The Corgi Fountain of Youth: Drink, Nap, and Be Lazy...
Soon Teggie will be drinking from the fountain! For a mom who values the natural child philosophy, our furkid sure is a material girl!
Honestly, I think our first Corgi might have invented this Dog-It Drinking Fountain years ago, when she pawed the water out of her dish and flipped it over every time I filled it... then drank out of my decorative fountain unless I stashed it on the bathroom counter. Now our little herder will have the time of her life licking ever-fresh, oxygen-rich, filtered water. Sure beats lapping out of the toilet bowl!
Check out this doggie drinking fountain, and the cute video of lots of Labs a-lapping. Our baby is small, so she will have to lick up the spillage, I guess. Anyway, it will be fun to watch, and we have extended family with chocolate Labs in case it turns out to be a lame idea for a dwarf dog.
We have finally framed my two new favorite Evie originals, "Royal Nap" and "Bean Bag Blob" by Evie Anderson, who paints her Corgi girls, Chloe and Gwenevere. I think these pieces exemplify why I want a dog's life. If I believed in reincarnation, I'd be working on building enough good karma to come back as a Corgi!
