Can you believe it’s June already? Wow…surely the fastest Spring ever. With the end of May comes a close to my May Dog Pottery Giveaway. And the winner of last month’s prize is Wendy S. Congratulations to Wendy!!!! She will be receiving her dog breed sugar bowl as soon as I hear which breed she would like.
I’m working on getting June’s Giveaway put together and should be up by tomorrow.
A quick post to let you know that this month’s giveway is up and running. The prize this month is a set of dog salt and pepper shakers with your choice of dog breed. These will be great on your tabletop, or you could gift them to the dog lover in your life.
I was so happy that a customer requested that I make salt and pepper shakers because they have been very popular. I use mine all the time. And yes, that is me in my kitchen using my German Shepherd shakers 🙂

This months giveaway is for a set of dog breed salt and pepper shakers with your choice of dog breed (from my currently available designs). The drawing runs until December 31st, so there’s still plenty of time to enter. And while the winner won’t receive them for Christmas, it’ll be a nice gift to receive in the new year. Click here to enter and best of luck.
My Saint Bernard Gifts are now available! I started my Saint Bernard Design in the summer for a customer but hadn’t finished it because she got busy and didn’t provide me with a picture of the coat color of her friend’s dog. But things came together and I finished the art, and the items, and now have a finished piece with a Saint Bernard to show you, and notice that it was made with my new mug shape. Here is my new Saint Bernard mug:
The Saint Bernard mug is on my website, along with the Saint Bernard Ring Dish (dipping bowl), which is a cute little bowl for holding rings, coins, sauces, etc. I will be adding all of my other pottery shapes to the Saint Bernard gifts category very soon.
If you are beginning to think about your holiday shopping, and are looking for a unique gift for the dog lover in your life, I may have the answer for you. I have added my dog breed sugar bowls to my website, www.shepherds-grove.com, and have been busy making my blank stoneware pieces to keep up with demand. This is a really great piece to use daily. The sugar bowl will obviously hold sugar but it’s also a nice size for cotton balls, q-tips, change, hard candies, and other small items.
With the Holidays just around the bend, I have found myself busy (and thankfully so) filling orders from my website and Etsy shop. But I have also taken some time to add several new dog breed designs, and color variations of existing dogs, to my line-up. And so far, they’ve been enthusiastically received. The new dogs that I have added are:
Shih Tzu with puppy cut – white with grey
Yorkshire Terrier with puppy cut;
Pomeranian – red, black
Papillon – red and white, black and white;
Pug – black, fawn
French Bulldog – fawn with mask and solid fawn
Dachshund – red smooth
Boston Terrier – black and white
Australian Shepherd – tricolor
German Shepherd – black
Doberman Pinsher – red and rust
Greyhound – black color
Mastiff – fawn color
Great Dane – fawn, harlequin
Poodle with show cut – black, white
Shetland Sheepdog – sable
Pit Bull – brown and white
The above dog breeds are available on wine stoppers and mugs, though I have a little work to do to get all of my items listed on my website. Currently all dog wine stoppers are listed and most of the dog breed mugs. I will be making mugs with my new dog breeds and color variations in the next week and so will have all of the above listed breeds and colors photographed and listed very soon. If you are looking for one of the above listed breeds/colors but don’t see on my website, contact me and I’ll be happy to help you out.
