Yes, we totally get the eww factor, but we had to indulge Colin in his newfound passion for the dog dish just long enough to snap a few pictures. He's apparently learned (kind of along the lines of the cats who learned to drink out of the toilet) that there's always something available to quench his thirst - Rory's water dish. Rory could care less, she has to frequently share her dish with the cats (they even sneak her food sometimes), so no worries there. He leans over and drinks it up just like a dog. And he makes a nice watery mess all over himself in the process. Kind of gross, yes, but totally cute too.
