Shortly after we adopted our Boxer, Goya, from a local shelter I was walking up the stairs and heard a noise coming from the kitchen. When I went to investigate I found Goya standing comfortably on her back feet, using her front feet to stablize and push the ‘water’ button on the fridge, drinking the water as it came out. After an initial visit to the vet, we were told that she has partial kidney failure and because of that will have an insatiable appetite for water.. but to us, she’s just ‘special’ and we love her thirsty-and-self-suffiencent or not.
Sure beats the toilet! Smart dog. Hope she is ok.
What a smart girl!
Pretty genius if ya ask me!
she’s a beautiful girl! Beauty and brains!
Now that is “Thinking outside the box”!
or thinking outside the “bowl!”
That is so cute! She must have known how important it is for her to drink lots of water. What a smart girl!

Love this! Have seen posts of Great Danes drinking from water fountains and using ice maker on fridge but LOVE this girl taking care of herself 🙂
Glad you found each other.
Just out of interest, if she is drinking a lot, it could be diabetes……worth checking out
It says in the description they did check it out, its partial kidney failure.
Aware of the kidney issue, but my boxer had the same issue of kidney failure and diabetes. The diabetes made her drink and drink, which pushed along the kidney failure…..
I master bated to this
