I made a makeshift elevated dog feeder.  Big 'deep chested' dogs like Denny are pretty suseptable to bloating if they have to gulp their food or water which can kill them but at the very least cause major damage, the best way to avoid this is to not have heavy activity soon after eating and to elevate their food so less air goes down with it.  I am building a real elevated dog dish but things have been slow.  It is pretty important since he's getting bigger to do something though, so I had a big box which i converted to a dog dish holder by cutting holes in it for his dishes, he digs it :) it's pretty ghetto though!
