    It's a risky place this dog's water bowl! :eek: 

    This beetle wasn't in a rip, but just couldn't swim through this stuff or find a way out.

    So I rescued him (her?). :smile:

    Meanwhile, Toby (our Foxy Pug) was too busy 'day dreaming' to notice a beetle was having a paddle in his water bowl.

    Ah, he's seen it & will stay clear of that hungry, hairy beast.

    I hope it was entertaining enough for you. ;)
