Adjusting to our New Dog

    Every dog is different.  With Mac our first dog, we could fill up his bowl and he would only eat when he was hungry.  He never got into our cat’s bowl.  Skye, our last dog, was more food oriented and was always looking for more food.  She would empty the cat’s food at every opportunity.  To prevent this I created barricade of my guitar amp and the cat’s carrying case, which kept Skye out of the cat’s food.
    That was the way things were when we brought our new dog, Lexi into the house.  Lexi, we discovered is extremely food oriented and spent the first hour in our house smelling out every molecule of food that might have been on the floor.  She soon discovered the barricade and got through it and ate all of the cat’s food.  We didn’t where to start feeding the cat, it had to be somewhere high so Lexi couldn’t get to it. 
    As you can see in the photo above, the cat feeding station is now located on my desk.  We couldn’t think of any other high place to put it.  Fortunately, our cat is quite adaptable and it doesn’t take her long to figure out where her food is.
    We are going to have to be very vigilant about food and Lexi, because she has a powerful sense of smell, and a powerful appetite to go with it.
