Gunga Din

One of the many repetitive, boring, suck-the-life-out-of-you chores that I perform on a daily basis is feeding the animals. The cats have a cat feeder in the laundry room that needs to be filled about once a week. Caymen, the little dog, gets special food once or twice a day and Boodreaux, the huge dog, has a bowl that gets filled every couple of days. Next to Boodreaux's food bowl is a water bowl that all the animals drink from and it has to be filled about four times a day.

Obviously, it's a pain to fill the damn water bowl four times a day. However, there is a better way. The bowl has a special hole built into it that will take a 2-liter bottle turned upside down. This cuts down on the bowl-filling quite a bit, especially since Boodreaux won't drink out of the water bowl as long as the 2-liter bottle is attached.

He's a huge dog, pushing 80 pounds and yet he's apparently scared of a Coke bottle. The really freaky thing about it is that he has no problem eating from his food bowl which is also right next to the bottle. This is a dog who will drink from a toilet bowl while it is flushing! There's just something about the quiet glub-glub sound that the bottle makes when you drink the water down that he just finds disquieting. So disquieting that he will refuse to drink at all until he can go outside and lap up the dirty, stinky run-off from the air conditioner. This morning he decided he must go drink outside at 5:45 a.m.

So, it's back to filling the bowl four times a day. Yippee.
