Today was our monthly Colorado Greyhound Adoption Meet and Greet. We had a lot of errands to run first so despite mom’s best efforts to not have to use the bathroom, she definitely had to go once we got there. (I refer you to Adventures in the Petco Bathroom Vol 1 and Adventures in the Petco Bathroom Vol 2 for why she tries to avoid taking us into the bathroom.)
We got into the bathroom, which was luckily not occupied. We went into the big stall on the end.
Daytona bolted in first, and spotted something he had never noticed before.
A big, white bowl. Mama called it a “toilet.”
We are not allowed in the bathrooms at home, so this was an EXCITING NEW THING!
He peeked in the bowl and it had WATER! This was very convenient since we had been snarfing down treats for the last two hours and were very thirsty. And best of all, it had white tissue paper floating in there.
Daytona was about to lunge for the intriguing wet paper when mom caught him and (rudely) yanked him away.
Mama was totally disgusted and grossed out.
Then she pulled a lever and the coolest thing EVER happened!
The water SWIRLED! And the paper went around and around and around just daring us to catch it!
At this point we were both staring in rapt fascination into the magic swirling water bowl.
Sadly, mama didn’t let us even let us get close to the water. Something about “toxins” and “disgusting” and “germs.”
We had to get our water from a plain old stainless steel water bowl.
We are still very interested in this “toilet” and plan to investigate extensively.
After a nap.
Because it is tough to be loved, adored, petted and given treats for two whole hours and we are very tired.
A note from Coffee & Daytona's mama: Mid way through this disaster, someone came into the restroom. Apparently they heard me having a conversation in the stall and they promptly left. I can only assume that once again my dogs made me look like a complete crazyperson.

Har har har!!!
Since you were at Petco, then the person probably has pets, and understands that your human isn't crazy, but keep up the good work. It is always fun to make our humans look nuts.LOL
