It's been such a long time since I've posted about anything that works. I'm sad to say that it's not because I've been lazy. :-/ Sometimes it seems that I could write a weekly post about stuff that doesn't work. But today, I have something that really works. :-)
Our dogs had been spilling their food. A lot. Sometimes I think it was an accident, but usually I think it was out of protest. They would spill their food, then they wouldn't eat it because it's dirty. This is frustrating, because they will eat alpaca (or horse or cow) manure, but not dirty kibble. :-/
We had been using the standard-issue, stainless-steel dog bowls that we've had for years. Until a few weeks ago. Hubba decided they HAD to have something better at the pet supply store.
So we went over and started flipping bowls. A clerk finally came over and asked if he could help us. :-)
We settled on these wide-bottom stainless-steel bowls...
You can't flip them over unless you pick them up... and since dogs don't have thumbs, they can't pick them up. ;-)
It's now been about two weeks since we've had to do our daily kibble sweep. Hubba thinks we'll save money on dog food. I think he might be right. ;-)
