We've all seen dogs drinking from water bowls (and, occasionally, a toilet). Have you ever wondered how the dog gets the water into his/her mouth, just by lapping it up with their tongue? Check out this brief clip of a German Shepherd taking a drink, recorded in super-slow motion. Amazing!

I had no idea their tongues turn 'downward' to create the 'scoop' that pulls the water into their mouth! Now I know why they get water all over the place when they drink! And please, always make sure your doggy has plenty of fresh water to drink every day!
