How Does Your Staffy Drink?

Do You Know the Way Your Staffy Drinks?

All the dog owners saw their pets drinking. And there is seemingly no secret about this simple mechanism. However, if you do a double take you`ll find out, that dog`s mouth becomes an ideal construction, that creates this amazing process!

When you look at your Staffy drinking water it seems to you that there is no certain scheme in this process. The dog just tries to "lick" the liquid and gargles. It appears that if a human being started drinking from a bowl he would do the same. However, it`s not the case! Dog drinking is an amazing process being created the very nature. Besides, cats and dogs drink in a different ways.

Staffy has a quite long, wide, but thus soft and very elastic tongue. So, the dog curves it invertedly and almost doubles it when drinks. Thus, Staffy forms a deep capacity like a bailer. Such a construction gets much water and sends it into the dog`s mouth at each water immersion of the tongue. 

It`s a real wonder, but the process doesn`t comes to an end at that! Probably, everyone who watched the dog drinking had also heard a noisy gargling when it did it. And all these sounds appear not because your Staffy is careless, but when the dog is chunking in water with its tongue it forms a water gage, a part of which it simply "bites off" and sends it to a mouth too.

Thus, Staffy not only bails water with its large bailer-tongue, but also swallows a part of that quantity of water which is formed under its chin when it drinks. In other words, the dog swallows almost twice more liquid, than you may seem at first sight.
