Dog bowl upgrade for the big guy

Our golden retriever Rusty has been getting on in age, and my wife suggested we elevate his dog bowls, both the food bowl, and water bowl. So seeing a “dog-bone” shaped rug, I thought I would mimic that shape, and put them both together, for simplicity.
We had the two stainless steel bowls, so I traced the bowls on the pine dog bone shape, and then cut the holes slightly smaller, so that the bowls would hang in the top.
A simple stringer to hold it together, and now he’s a happy camper without neck strain.
