I love the custom personalized dog water/feeding bowls I bought for Molly and Izzy from Kim Berger, an artist on Etsy from East Troy, Wisconsin, at her shop: KBOriginalsetc. I have had them for a few months now and can attest to their durability and general strength. I also love her designs and color schemes. Moreover, the delivery time was very reasonable for personalized pottery. Check out her shop here, which carries all types of personalized pottery pieces: http://www.etsy.com/shop/KbOriginalsetc
