I asked my son to give the dog, Peanut, a drink from the hose. This dog has had a rough time since we lost our older dog a few weeks ago. Peanut, who ate everything and anything, has now become quite finicky. Even getting him to drink has been a challenge. But, we've seen improvement recently, and of course, he likes the hose. I guess it's the water in his bowl that's the problem.
