I know you like water, but the dog’s dish is not, I repeat – is not- a private indoor kiddie pool.
Daddy’s boots, though water resistant, don’t need to be tested daily for water proof-ness, and yes, they sink every single time. They won’t magically float tomorrow, or even the day after that. Physics, as a general rule, tends to be absolute.
It’s hard to understand now that when we won’t let you drink out of the dog dish, even though it’s water, we are looking out for your overall health. You’ll get that someday.
So, yeah. Stay dry, please 🙂 The animals, the floor, your parents, and anyone in a two block radius who can hear you tantruming when you are pulled from the water dish, will appreciate it.
