Go Get a Drink of Water


Originally uploaded by RebekahF

Abner loves to play, and play, and play. But due to the fact that several years ago we nearly lost him to a heat stroke, we make sure that when he plays ball he drinks water on a regular basis. One to keep him hydrated and cooler, but also to make him take a break from running, running, running. But Abner doesn’t like to get a drink of water, he wants to play, and so he’ll run towards the water bucket, but not actually get a drink. Sometimes he’ll wag his tongue over the water, but not actually touch the water.

I swear he’s like a 3 year-old thinking he’s fooling mom and dad. Oh yes, I really did eat those brussel sprouts, but yet they’ve just been moved around on the plate.

Nick is holding is ball under his feet, not letting him play until he gets a drink. Eventually he did get a drink, and play resumed.

Hope you enjoy the little video of him.

    He is so cute!! You’re so mean to him, making him drink when he wants to play. πŸ™‚ I love that little hopping he did. And tag! He tagged the bucket twice! lol. What a cutie pie.

    You know how the old saying goes …

    You can lead a horse (dog) to water, but you can’t make him drink.

    My goodness Abner’s tongue is the size of a bath towel.

    What on earth is Django sniffing in the background?

    LOL. Gracee is next to me “talking” to him. Not that she’d do any better.

  6. Sydney says:

    Silly Abner.

    He really thinks he’s getting away with something, doesn’t he? What a hoot! You’d think with all that panting, he’s be happy to get a drink!

    Labs are such silly dogs, but they are my favorite breed.

  9. Christy says:

    Darn – my employer blocks the video so I can’t watch the clip. I’ll have to check it out later tonight. I’m sure it is adorable.

    So cute watching Abner “tag up” at the water bucket! You guys are too funny with you laughing at him when he doesn’t get the drink. JR used to go climb into a sheep water trough and cool off. He’d lay down in it, slurp up a few swallows of water, then stand up shake and off he’d go again for more fetch. Daisy learned that from him – although she’d never lay down in the water, she’d just stand there and cool off for a few seconds.

    I’m amazed that he even knows what you’re talking about…getting a drink. Smart dog!
