Go on bowl me over....
But that got me wondering, what sort of bowls should I get the dogs next?
We're often doing feeding trials here so they tend to get snapped for the magazine (and snapped in real life when I trip over a discarded school shoe!)
With sadly no New York shopping sprees on the horizon, I'm asking you to be my eyes and ears in the world of doggie fashion.
What do you think is the most desirable super bowl of the moment?
Practicality must score high (dishwasher friendly please!) and ideally I need two bowls sufficiently different so I can work out which one belongs to each dog. Current bowls were particularly annoying in the dishwasher as no matter which way up you put them they always attracted a reservoir of yukky dishwasher water when you opened the door!
Send me your best spots and why you like them and we'll put a page in the mag! Maybe you can send me a pic of your bowl, in your kitchen with your dog and also tell me what you feed!
Any dreamy manufacturers - why not send me your most gorgeous bowls so I can test them out and photograph them! (Why not - there has to be some perks to being a dog mag editor - imagine if I was editing Grazia, I'd have a dozen handbags and a closet full of designer labels!)
If you've got pix mail me your bowl reports to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can post them on the blog for others to see. Or just comments with links and pass on this request to anyone in the world who might have seen a gorgeous bowl!
We use stainless steel bowls but do end up collecting unusual ones from car boot sales, charity shops etc. This lovely bowl was bought at a charity stall at a dog show. It is heavy and 'classy'. We also have a few others including a nice deep blue one with the word WATER impressed into its side. Some of them have interesting makers marks too. We just loved the words 'all gone' in the centre of this one though.
