Several months ago I was introduced to a really cool Kickstarter for pet bowls made from recycled glass. They’re gorgeous. I donated $1, shared it on my Facebook page, and then moved on. Why? Because the price of these pet bowls was hard to get past. And then I received a PawNosh Pet Bowl in exchange for sharing my thoughts and the price tag makes perfect sense. OMG, these bowls are gorgeous. So gorgeous, in fact, that the dogs haven’t had an opportunity to try it out yet. I’m telling myself that it’s because we have two dogs and one bowl. I’ve also tried, we have two big dogs and this is one small bowl. The truth is that I want it. It’s mine. Before you call me a greedy brat, I did offer to give the pet bowl to my friend and fellow blogger Jessica who writes You Did What with Your Weiner. She has one of these bowls and two small dogs, so I’d help her complete her set (she already completed it, because she’s AWESOME!). Damn. I guess I’ll just have to keep it for myself. Mine mine mine!!! Then I consoled myself with the reminder that one day we’ll be a three dog family again and this will be a great bowl for our new dog. Of course, that dog will most likely be a large dog too, but that’s just too much thinking for now. Enough about me and my selfish streak… PawNosh Glass Pet Bowls are a better option than our traditional doggy dishes, because the material is safe for food and water, the glass 100% recycled and sourced in California, which makes this a USA Made product. The bowls were created in glass, because it’s a safe product – easy to clean, easy to keep clean. When I think of plastic bowls and raw food, I just cringe. Even the stainless steel bowls we use won’t last forever. Glass Pet Bowls… The PawNosh Glass Pet Bowls are such a better option for all of us, because they stay cleaner than the average pet dish that we buy in the store. Yes, they’re more expensive, but they’ll last forever. But wait – it’s glass – it’ll break. Yeah, I don’t think so! These dishes are not only gorgeous, but they’re crazy heavy too. So I don’t have to worry about it being scotched around the hardwoods by our dogs when they greedily eat their raw or lap up water, but it’ll do more damage to our floors if I drop it (which will happen). Recycled Glass… I love that the glass is recycled. I cringe whenever I go to empty the trash and see what we’ve thrown away that we could have recycled. I truly believe that we’re on our way to making the movie Wally a reality in this country. So whenever I see a product that uses recycled materials, I want to support that brand. The quality isn’t lessened by using recycled glass and we’re keeping glass out of our landfills – it’s a win win. It Can’t All be Good… You’re right! The only downside is the size. Bigger sizes are coming, but they’re not available yet, and being the greedy blogger that I am, I immediately think I need one for Rodrigo, one for Sydney, one for our newest family member, and one for water (maybe two for water). When you see these in person (I wish they were on store shelves so you could), you’ll understand why I love them so much. They’re gorgeous and with the loss of our sweet Blue, I want to pamper our dogs as much as possible. So maybe one or two PawNosh Glass Pet Bowls will work for us. Or three. Or maybe (and I like this idea the best) I’ll give it to a local friend who has a small dog and would love a dish like this. Have you come across something that made you think “screw the price, this is AWESOME!”?
