Ever since my dog started showing signs of arthritis last winter, I began making small changes for his comfort.

One of those changes was to raise the food and water bowls.  I’ve been using boxes while I kept an eye out for raised bowl trays.  Those trays are either really expensive or really ugly.  Or both.  So I kept using boxes for the three bowls in my house (her food bowl, his food bowl, and their water bowl)… until now.

I was in Ross when I spotted three fish bowl stands for the average price of one ugly raised tray.

The perfect size for holding a bowl.

Now my dogs look almost ridiculously stylish eating out of their pretty white bowls sitting on their stands.  Some pretty placemats would complete the look.

Don’t think I won’t do it.
