    I'm glad you were able to connect with Julie. Her bowls have certainly helped with those yucky ears we all have to brush. I guess we have similar taste as I have the exact same colors you ordered!

    Please don't think I am criticising anyone else';s choice of bowls for their Cavaliers, but I am just wondering why some of you prefer ceramic to metal bowls. I use metal for all my dogs, water and food. I have the Royal Canin raised bowls set because Rebel likes to drink so much water, which means he has to keep his head down to drink for longer than the other dogs would.

    The dogs are happy with metal and I have peace of mind because they get a good scalding out in the dishwasher after use,thus hopefully keeping them free of any bacteria. Being a bit on the clumbsey side when I am in a rush to get things done, I know I am not going to break anything if I drop one of the metal bowls is another point in their favour too. The dogs haven't complained either

    Like I said, not criticising anyone, but I would like to know why others do not like them?

    I love ceramic bowls - for how they look, but we have hard granite worktops and terracotta tiles on the floor and a very clumsy person in charge (me) so they would end up in bits very quickly

    Some of these bowls are delicious! Really love the colours,

    I have found some great products which are cheap and colourful from http://www.pet-super-store.com/pet-s...d-dog-feeders/ its good as it delivers to Ireland as well. I also have been on the look out for other pet care products, and htese sites have good discount on them. I öalso got a bean bag for my daughter for her and the kids!

    In our case Skippy is the one who doesn't like the metal bowls. I think he's afraid of the multiple moving reflections, especially when the bowl is filled with water.

    I like the ceramic ones because they look nicer, the metal ones look sterile to me. I don't have a dishwasher, so I hand wash all my bowls in nice hot water anyway, so I've no fear of bacteria
