Serving Bisket

Time slips by way too fast. It wasn't that long ago our oldest dog, Bisket, was a pup that bugged, my now deceased, Cocobear non-stop. On Coco's last trip to the beach, I took this photo of my "Girls on the Beach". Coco was almost 16 years old (a long life for a big dog). Well now, Coco's been runnin' in the wheat fields on the other side for about seven years and Bisket has taken her place as the grand dame of the house. I don't think Bisket is gonna make it as long as my Bear. She has a hard time going out for walks, now. Most recently, she started having trouble eating with her bowl on the ground. We even had to switch over to mixing her dry food with Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul. That right, it's as expensive as the name makes it sound, but she's been a good girl and deserves to enjoy everything her life has left.
Which brings me to my first project. Eve
n though the shop is far from ready, Bisket needs something decent to eat off of. I mean,C'MON! This is pathetic!!!
So, ready or not, time to draw up something for the old girl, so she doesn't have to eat off a box of flourescent light bulbs!

Very cool project Vic. My dogs are in need of a new raised bowl holding deal. I can't wait to see what you come up with so I can steal your design! :) j/k. But I might build one with you.

Why is it that dog stories pull at your heart strings so much? I guess anyone who has ever had a close relationship with a dog (or any pet for that matter) would understand. Its awesome to see folks who care for their 4-legged buddies as much as we do!

After I see if I can crank out some decent content, I'll submit for a spot on the WoodWhisperer Network.
I think I've got the design worked out...I'll post it soon.

Vic -

That is a neat project! I really like the story and the photo of your girls on the beach.
