Does faucet water taste better?

My dogs have a strange fascination with watching me while in the shower...  Well, not just me, anyone really...  Normally Rogue will be the main culprit...  You will be just minding your own business taking a nice warm shower, when all of a sudden you feel a cold breeze!  And yep, Rogue's peeking her head into the shower again!  I think it started when she realized there was water in there and started licking the walls.  She definitely won't go into the shower, but doesn't mind getting her head wet as long as she can lick the water.

Today, Storm decided that she wanted to see what all the fuss was about.  Luckily, she couldn't figure out how to get her head into the shower.  She just got her head in between the decorative shower curtain and the inner liner.  So, lucky for me, no cold breeze!

But, besides the shower peeping... both dogs have an absolute fixation with drinking water directly from the faucet - namely the bathtub faucet.  Storm started this early on in her life, and will always put 2.5 of her feet into the tub and wait for me to turn the faucet on.  Yep, I said 2.5 feet - which means her two front feet, and then one of her back legs is partially in - resting on the edge of the tub.  :)  Rogue always waits near the side of the tub and drinks alongside with Storm.  I don't get it - why??  Does the water from the faucet taste any different than what I put in their water bowls?  Even when their bowls are completely filled, they still go crazy when someone is near the bathtub and will stand there waiting for you to turn on the faucet...

I think the nice benefit to this fixation of theirs is that it helps me know when the water bowls are empty.  Whenever this has occurred, and Storm is thirsty, she will go into the bathroom on her own & jump in the tub and wait.  So, if you are somewhere else in the house & you hear nails clicking on the tub... you know Storm is thirsty & her bowl is empty!  :)

  1. My KC does this too!! she doesn't seem too interested in bowls of water - she'll jump in the tub and scratch the drain until we turn on the water for her! She's been doing this ever since she was a puppy - we can't figure it out either LOL
