Dog Bowls on Thursday

For this week's Dogs on Thursday, we have a very special guest. This is Terry, and he is the resident potter extraordinaire here at work, in addition to being an all-around good guy.


What is he holding? Three handmade, personalized dog bowls for Emma, Tara and Cooper. How great is that? I maintain Terry's mailing list, and in return I get his wonderful pottery - what a great deal! The babes were so happy with their new bowls that they each posed with their new treasures. There may have been some bribery involved, too, in the form of copious amounts of treats.

Emma says "Thanks for my new bowl, Uncle Terry! Now I have to figure out how to steal Tara's and Cooper's bowls so they are all mine."


Tara says "You're the best, Uncle Terry! Now I just have to find a good hiding place for my bowl so Emma doesn't steal it."


Cooper says "This is the best bowl ever, Uncle Terry! Now if mommy would just put some food in it..."

Thanks for the interest in Terry's pottery. He is working on a website and expects it to be up and running in a month or so. I'll keep everyone updated. In the meantime, if anyone wants to contact him leave me a message on this post with your email address and I'll give you Terry's email.

I freaked out a little bit; Terry looks *SO* much like a friend's father that it really startled me.

Lovely bowls though. Lucky dogs, for yet another reason!

What great new bowls. My dogs are jealous. Heck, I'm jealous, pottery is one of my passions. I'd love to have my own potter.

They are *very* kewl bowls, but...um...Cooper's right; they aren't very useful without the food part...

Happy DoT (your dogs are gorgeous!)

What a good trade off! I think you are getting the better end of the deal (or at least the dogs are!).

If I had disposable income, I would dispose it in Terry's direction. Those bowls kick butt.
