Story I - how ridgebacks drink

Life with ridgebacks

part one

Our ridgebacks have developped their own drinking habbits. They prefer either fresh water from the tap or very stagnant one. Water bowls only have an alibi function here.


In summertime the favorite drinking spots are 

  • watering cans
  • the water hose in the garden
  • the pond
  • puddles

learning at an early age

are tadpoles nutricious?


All time favorite - and thus only used by the dogs - was our Bidet. I do believe that our dogs thought this was a trough especially designed for them. ;o)


Every day I would have to walk to the bathroom a few times to open the tap of the bidet. Especially Chipo and Amboni did try to get my attention loudly, while Bakima might wait for an hour silently until somebody noticed or until she gave up.
