Dinner For Two: You And Spot

The Pet High Chair, available at Hammacher Schlemmer

Since the dawn of petkind, mankind has been looking for a way to keep our furry friends from begging for scraps at the dinner table. It’s about time the human race has figured out that it’s an unwinnable battle. However, there is a solution that both saves face, and gives our adorable little critter friends that which they most desire: a seat at the dinner table.

The Pet High Chair, available at Hammacher Schlemmer, lets you and your pet share a meal while seeing eye to eye. The adjustable chair clips on to tables that are up to 2-inches thick, while the 600-denier tan and brown nylon fabric comfortably holds your dinner companion in place. As for the unexpected eventual attempt to dash across the dinner table to help you lick your plate clean, the chair comes equipped with two tethers to help keep dinner as refined as possible.

I have about as much patience for place settings as I do for utensil drawer dividers. Granted, it’s a lot easier to just reach for a fork or a butter knife when you know where it is, but I’m still going to just toss freshly-cleaned utensils into the drawer and let them fall where they may. Same goes for place settings: instead of following a prescribed pattern, utensils on my table fall naturally to where they are most beneficial.
