Let me preface this by saying I'm waiting until the weather dips down into the 80s to paint. With that being said:
In a small alcove off the kitchen that leads into the laundry room, I decided to corral all things related to our horde of creatures. A simple $40 steel shelving system from Target fit the space perfectly, and gave us room for treats and canned food on the top level. I then popped in two drawer units to hold grooming supplies on the left and clean bowls on the right. A couple of tiles left over from the flooring project provide a perfect perch for the Feline Overlords'
troughs dishes, well out of canine reach. Underneath are snap lock bins for dry food and a watering dish with a reservoir resting on a slap of marble (I'm totally weird about the new floors, really). Lastly, a raised feeding dish for the pups, who are both 8 and don't need the strain of getting to the floor for a bite. S hooks to the left of the unit keep leashes and show bags in order.
Because Mom's dog is an AKC registered agility champion.
Mine is a big semi-hairless spoiled mutt.
For some other ideas, go check out what Jane at The Borrowed Abode did with hers. We were evidently on a wavelength last week!
