long enough to finish a meal. Her bowls are in an elevated
stand, and I'm not looking so much to debate the merits of
that as I am trying to get help on whether I should let her
work it out for herself or just let her lay down and eat.
So far, sometimes I take it out of the stand when she lays
down half way through, sometimes I let her wait and get
back up when she's ready. I kinda would like to let her
be in control of her life as much as possible, but I'm
obviously pretty torn right now as to how to be the best
mommy I can be.
Thanks for any help/opinions, gang!

What if you put 1/2 her meal in the standing bowl, and 1/2 her meal in a bowl on the floor? She's an old girl who probably doesn't care if she's up or down to eat, I'd think, and I know it's really easy for me to say from this distance, but it's probably way more important to you than it is to her. But believe me, Val, I completely understand your dilemma, and I'd have exactly the same concerns if I were in your shoes.
Bullet's trial was a farce. Can I get an AMEN?????

I'd feed her by hand if that made it easier, and my guess is, you would too.
It must be heartbreaking watching for you to see her like this, my heart really goes out to you Val, :yh_hugs
The best mommy in the world

When dogs get elderly and don't want to eat its heartbreaking so while she is enjoying her food any which way is okay by me .
