When we replaced the kitchen and breakfast room floors, we moved Thor's dining station off the breakfast room floor, and into the kitchen (which remained tile). A few years back, I had stopped at a house I passed often to learn about their Great Dane, Jeffrey. I had observed that they had Jeffrey's bowls elevated. We did this for Thor's water, which is outside. Since I found two empty plastic buckets left in the kitchen after my son had mixed the mortar in which he set the tile, we stacked them and put Thor's food bowl atop them. Appearances of this photo notwithstanding, this has made him a neater eater, and I think he eats more, too.
Anyway, after letting Thor out yesterday morning, I noticed something strange in his food bowl.
Look what a closer examination revealed!
When Thor returned from frolicking in the yard, he raced over to his bowl, rescued Larry, and trotted around the table twice before settling down for a nap.
And when Mark got up yesterday, having slept late because he was sick, his friend gave him a big doggie hug and kiss.
Happy Thorsday, everyone!
