My friend gave me the great idea of storing my dog food in the garbage can shown above. (Don't worry, I wiped it down with a dry paper towel first.) And the dogs only knocked it down once in psychotic excitement, so I say that's pretty much a win. The only problem with the can being kept near the front door is that I never know if they are begging to be taken outside, or if they are begging for more food. I've pretty much got it figured out though: Mojo is always begging to be taken outside, and Marley can only concentrate on one thing. Dinner. Again.
