The Dawg is more mutt than most people would imagine. Milady likes to root plants, by the simple expedient of sticking clippings in a vase full of water. We've got a couple of vases under the hose bib in the back yard. The water turns a dull brown, sort of a tea of the clippings and the bacteria that grows in open water in warm Louisiana.
The dog loves it. He'd rather drink from a vase full of brown water than from his own water bowl.
I'm one of those guys who likes a good glass of iced tea, so I'm not one to criticize the dog for his taste in tea. If he likes it, I'll try to keep the vases full.
