I purchased this as a gift for my wife to display at her place of work. All of her work family knows about our "four legged furry children" and hear about their escapades when they they are not "model citizens" What a fabulous peice to keep my wife and her coworkers on task, on time, and on the things that are most important at home... the four legged children we adore. Extremely classy and a true conversation starter. Well built and functional. One of those "I didn't know I needed one until I had one" kind of items. Put it on your bucket list for those that have a deep bucket and you don't know how you should fill their bucket with cool things. Highly recommend! Just sayin!
