Yeah, it makes absolutely no sense at all. I thought at first it was because she was hot and enjoyed being wet so I brought out the hose... my 4 mo. old pup loved it but Eden (13 wks.) wanted nothing to do with it, so I got out the baby pool still no interest from Eden guess the water bowl is the pool of choice! LOL I have threatened to get her a trough like is used for cattle just so she will not be able to splash it all out. It kind of worries me for when I am at work. I do not want her to go that long without water in this heat.
