Puppy Platter in Powder Blue
Love this puppy platter and the color.
Please note that there is a little irregularity on the edge of this platter. You can see it in the photos. This is not from improper glazing, but from a raw material that has come to the surface during firing. This will not affect the use at all, but of course it presents a small imperfection which I have allowed for in the price of the platter. If it bothers you, don't buy it. If you like a $40 savings, you might definitely what to consider this puppy platter.
Serves: 4-6 cavalier or cocker puppies
The puppy platter is made similar to the stainless steel variety that you can find online, but the size is perfect for up to 6 cavalier puppies (about 10" in diameter, 2" high), at the age of 4 wks. The beauty of a ceramic platter is that it holds the warmth of the gruel that we start puppies on. By the time the gruel cool in this platter, your puppies will have finished eating (or should have) and won't get chilled. That is one of the reasons I love these platters. Your puppy will stay cleaner (hopefully). It usually takes a day or two to get them to keep their feet out of the platter, but not much more, and sometimes less. That is another great feature. As puppies get older, I still find that the size is adequate for their needs, but with a big litter, you really need to measure. The platter holds two cups, comfortably, and you could push is just a little. I personally have never used this much, but I suppose you certainly could.
