What's $1000 For YOUR Dog's Food Bowl?
Okay, you don't have to spend $1000 for the Hugx Diamond Kiss Ergonomic Dog Bowl, you can still buy the non-diamond award winning Hugx Ergonomic Dog Bowl for your dog for $100 or, if she's small, even a little less. The price? Well $100 is high and $1000 is even higher, but the Hugx (pronounced "hug kiss") just won the 2008 Pet Fashion Week Lifestyle Innovation Award for a reason!
The reason is the Hugx dog bowl's ergonomic frame, the idea of dog-owner Jane Grant. She enlisted two design engineerers, formerly Audi and Mercedes design consultants, to help her create the perfect frams. After studying the way dogs eat from a flat-lying bowl and what angle of the bowl (32.5 degrees) would assist dogs ergonomically, the Hugx was developed. So what you get is a really cool-looking ergonomic dog bowl that can easily go 200 mph loaded with just 1.5 cups of kibble!
The dog bowl itself, dishwasher-safe plastic, fits snugly into the Hugx sleek stand, and accommodates puppy and grown dog, the dog on a diet, and the dog wearing an Elizabethan collar. (If you've allowed your dog to eat with his Elizabethan collar on, you know the mess it creates!)
A Mini Hugx accommodates small dogs, teacup dogs, and cats and lets you get away with only spending about $80. Both Max and Mini versions of the Hugx Ergonomic Dog Bowl come in brightly colored assortments: LA Blue, Snow White, Donegal Pink, and Piccadilly Red.
Now, back to the $1000 diamond-encrusted Hugx dog bowl. If you purchase one, you are lucky to get it at such a reasonable price. The first one was auctioned on EBay Great Britain and collected quite a bit more -- $5000! All of that money and half of future sales of the Hugx Diamond Kiss Ergonomic Dog Bowl will be donated to the British society Dogs Trust, a national charity for dog rescues. Go for it! Hugx will even personalize the diamond edition with your dog's name!
