After a long hike, it is important to get a good drink of water, so you must get your head deep into the bowl.  Just don’t start drifting off to sleep, or the humans will take pictures of you.  Right, Qannik?  Q?  Q?

    Ahhh, drinking and passing out. Not usually associated with water, but still.

    After a long hike, that is the best way to drink water, lying down.:) I’ve been known to fall asleep like that. What about you all?

    Wooo! CM wants to know if there were any ice cubes in that to go water? She thinks it is a necessity to always have cubes in to go waters!

    Thats how Max eats! Lying down!!

    Get his head out of the bowl – he’ll drown!!!

    I just read the Frankencouch post. It’s hysterical!!!!! BTW, we both have the same kind of ‘favorite chair’! My dog, R, tried to take it over early in his life. I didn’t let him but he still likes to climb into my lap while I sit in it. A 55 lb lap dog!

    I think some pup was caught snoozing on the job! Qannik, you need to tell your humans to not overwork you so much! A pretty pup needs beauty sleep!
