Hound Dog Bowl Tips
In 1954 Elvis cut his first record. Hips swiveled, girls swooned, parents shook heads and “You Ain’t Nothing but a Hound Dog” became a super hit. Today, if your hound dog is “cryin’ all the time” because he tips over his bowl or tangles his chain in the yard, we’ve got a solution.
First, to keep bowls from tipping over outdoors, use angel-foodcake pans, putting the raised center hole over a stake in the ground. When pups go round over and over, a simple pivoting tether makes a happier Rover.
Remove the wheel of a plate-type ball-bearing caster by cutting the axle with a hacksaw. Drive a 4×4 post firmly into the ground and screw the plate onto it. Use a bolt the size of the axle, through one side of the caster and a link in the chain, and secure it with a nut on the other side. It’ll keep your pet running free. Your hound dog won’t be cryin’ all the time.
