fall to the floor and it is so funny watching them while they try to pick it up... the ice would melt before they succeed. Lol.

    I got Bullied and loving it!
