i had also faced the same thing with my lab, when i brought my lab he was merely 18 days old and i used feed him cerelac and whenever i used give him plane water he simply refused to drink it..but as the summers arrived i started to drank water.So, no need to worry if you are feeding him a liquid based food as becoz this liquid will fulfill his water needs and i m sure he will also start to drink water in coming summers...
Next thing that as you are telling he simply swallows carrot without chewing, dogs stomach has some enzymes that grabs nutrition from without digesting it completely that's why your dog poops out carrot as it is, at the age of one month a puppy doesn't know how to chew but later when you will include some solid food in his diet then he will also starts to chew.(to improve his chewing you can give him bone{soya bean bones}available at every vet medicine shop). I hope this will help you a lot and no need to worry my friend all these things are normal.:)

Try to mix Yogurt/Curd or glucose in water, he will drink.

If you really want him drink water just add 2-3 pinch of cerelac in warm water and give him that water to drink. He will once smell it and then will start drink it.
