We got our first dog, Marv, from the vet school in town. He was a lab mix and lived in our backyard. We got him a food bowl but the first thing he did when we put food in it was to sling it all over the ground.

We decided to save him from that step and just dumped his food on the ground instead of using the bowl. He was happy.

Now we have smaller dogs that live inside. They each have their own bowl and their own spot in the kitchen.

None of them can pick up their bowls and dump them out but Max has learned a new trick. He flicks the pieces of food out of the bowl with his tongue.

They end up all over the floor. It is impressive. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks!
