Poor Bear, it can be hard for her to stand when she eats and a lot of times, she will just lay down. I get this catalog in the mail and there is a dog food bowl holder that elevates the bowls (for both food and water) and had thought about ordering it. Frankly, it didn’t look all that stable, but it was better than nothing. Tonight when I was feeding the dogs, I noticed one of the buckets that had an indentation on the bottom and I immediately thought, that looks perfect for holding her dog bowl so it won’t go sliding off in to the wild blue yonder. It worked! To me, she seemed more at ease eating standing up so now this will be her official dog food bowl holder (Greg, you can’t have it, it’s Bear’s!).
