The River Doris

We used to have a low, red, plastic water bowl in the kitchen. It's outside now and has been for years. Doris used to tilt her head when she drank out of it, licking the inside of the bowl, leaking as much water on the floor as she drank. And with the gentle tilt of the kitchen floor toward the back door, there would be a stream of water for 2 to 3 feet after she'd finish.

We switched the water bowl for a small bucket to fix the problem. But, right now, I'd give anything to walk through "The River Doris" in my sock feet. Anything.
