I did luck out on the larger-dog front. I'm not sure how effective a smaller version would be at combatting mice. I had a few other designs, including a pad on the floor connected to an arduino that would sense my dog walking up to the dish and would open a lid when he stood on it and shut it a few seconds after he got off of it. In the end, this solution worked well enough not to have to go program a bunch of code. Good luck!

Very good thing to mention! The inside of the copper that houses the actual plant was coated with some clear coat. I am not sure if it will cause any issues down the line for the plant but I will keep an eye on them over the coming months. So far, I have not had any issues with plants dying.
Thank you! The combination of concrete and copper always reminded me of the combination of chocolate and peanut butter - it works perfectly together.

First off, sounds like a lovely mix. I think you could go two ways with adjusting these plans. Firstly, you could shorten the legs to bring the top of the food tray to just under shoulder level of your puppy. Secondly, you could likely build a little ramp up to a platform, giving her the ability to reach the top of the food tray. My build was created to be high enough to keep mice from jumping up into the food bowls. If you don't have a mouse problem, I think something like this would be purely for aesthetics and the overall height really wouldn't matter then.
