Having 5 dogs at home is no joke! Feeding them and taking care of them eats up most of my time. Although I share the job with my daughter, I am the one who does the job most of the time. Feeding time is always the busiest time at home as we have to prepare 5 different set of foods. We don't give the same kind of foods to everyone that's why it's a bit difficult to prepare foods for each of them. Our 2 year old shih-tzu cannot eat chicken as he got a sensitive skin, so most of the time we feed him with beef or pork liver and rice. He eats dog foods (Alpo) only for breakfast and snacks, he likes rice for lunch and dinner. Our Golden Retriever who is less than a year old but very big now only eats rice mixed with dog food. Their dish bowls, dog food supply, and other paraphernalia are placed everywhere in the house and I find it to be too messy. Because of this, I am thinking of fabricating a pet feeding station where I could put everything in one place. Less mess...less eye sore.
