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.

Laying down, front feet wrapped around the dish, head resting on the bowl making it tilt and run down his face. Messy.

Actually Maiya is very "dainty" about her drinking.

Annabelle is a different story. She leaves a water slobber trail from the bowl to wherever she's headed.

The is always puddles of water on the kitchen floor and alot of wet spots on the carpet. I think it is just a GSD trait

Very unlady-like. She leaves a trail of dribble.

After a walk, she will 'falooomph' down in front of her bowl, hug it, and just slurp slurp slurp. Practically washes her face in it.

Sometimes she washes her paws too.

She used to tip the water bowl over, and made such a racket rolling her SS bowl all over the place.

All of mine are messy leaving water everywhere. It is almost like they leave more water on the floor than what they took in! My male is worse than any of them!

For the first 6 months that Lady Jane lived with us, she would stand next to our huskie at the water bowl and would lick his face after he drank. Now she makes a mess too.

Aida is very neat with her drinking. Her mess comes from when she steps in the bowl. Clod!

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.
