I picked Emily Post. We have metal bowls, and when Max was a puppy the sound of his collar and tags hitting the bowl would scare the bejeebies out of him. He stretches out & leans very carefully towards the bowl with his feet wide apart, licks very delicately, then backs away.
With my three, my kitchen is a MESS!!!! Theres usually pools of water within a six foot radius of the water bowl, then they step in it with dirty feet which then makes mud-mix that with hair they've shedded...well you guys can imgaine. Its not a pretty picture
Kacie and Clover are clean drinkers, and Onyx is a slobbering, water trail. She doesn't have the time to drink, she needs to get on with the next "job" while swallowing.... I didn't vote as they would cancel each other out.
Heidi's pretty neat (in more ways than one!) - she doesn't make a mess when she drinks. Now if I could only get her to stop putting one or two pieces of kibble on the floor when she eats, we'd be in good shape.
