Drinking from dog bowls...
« on: July 31, 2005, 05:28:39 pm »
I just recently went to the store and picked up a dog bowl for myself. Being related to canines, it seemed apropriate to drink from a dog bowl in the absence of a running stream. Does anyone else do this or am i opening a new can of furry habit?

People here do feel they are emotionally or spiritually related to animals....but....

Being the human that you are...Your not exactly physicaly able bodied to drink from a bowl.

I prefer bottles.

I've tried to drink from a dog bowl before. It's hard to do lacking a muzzle.

yea. i get most on my shirt when i try to 'lick it up'. maybe i put it off wrong. I drink water/milk/juice/whatever, like you would to milk after you eat cereal. I try to lick up water sometimes, but like i said, i don't get much in my mouth. I think i just enjoy the fact that it is a dog bowl im drinking from and not a cup. Im odd like that i guess...

Well anyway...*tailwaves**takes a swig from his bowl*

done it before, but didn't exactly have much luck.  I couldn't lap very much water up, because of not having an actual muzzle.  ended up just sticking my head halfway in and sucking it up.  decided that it was far easier and more efficient to just grab a glass from the kitchen and pour water into that, so I don't do it anymore.

however, if it helps any, whenever I'm out walking and I come across a river that's not brackish and is running at a decent rate, then I'll lean over and drink straight from that.  either that, or whenever I have an empty water bottle with me I'll fill it up in the stream.  I know it's not exactly the safest thing to do, but I hope my saving grace would be that both don't occur very often.

I'm human, not built for drinking out of a bowl or a bucket. I too will drink out of a river as long as it's far enough from civilization to not have flown through a pasture or collect pesticide runoff.

Well, even the human tongue isn't designed for that either. Aren't animal's tongues anatomically different and able to trap more water? At first glance it seems like it'd be a cool furry thing to do, but in practice, like you said, end up grabbing a glass of water, lol.

Tried it...so did not like it. Sticking with glasses and bottles.

*Shakes his head*  I'd personally have no interest in trying it.  As others have said, we are not anatomically built to drink from a bowl.

As whether it's wrong ...*shrugs*... I don't think it will hurt you and it certainly doesn't hurt anyone else so if you like doing it, go for it.  You will probably get some weird looks if you ask for your water in a bowl the next time you go out to a restaurant, but if you don't mind the odd looks, then go for it.

o.O reminds me of older times, when alchohol was served in large bowls instead of glasses... but those were wider and not as deep...

enough, as to trying it myself? only cereal... and in cereal bowls... milk is surprisingly clingy, but I have filled up a bowl with cool-aid before and drank it in the aformentioned style... (I was messing with my friends and told them it was wine, that I was imitating the past.. thats a story for another time though)

If dogs had opposable thumbs they'd use cups like us instead of a bowl. It's just that much more efficient. So unless you're imagining that you're a quad I don't know why you'd bother with that.

Carry on I suppose. Just uh.. wear a bib or some shirt you don't care about while doing it. '<img'>

unless you are endowed with a extreemly long tounge, drinking properly from a dog bowl is quite a task, and therefore pretty much pointless.

so I take it you're the only one that can do it and it not be pointless?  ':p'

*shrugs*  I don't think it's wrong, considering that nothing bad is coming from it, but I don't think I'd do it myself.

Well, once when I was drunk in High school..... some idiot decided to pour my booze in a bowl, and, considering how out of it I was, I did it. Not my proudest moment.
That, and I ate a milkbone once when I was stoned. I think I was trying to prove a point to someone, but I'm not really sure. Those two things are the only things I ever did like that. And I have no intent to repeat either. Note that I was in an altered state both times. I'm not the type to do that normally. Or so I think...... '<img'>

I only try 'lapping' a beverage when I pour too much in a glass for it to be moved easily. Haven't tried it dog-bowl style, though. Don't have the toungue for it ':p'

'<img'>  as fun as it sounds I gotta say that we are just plainly not built for the act of lapping. I think I'll just stick to a glass. It's much easyer.

 ---=Nikko=---

P.S. I think that if we were anthro we would not actualy lap up anything. That's some of the joy of being a primate.

*Crooks head strangely* Ugh....a dog bowl?  

While I certainly don't see anything wrong or harmful with doing it, I know I'd be giving a *very* strange look if I saw someone trying to drink from one.  That's a little too strange for my blood.

yea.... i guess you're right...not much i guess i can say. I do it more for symbolism... I dont try to actually lap up water much, i more or less just tip it and drink from the side. I tried to clarify in an early post, but anyway. Sorry to freak you all out, but I drink from cups and bottles more so than a bowl. Its just a once and awhile thing.... ':blush:'
