The Perfect Drinking Fountain

NOTE: My Editor has been after me for some of the sloppy writing (her words) in this blog lately.
Apparently if you do not have the photos to illustrate the particular point you are making -
the Editor thinks you should edit that part of the story out.

Case in point: The Doggie Drinking Fountain mentioned in the previous post.

I argue that it was part of the journey - and I explained why there was no photo. SHE DIDN'T TAKE ONE.
You see, the Editor, the Photographer and Mom are (of course) one in the same.

Why is it that Editors and Writers have and will always have "creative differences"?
I know, it's because "they" think they're in charge. Well listen here sister - there's wouldn't be a blog if I didn't have the original thoughts to put to paper and create something for you to EDIT! HA!

MOVING ON. I did a little research this evening and found a couple of photos in our archives that illustrate the "Doggie Water Fountain":

Due is demonstrating the refreshing aspect of a cool drink of water...
While I am showing you the benefit of being able to dump out the old water by lifting the metal tab (on the left side of the bowl) therefore allowing you to fill the reserve area with fresh water....AND CREATE A PUDDLE AT THE SAME TIME FOR EXTRA REFRESHMENT POSSIBILITIES.


There are several of these special fountains throughout the Park. I for one would like to thank the Central Park Conservancy for thinking of their canine visitors!

I love doggie water fountains! There are lots in Virginia along the George Washington Parkway! I'm so glad I found your blog! If you haven't already entered, be sure to enter my giveaway. I'm going to draw tomorrow night!

Hi there Abbey!! Nice fountain! We have a few around here, but not as fancy. You have such a fabulous park and park pal (Due!!!)... I must say that sounds tons better than my CAMP! But, if you come this way for a art & craft festival, we'll definitely do some playtime!!! :)

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Dear Abbey and Momma

It is so nice to meet you! Thank you so much for stopping by our blog and leaving such a nice comment for Callie! We understand from your comment that you are a cancer survivor so you know how ruff life is right now. Thank you so much for the good thoughts and prayers!

Lots of slobber,
Droopy and Callie
