My Schnoodle Sammy has a charming habit of letting me know he is hungry by knocking over his (not very sturdy) water bowl with his little paw. The other pooch, the new guy, has been, since his arrival in the household, eating out of a Heath Ceramics bowl that I am quite fond of, and would like to put back into human rotation. All around, the imperative for new canine servingware has felt pressing. And so the other day, when I found myself (rather randomly) scrolling through the Orvis site and saw this stoneware dog bowl, I decided I had to spring for a few—one for each dog and one for water. Sammy will have a hard time capsizing one of these. And I am not lying when I say that they are better-looking than most of my dishes.
