UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed.
You might have noticed our little tag line up there, “Where form and function meet Fido.” We love dog stuff, and we love great design. Every once in a while we stumble across a dog product where both form and function come together to produce something… well, pretty @#&$ing great. (Cue music crescendo…)
A while back the folks over at Bamboo Pet asked if we’d take a look at their new Silicone Travel Bowl (or Bol de voyage en silicone, if vous parlez Francais) and let y’all know what we think. Sure, I said, but we’re tough! We’re ruthless! We can make or break you! (Actually, I pretty much just gushed my thanks and waited eagerly for the package to arrive.)
Upon its arrival, we subjected the bowl to rigorous testing, which basically included determining the answer to two questions: 1) Does it look cool? and 2) Does it work?
Having analyzed our data, I can honestly say that this bowl is one of the best dog products I’ve run across in a while, and I’m not just saying that ’cause the nice Bamboo people sent it for free. (Please send more free stuff… please send more free stuff…)
Made of fun and bendy silicone, the Bamboo Travel Bowl collapses to less than a half-inch thick, making it easily transportable in a bag, pocket, on your head, wherever. It’s dishwasher safe and comes in two sizes (1 cup and 3 cup, which we tried) and three colors (blue, pink, and green).
In the interest of full disclosure, the only issue we encountered in our “testing” was Mingus’ insatiable desire to try to tip the bowl over with his paw, but that’s more a testament to the fact that my dog can be kind of a jerk than a complaint against the bowl itself.
So… how ’bout it? Would you like to have a Bamboo Silicone Travel Bowl of your very own? You can find a store near you here, or buy it online here… OR you could leave a comment below by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, July 5th to be entered to win a FREE 3-cup green travel bowl courtesy of Bamboo Pet and phetched! We’ll even throw in a handy Bamboo waste bag dispenser for your dog’s leash, ’cause we love y’all that much.
