Now that my poodle buddy is older, his back is hunched and its hard for him to go up the stairs. One of the things our vet mentioned was that it helps poodles (and all dogs) if they dont have to reach for their food (ie. if the bowls sit on the floor.) So we got buddy this really cute expandable/collapsible bowl that sits in a feeder, so its kind of like a dog table. We got ours at petsmart but I think you can get them most places that sell dog products, or online. I've been recommending it to all my friends b/c I wish we had gotten Buddy one sooner so maybe his back would not hurt so bad. You can see what I'm talking about at www.popwareforpets.com

Let me know what you guys think!

This is the one that Tynk and Zoey have lol! I love it. Is Buddy an spoo? I have been reading on here that there are reports of it contributing to bloat, so I am not sure I would want to get one for Ki-ki

Buddy is a Toy, what kind are yours??
I think you should get it for all your dogs! I haven't heard of any problems with bloating.

That is a very cute bowl set! I too have read different reports that higher food dishes are possibly a contributing factor to bloat (but we cant be certian on anything besides genes). I personally wouldnt use one for my standard, but toys dont really have a concern about bloat.
