Best Mat for Dog Dishes and Feet!

We recently found a great waterproof mat to put under the dog bowls- and wanted to share it with you!

It's called the "Everyspace Waterhog Mat, 23" x 35"" and we ordered it through the L.L. Bean catalog. In fact, we ordered TWO of them. One went under the dog bowls, and the other inside the door on the sun porch so when the kids come inside with muddy paws, it absorbs the mud.

You can actually wash the mat off, if it gets muddy, food drops on it, etc. and just put it back down. No worries!  After years of different mats - that wouldn't come clean, wouldn't wash out, or took a long time to dry after washing. - this mat had none of those problems!
 
We highly recommend it, whether you need a mat for dog bowls, or one to wipe your feet coming inside. It comes in a variety of colors, too.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
