    The WHO strongly recommends to wash your hands as often as possible. Drinking the same water you used for washing is most definitely a bad idea, but this pup has its own system of keeping hydrated.

    An amusing pooch has been filmed 'inspecting' water from the water dish with its paws. The doggo 'kneads' the water for a couple of seconds before finally proceeding to drink it. In fact, this behaviour is not so uncommon among dogs and it happens for various reasons: they see something in the bowl that attracts their attention (could be their own reflection), they want to cool their paws if it is too hot or they could just be doing it for fun, because they are bored.
