An enduring mystery.

One of life's enduring mysteries. With the house full of freshly filled water bowls, why do the PONs choose to drink from a rusty old watering can ?

Bob continues to monitor the Christmas tree for signs of trouble.

Fresh pomegranates in the supermarket. The French call them 'grenades'. Tomorrow there will be pomegranate juice rather than orange juice for breakfast.

We look at the other produce but decide to leave it alone. As all Calvinists know '' If it's too exotic looking - steer well clear ". The PONs , it can be deduced, have not had a Calvinist upbringing.


  1. One of life's mysteries indeed - our Labs. are just the same, but preferably the bird's water !

  2. Well Bob and Sophie, I agree that rusty watering can water is pretty good, and definitely one up on that bland stuff humans put in our 'official' bowls, but have you ever tried puddles on the side of a busy road? Deliciously salty, with a bouquet of diesel oil. The Pomerol of the canine drinks cabinet, may I suggest?
    Toodle pip!

  3. Cats do that too. Avoid the fresh water to suck up the stuff at the bottom of the shower.

    Like you I avoid the fancy fruits too.

  4. Those fresh lychees look delicious. You don't know what you are missing out on.After all, it's all fruit.

  5. Bob and Sophie our humans will never understand how much we love exotic waters.
    A taste from heaven...nothing like that stuff that Mum drinks called Pellegrino...she gave me some one time and it was awful.
    Give me the outdoorsy stuff found on the ground by the downspout or puddles on the ground after the rain has fallen and the watering can water with its gnats and eau de manure...they don't know what they're missing.

  6. Love all of the exotic fruits. They're one of the real treats of the season for me since I don't really care for chocolate.
    Maybe the water found in odd places is the four footed equivalent of exotic fruits.
