Puppy Platter with Paw Prints and Puppy
All pretty puppies need pretty puppy platters. And, research shows that puppies will be prettier if they use one of my pretty puppy platters (wink, wink).
This one has my impression of a cavalier puppy head, as well as glaze paw prints all around the bowl between diagonal lines. Quite stunning!
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 so much. Your puppy will stay cleaner. 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.
