Thanks for the warning. Although, I had always been told to not drink scummy water. Very unfortunate for the dog and I can imagine hard to keep an animal away.

Noted. The E.P.A. was created during the Nixon Admin. because of so many problems just like this. So, why are things even worse?!

Thanks for posting this. I wonder if this might be the cause of the dog deaths in Ohio and Maryland.

Never let your kids or pets drink from water that you don't know. Always bring enough for everyone, Rover included.

thanks for the warning. Also, remember antifreeze leaks are deadly to birds, dogs, you name it. There is a brand that is non toxic (not sure of name).
