PSA - I looked up why dogs can drink standing water and not get sick and the answer is - they can't!

Lepto.  But don't a lot of dog owners let their dogs do this?

When I'm walking Jake, I won't let Jake drink from the puddles or do anymore than sniff at organic stuff on the ground: I have a collapsible rubber dog bowl I clip onto a belt loop and a 20 oz. bottle water in an insulated holder on my belt.  When we reach certain benches along the route trails, we stop to get a drink.  Jake knows which benches are get-a-drink benches and walks to them off the trail as we approach them.  In one of the parks, a County Ranger is stationed at a checkpoint booth for cars entering the pay-only area (I have a Senior Lifetime Pass).  When she sees us walking by, she'll often call Jake over and give him a dog biscuit.
