Tongues were wagging at 7th and Montana this morning as Neighbor Nicole showed off her latest gadget: A Doggie Water Bottle, ideal for giving pets a quick drink on-the-go. The concept is simple: A small, plastic "trough" is attached by a hinge to an ordinary water bottle. When you turn the bottle upside down, the "trough" is filled with enough water to satisfy any dog's thirst. She demonstrated it on her Golden Doodle, Bernie. "That's amazing," said Robin, "What a great idea!" "Yes," said Nicole, "I really need it. If you can believe it, the other day one of the Rangers in Palisades Park chased me all the way down the street, yelling at me for letting Bernie take a drink from the water fountain." She went on. "It's not like those fountains are clean, anyway. Minutes after Bernie was done drinking from one of them, a pigeon swooped-in and took a bath in it." "Sheesh," I replied, "Don't the authorities have anything better to do than chase after you for letting Bernie take a drink?" I can't imagine what put them in such a state of High Alert ...!

What a neat idea! I rather have a doggie drink out of the drinking fountain then a pigeon taking a bath in it.

So, in other words, it's a combination bird bath and portable dog bowl...maybe it can also serve as a finger bowl?
