Hi,

I read un article which talks about Day of Dead in Mexico,
and i'm curious the term 'dog water' in the sentence :

In the morning mist that surrounds the lake of Patzcuaro, souls go back to where they came from, perhaps recrossing the dog water,
which according to legend, would have guided them during their first journey to the realm of the dead.

It is really the water for dog or somthing else?
Maybe some Mexican could help.

Thanks.
