We have a dog, Sadie, and a cat, Lilo. Their food bowls and mats were getting old and nasty, so yesterday I set out to get some new ones.
Here is Sadie with her kayak.
So I went to a bunch of stores looking for ones where Sadie might not spill as much water and food. Unlike our last dog, Rissa, she won't eat what falls out of her bowl. She does however eat any other crumbs she finds around the house.
I found this one. Perfect. It's metal, great color, can be cleaned up easy and repainted when it get too gross.
Yesterday, running into the house after a day on the kayak, Sadie heads for her bowl. Dead stop and about face! Doesn't want anything to do with it. She won't even go into the kitchen. Hasn't eaten since yesterday morning before the big switch.
On the other hand Lilo, the cat, got two new white bowls with a clean mat. Doesn't seem to have a problem with them.
Sadie doesn't like change.
Thanks for listening.
