and, voila! We have a rustic, handmade dog bowl stand for a fraction of the cost of those in specialty stores!
It took the dogs a little while to get used to it, but the cats had no issues. Even though there are multiple water bowls all over our house, much easier to access than this one, this is the preferred watering hole.
Not only is it an excellent watering hole, it makes a mighty fine resting perch!
