Darcy, pictured here at 10 months, now 17 years!

The photo above is Darcy at 10 months old.  She turned 17 years on Nov 21.
She no longer has her beautiful ears as she has just two teeth left in her mouth, but she can see well, hear. if you yell really loud :-).  She still eats with the best of them, and she still lives the good life.    She won't live forever, I know that, but I will love her each and every day as long as I have her with me.  Celebrate with me by hugging your dogs a few extra times today!

I'd like to thank everyone for your your tremendous support this past year.  I will be back at work mid January.  I am currently working on the gobbler bowls, that I took orders for in November, so I will be off line until I get them finished and shipped.  

I've already made my New Year's resolution, which is to work more, and diet of course!

The lovely ears of our spaniels need to be kept dry for a number of reasons.

First and foremost, for the health of our dogs.  Ear infections often top the list of reasons for vet visits. 

Save your dog pain, and yourself money by doing all you can to prevent moisture born ear infections.

​Secondly, it's just a good grooming habit to keep your dogs ears clean and dry. Who wants their dog to have ears filled with yuck... Not me!  In the last 18 years since starting spanielbowls.com, I've been thanked many a time for dogs not moping the floors with their wet ears.

 

Finally, there is beauty.  I see no reason for us not to have well made, appropriate sized, and good looking dog bowls in our homes.  Our dog's bowls are front and center at all times. Why not make them as nice as our own dinnerware?
