Nino Likes Water

You are giving me water?


I sure can use some water.


Water tastes good.


How about some more water?


I am a Portuguese Water Dog, I love water.


My mama Julie loves me, she gives some of her bottle water to me.


Thanks for the water, I got to leave something behind to show my appreciation.
(See what Nino is doing in the shade).

Are we going home now?
