Our New Fancy Dishes

Look what mom bought us at Petco yesterday!
Our other once were showing signs of rust around the bottom and mom didn't like that so she tossed them!
These are much higher and pretty easy to eat out of! Gosh, we barely even have to lean over!
Yes, we are eating in a fireplace pit! We have 2 fireplaces in our kitchen and we've never used either one of them since we've lived here and it's been over 25 years! My crate used to be right in this exact spot and it stayed here for years until mom finally decided that I really wasn't using it anymore and put it away! Our food and water bowls used to hang off the side of my crate but once it was gone, mom had to come up with an alternative plan!
She even got Mitch's brakefast bowl to work although it really doesn't slow him down much!
That boy eats way too fast and mom is always quick to remind me that when I was younger, I did too!
Thanks, mom! You made it much easier on an older girl like me!
We love our new fancy dishes!

So until next time.............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

  1. how cool - you have the same tall borls I do - even the same color. Mom had to get me one of those because the long fur on my chest was always getting in my food. It makes it so much easier to eat and drink from.....glad you back from vacation.

  7. Those are pawesome (tall) bowls - that's for sure! Did you have a good trip home? Pretty cool to settle back into the old routine with a couple of sets of new contraptions to munch your dinner out of!

  15. Hi M and M
    Fancy fancy- no leaning over either and brakefast so no belly bloat? Does it churn ice cream too?

  16. Hi M&M...what great new bowls you have! I have a high one too-it does make it easier on our necks! Mom saw some pink piggies in your fireplace-are those your toys? Do they squeak???

  17. Great bowls! I don't have a problem with height, as I am vertically challenged. Our biggest task is finding a bowl that is shallow & yet big enough for me to fit my big head in! Oh, what's with the piggies? Is your mom trying to play some subliminal trick on you or something??

  19. They are really fancy! I used to eat way too fast too hee...slowing down now, probably with age.

  20. No wonder he eats so fast - did you notice there are two little pink pigs near your food bowls - thankfully you have the tall bowls now and those little pigs can't reach!

    Nice bowls - they are perfect for ice cream

    Lots of licks

  21. Those are great bowls. I agree that it's much easier to eat when the food bowl is raised a little. Do you every get into each others bowls?

  23. I have a raised bowl too. How can you possibly have your food and water so close and not get foodables in your water? You are neat eaters, huh?

  24. What cool bowls! We eat without bending over too much too. Our bowls sit in wrought iron stands and yes, the iron does rust, but the bowls don't. It must be really cool having 2 fireplaces in your kitchen. We no longer have ANY fireplaces. Our pawrents ripped ours out and replaced it with a ginormous window! It's okay though...the fire box was so shallow that we were afraid to actually have a fire in it!

  25. Cool new bowls - and you have your own personal water bowls too - we all share the same water bowl. We better discuss that with Mom and see if we can get our own.

  28. Good evening m & m
    It is a beautiful island.
    I love spectacle of the ship of seeing the morning sun.
    Of course, I also sympathize with the life of the island.

    New tableware is clean.
    It seems to be easy for being in a high place to eat and to eat meal for a moment.
    I also put on a high place for a moment, and give ume tyan meal.
    It is a wonderful discovery. :D

    from loved ume tyan

    PS-was just wondering if your Mom would have a recipe for green tomatoe chutney? We have lots of green tomatoes and are looking to do something with them!! They won't go red now!! Our email is cfwhooley@gmail.com (if you have any suggestions - many thanks!!) We have gone on-line and googled a few recipes but would love to know one that was tried and tested!

  33. Sky's special bumpy bowl has slowed him down when he eats so he won't bloat, but now Noah and Bailey each need one. They're starting to eat way too fast.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What very nice new bowls you have! You know Bailey and me don't like to complain but we are using old Harry's dishes!!!
    We think looking at your post it is time for us to have nice new dishes too!
    We will ask our mum.

  38. I'm really impressed with your dinnerware! It looks like the Ritz at your house. And I think bringing up the bowl height so that you don't have to eat near the ground is VERY thoughtful. Give your mom some huge kisses for that!

    I hope your bowls are brimming with cheesy goodness,
    Fenway

  44. Congrats on your new bowls. I have raised bowls too with adjustable legs so as I grew taller Mommy raised them. Hootie is so short his is only a little off the ground.

  45. Cool new dishes. I think my little sister eats too fast too. I, on the other hand, prefer to play with and than savor my food. I don't get to do that much anymore though since if I wait too long, Teagan will steal my food! The nerve of her! At least Mitch has some manners, right?
