Before you start thinking I bathe my dog in pink bubble bath while feeding her crustaceans on a silver spoon, let me explain…
I did hear that an elevated doggy dish was better for a dog’s digestion, and seeing as my canine has been eating in the corner out of dollar store dishes, I figured I would help her digestion, while adding a bit of sass to my kitchen corner.
Oftentimes she’ll hack after eating her food (not sure if it’s because I’ve been letting her eat at sea level for the entire time we’ve had her), but I thought I could try to help her somehow.
This is what her eating area typically looks like: a bit of an eyesore in the kitchen, if you ask me.
So, I found two sturdy candlestick holders from Goodwill for under $4; they had to be sturdy and not glass because when my dog is eating, she likens me at a buffet: a.wild.animal. Food would go flying, grunting would ensue, her face would disappear into the bowl – you get the unattractive picture.
Moving along, my holders, which were mismatched (just to keep things interesting), were given two good coats of Rustoleum’s Aqua spray paint in Satin.
When they were dry, I used Gorilla Glue to adhere the bowls to the candlestick holders.
