Here's an order of nine personalized pet bowls that I recently finished. The turn-around from order placement to completion of order was only two weeks. That's actually a week faster than what I quote customers. This order was for 6 dogs ( 5 Pugs, 1 French Bulldog ) & 3 cats ( 1 Main Coon, 1 Ragdoll and 1 Domestic Short Hair ). They should be arriving in their new home Feb 7, traveling from St. Louis to North Carolina. Crossing my fingers that they all make it intact. I'd had enough breakage with the USPS, so I switched to FedEx and haven't had an issue yet. These are my clay babies after all, so I tend to worry a little still. Pictured are small and mediums of the Model L and Model LG. The ones with the hump in the middle are for chow hounds ( Model LG ). All of the color choices I offer were ordered too. Would be nice to get images of these with their new owners to share with people. Stay tuned. http://www.lgpotter.com/personalized-pet-bowls.html
This is Shadow trying out the new bowl for fast eaters. Shadow belongs to Lori Lyman's daughter. Lori did a product review of the bowl I made for her. Here's the link to that.

I took the plunge into the video media world. It was fun to experiment with some of the options in editing. I know there's much more that I'm missing but you got to start somewhere. AVS Video Editor was the program of choice. Just did a little compare and contrasting with other software and read reviews. Free isn't too bad but to produce your file without the AVS watermark, you will have to pay for that. I'm overall pleased with the result. Take a look see and leave a comment. Thanks. http://youtu.be/elmeiTTe8E4
Pet Bowls for Fast Eaters
The Model LG is for the dog that likes to inhale their food. The dog pictured is one of those kind of dogs. His name is Emmit. If he has taste buds, I don't think he has too much use for them. The obstacle in the middle of the bowl doesn't allow for a direct route to the food. They must work around the hollow addition and this slows them down. I included a photo in the slideshow above to show you that even with a flat face like Emmits, he is still able to get his mug into the bowl. This bowl is basically the Model L with a hump in the middle. Fast eating patterns can lead to megaesophagus from trying to eat large amounts of food quickly. This stretches the esophagus and is why dogs choke and gag on food when their intake isn't controlled. Smaller bites reduces stretching and insures better digestion with less stress on the gastrointestinal tract.
