Thrifty Tips from Harvey & Jackson - Mealtime!

Hi friends, we're always looking for creative ways to save money (so we can buy more stuffies!), so we thought we'd share a couple of our mealtime tips.

Greyhounds do better with raised feeders, and there are lots of different types to choose from. Some are utilitarian, some fancy, but most are a little pricey. The raised feeder we use is a $4.98 wrought iron plant stand from WalMart. It works great, and with the right bowl, it's quite sturdy! We use an upside down pet food bowl with rubber skids with another plastic bowl set inside.

Now, if you have a food gulper (yes Jackson, that's you!), there are ways you can slow down your chow-hound. You can put rubber balls or unopened food cans in the bowl, but we found that to be messy. Or you can purchase a brake-fast bowl, which is a bowl with plastic nubby parts. Or, you can use our trick... A rubber jello mold (we found ours on sale at Target - $4.98).

So there you have it... a couple of mealtime tips from H&J!
