Do you know who a man’s best friend is? Dogs. No matter how ugly men get, now matter how smelly we are, or how long our beard grows, Fido will always love us with every bit of his heart. If you are a cat guy… well, just stop reading this website altogether. You won’t be able to relate to anything we write anyways. There are certain things we should try to make an effort with these amazing animal friends of ours and it doesn’t include buying them diamond studded collars or super expensive doggy treats. The reason we love our dogs is because they are simple animals much like men. They want food, water, affection, and if it is possible to keep their testicles. Those simple things should translate over to the gifts we give them which include what they eat food out of everyday.
Would you eat out of the same bowl day in and day out? Maybe if it meant you didn’t have to do any dishes ever again but for most men, they would want some variety. We found a cool little DIY dog bowl on Design Sponge that took a wood crate and created a cool elevated water and food bowl. If you have a larger dog, you know how it is important to keep their backs strong to extend their life and continue to be your best friend. A lot of the dog bowls out on the market are pretty low to the ground which can cause some struggles for larger dogs that have to lean over and eat out of these low dishes. If you have any of the little ankle biter dogs that constantly yip, you probably don’t have to worry about this but you could still hook them up with a cool food and water bowl too. This DIYer used a wooden crate they found but if you found some old wooden wine racks or old school milk crates they might be turned into a very cool gadget for your dogs.
A DIY project will always make you feel better once it is complete but it will be even more fulfilling when you see your best friend not having to lean over when eating.
