Drinking problem?

We seem to have an elephant in the living room, and everyone pretty much ignores it completely. So fess up, who's dog has a drinking problem?

One of mine does. Bad
I've considered support groups, etc.
If anyone has suggestions let me know.

PS. Thank you selzer. I know the first step is admitting there's a problem but I hated to be the one to bring it up.

Ok, now I wish I made it a public poll where I could see user names. I want to know who has a tidy drinker, and what lines the dog is. I am thinking this has to be genetic...

OH whew.
Mine just chokes and gags up some of the water he drank. So he makes a mess elsewhere than the dish.
There's no option for that!

Definitely not a tidy drinker. There's usually water all over the floor. She takes big gulps and leaves a nice path of drip marks as she walks away that I always end up stepping in.

Yes, I have a drinking problem. I want a Margarita and am too tired to go make one!

As far as Hans is concerned, he manages to make a watery mess on the floor and along the wall even with a Buddy Bowl.

His water lands on the floor all the time. Kaos also likes to shake his head right after so the water goes every where. I put in new cherry kitchen cabinets and hardwood floor in the kitchen so his bowl is in the family room....

Kaos 8/6/2003-5/18/2013 Things not what they used to be. Missing one inside of me. Deathly lost this Cant be real. Cannot stand this H*ll I feel. Emptiness is filling me. To the point of agony...
