Dog Bowls for Special Pups

Hand painted ceramic dog bowls will make your pup into “royalty” as he dines in style! Choose one that is fun to eat out of as well as letting it create an attractive conversation piece in your kitchen and go along with whatever your décor may be.

The bowls are functional and durable because they are food and water safe, use lead free glazes and lead free eco-solvent inks, can be used in the microwave, and can be placed in the dishwasher for easy and sanitary cleaning. Being stable, your dog can chow down without spilling its food and drink or nose the bowls around or tip them over.

The stoneware bowls are made of the highest quality ceramic and is oven-fired to resist chipping and fading. They are also fully compliant with FDA Regulations and Standards.

There are many bowls that are specific to the different breeds so that you can “honor” your pet by displaying his or her breed as well as possibly add the pet’s name. There are different sizes to accommodate the individual dog, and there are also ways to raise up the bowls to make them easier for larger dogs to eat and drink and to accommodate elderly dogs.

There are many ways to handsomely personalize a dog bowl. Since the featured bowls in this article are hand painted, you can order the shape, size, color, and what is painted onto the bowl including an uploaded image from your computer, custom pictures, graphics, and sayings such as “Woof” or “Gulp” or the clever “One Spoiled Dog Lives Here.”

The price of dog bowls varies from very inexpensive to quite expensive if it was hand crafted, hand painted, and signed on the bottom by a well-known artist either here in the United States or in a foreign country. Imagine dog bowls selling for over $100!

Faux Paw Productions in Laguna Beach, California, has a wide selection of unusual and durable dog bowls from which to choose. Since their hours vary, it is recommended that you contact them to make an appointment if you would like to visit in person. Otherwise you can happily browse through their inventory online.

The Chinese Wonder Book Review



Coming from a Chinese family, I am interested to share to my children some Chinese heritage and stories. I am grateful that Tuttle Publishing has published The Chinese Wonder Book by Norman Pitman. It contains 15 classic Chinese folktales which has brought joy to countless families.

The amazing stories included are:

  • The Golden Beetle or Why the Dog Hates the Cat
  • The Great Bell
  • The Strange Tale of Doctor Doo
  • The Talking Fish
  • Bamboo and the Turtle
  • The Mad Goose and the Tiger Forest
  • The Nodding Tiger
  • The Princess Guanyin
  • The Two Jugglers
  • The Phantom Vessel
  • The Wooden Tablet
  • The Golden Nugget
  • The Man Who Would Not Scold
  • Lusan, Daughter of Heaven

But my daughter’s favorite so far is “How Footbinding Started”. She found footbinding to be a strange Chinese tradition so she was truly interested to read this story.

The Chinese Wonder Book is a hardbound book with 96 pages of full-color illustrations by Li Chu Tang, This is actually originally published in 1919 and has been republished for the new generation to enjoy.

You may get this book from Tuttle Publishing.
