Who Owns the Zebra Puzzle

Who own the Zebra Riddle
On a city block there are five houses in a row, numbered from left to right, each of a different color and inhabited by men of different nationalities, with different pets, drinks and cigarettes. You are given the following clues:

* The Englishman lives in the red house;
* The Spaniard owns the dog;
* Coffee is drunk in the green house;
* The Ukrainian drinks tea;
* The green house is immediately to the right of the ivory house;
* The Old Gold smoker owns snails;
* Kools are smoked in the yellow house;
* Milk is drunk in house #3;
* The Norwegian lives in house #1;
* The man who smokes Chesterfields lives in the house next to the man with the fox;
* Kools are smoked in the house next to the house where the horse is kept;
* The Lucky Strike smoker drinks orange juice;
* The Japanese smokes Parliaments;
* The Norwegian lives next to the blue house;

Now, who drinks water? And who owns the zebra?
