If the photo above looks to you like a Sunbeam mixing bowl sitting in a chafing dish stand---you are correct! If the photo above looks to you like an elevated dog food/water bowl---you are correct!
Tall breed dogs have an easier time eating when their food and water are elevated.
It's so difficult to find a reasonably priced elevated water bowl, but I ran across these components (in the top and bottom photos) at the thrift store and created the elevated water bowl---for less than $10. :o) It's easy to clean, too!
