So recently it has occurred to me that there are many other uses for a dog's water bowl, outside of leaving it for the dog, to quench his thirst. Allow me to share:
It makes for a great hand-washing station....Hygiene is important, and having an accessible water station helps.
Cheaper than a water table....water tables are great for sensory experiences, but why spend so much when you have your own at home.
Makes a great pool.....Have any Little People toys or dolls??? maybe they too need to cool down on a hot day!
Not only for dogs.....Sometimes little ones get thirsty too, and well, the mommy service at home is slow....EWWW
Gotta love my baby girl for teaching me all of these :)
