As you all know by now, Misha is a bit "off". She has so many quirks. That's why we love her, I guess.\n \nI have metal dog bowls in a little stand. She does not like when her bowls are clean. When they are clean they are shiny. The water reflects light off the bowl. For some reason this unnerves Misha. \n \nI remember the first time I noticed this behavior. She was about 6 months old. I bought her new bowls. She approached them warily. She would try to drink the water, but each time she did, the reflection of the movement would startle her and she'd run off. It took about 3 hours before she was comfortable with the new bowls.\n \nI thought it had something to do with the new bowl smell. They were different, right? Wrong! Every time I have cleaned her bowls since then she goes through a short period of adaptation. The water moving in the bright, shiny bowls spooks her. She does eventually get over it. It takes about an hour now.\n \nDoes anyone elses dog have this problem?
