The Day I Put Away the Blue Puppy Bowls

The first set of puppy bowls I've ever purchased in my whole life.
I had them ready for Jon Farleigh the day he came to stay forever. 
And put one of them away for Dewi (who would be joining Jon Farleigh two months later).

With the exception of the three nights they once spent at doggie vacation camp,
they've eaten every single meal from these blue bowls.

I never intended to use them more than a few weeks.

Eventually, I had to put away their outgrown puppy collars and harnesses.
They stopped needing puppy food.
I bought bigger crates.
The last puppy toy was finally shredded beyond repair. 

Then one day they stopped chewing up the rugs and the furniture and slippers and kids' toys and toilet paper.
And they turned two years old.

But up until last night - when I replaced them with two new, not-plastic ones - they were still eating every meal from their blue puppy bowls.

So tell me, what kind of boob gets all worked up over replacing her grown dogs' food bowls?

Me, that's who.

I'm a boob. 

Who's never typed the word "boob" before.

Thanks for reading.

I think I'll be okay now. :)

P.S. I'll see you all back here on Thursday; taking a day off tomorrow!


  1. Boob. (I just had to try it!) You're cute - wouldn't it be nice if they could stay puppies forever??

  2. Ha! But you forgot to show us their cool, new, grown up big dog bowls!

  3. You are getting all sentimental like mom does
    Benny & Lily

  4. Awwww, for the puppy bowls, not the 'boob' part. I get choked up whenever I see Gimli's puppy collar. They are too darned cute and lovable!

  5. Just two more children that you get emotional over, thinking how they're growing and time's flying. Those are adorable bowls, though! And boob. Yeah, I never typed it before either. Cool.

  6. I can see the sentiment :-) I would not use anything other than stainless steel bowls for my guys, though.

  7. Right there with you, Elizabeth. I still have Beau's first collar and license, never mind all of Bella's puppy things! Puppyhood lasts so short a time, I would be surprised if an action that serves to remind you it has passed didn't make you a little sentimental. :]

  8. Sure it was not easy, right?
    Happy Wednesday!
    Kisses and hugs
