Teal'c is my first dog "close to the ocean" and therefore it is the first time that I have to deal with that problem... Everytime we go the the doggy beach he drinks so much seawater that he get's a good clean out of it. The water literally comes out everywhere. He doesn't seem to mind and he isn't sick afterward. When we get home he drinks heaps of water and after a few pees it's all good again. I was just wondering if it can do any damage I can't see?! Thanks heaps! PS: he does not actually drink it on purpose but he loves being in the water, catching his ball, swimming and diving (yep, we are still talking about a Staffy, not a Labrador!!)... I think mostly it get "in" when he brings his ball back. Now, I could stop that but that is why he is there in the first place... sigh.
