The Water in the Blue Bowl is Better

For some odd reason, the blue bowl is the preferred water bowl. I don't know why. The pink bowls were purchased for Jujube. The tan and blue bowls are Loki's.

Every meal time, Jujube eats out of one of the pink bowls; Loki eats out of the tan bowl. After finishing his food, Loki drinks out of the blue bowl. Jujube goes away; she does not drink the water that is in the pink bowl. Instead, she waits until after Loki is done drinking, and then proceeds to drink out of the blue bowl. Here's a picture of her drinking out of the blue bowl.

Why is the water in the blue bowl better?

Maybe it makes them feel they are drinking from a blue sea. But, most likely, it is just to make you think about it, lol.

Maybe they like the color blue? Mika prefers the color blue over other colors. Blue is one of the few colors that dogs can actually see.

My Shiba girl had a thing about a pink bowl too. LOL. They are such a funny breed.

Mika -- I didn't know that blue is one of the few colors that dogs can see. That's interesting and useful to know.

If I wave a blue flag will that make them come to me? Maybe... or maybe not.

Eric and Kimi have separate bowls in separate rooms. They each eat out of their own food bowls, but both drink out of Eric's water dish. same bowls! guess the location makes the water taste better!

I bought my 2 a big bowl that has a reservoir tank. They prefer to drink water out of the cats tiny bowl - I also have multiple dog water bowls of varying sizes that they skip and go to the kitty bowl.
I think its a shiba thang :)

Because other people's water always taste better :)

I don't remember where I found out that dogs can see the color blue, but it made sense to me after noticing that Mika preferred blue things. I'm not sure if the shiba will come to you if you wave a blue flag, maybe worth a try. =P Anything to make the shiba come back.
