These colorful bird feeders are made from AZAK the same material that new decks are constructed of. So, whenever you decide to repaint, just change to a color you like. The AZAK should last forever so should the cup and saucer.

AZAK Patio And Porch Benches

Hello,

Just want to bring to everyone’s attention our popular patio and porch benches.

First of all why call them a patio bench in the first place?  Great question!

I make the base of these patio benches from a product called “AZAK”. You have probably heard of it under different names, but it is a synthetic product that looks like wood.  It is used in outdoor and deck construction.

AZAK, has many outdoor benefits, like water,insect and mold resistance. And, down the road a bit you can easily remove the top and spray paint the base in a color of your choice.

After the base is constructed I top it off with recycled pallet boards.  Which are sanded, stained and poly coated to resist the weather. The pallet wood varies with each bench made. No two have the same nail holes, knots, or grain.

As you can see from the pictures, these patio benches can be made in an infinite color and sizes.

So, if you are interested just step over to the store for a few more important details.

Elevated Big Dog Feeder

If you are a loving big dog owner, then you have probably become aware of the health benefits of a raised big dog feeder.

The following was copied from peteducation.com

.

What are the benefits of an elevated feeder?

A. Veterinarians recommend elevated feeders for some dogs and cats because they offer a number of advantages: hygiene and cleanliness, comfort for dogs and cats with arthritis or neck or back problems, and benefits for cats and dogs with megaesophagus or other conditions that make swallowing difficult.Dog eating from an elevated feederElevated feeders and dishes keep feeding areas cleaner. Elevated dishes help keep the food and water in the bowls and not on the floor. They prevent cats from playing in their water, which some are prone to do. Dogs tend to lift their heads after taking a drink to facilitate swallowing. As the dogs raise their heads, water that does not make it down their throat often ends up on the floor. Over time, this can ruin your floor. With an elevated feeder, they do not have to raise their heads as far and the water usually drips right back into their water dish. Moisture that may get under the dish creates a great place for molds and bacteria to grow.

Elevated feeders can help in caring for dogs and cats with a condition called megaesophagus. In this condition, the esophagus (the tube that leads from the mouth to the stomach) becomes large and flaccid. Instead of moving the food down to the stomach through muscular contractions, the enlarged and weak esophagus dilates and allows the food to accumulate there instead of the stomach. This can lead to regurgitation and vomiting. An elevated feeder will allow gravity to help get the food down to the stomach.

Elevated feeders may be more comfortable for some older pets. Dogs with arthritis and cats with arthritis may benefit from elevated feeders. Bending over to eat is not comfortable for pets with stiff muscles or sore joints, particularly for pets with neck or back problems, such as intervertebral (IV) disc disease. Older pets often eat less, which means they may not get the nutrition they need. If eating or drinking is painful or uncomfortable, they are likely to eat or drink even less. Raising food and water to their level encourages eating and drinking.

Finally, elevated feeders have an extra bonus. We have had pet owners tell us that they appreciate not having to bend over as far to pick up or fill up water and food dishes. For the frail, physically handicapped, or persons with arthritis or back problems, elevated feeders can make a big difference.

In the past, elevated feeders had been recommended by some veterinarians for dogs who may be susceptible to bloat (gastric dilatation and volvulus – GDV). Other veterinarians recommend against their use. If your dog is at risk of developing bloat, contact your veterinarian regarding the use of an elevated feeder.
