A Cozy Crate

The first week we got Duffy, we wanted to spend economically on dog accessories that we'd need. But soon, we found out that cheaper goods may be better pricewise, but some are definitely not as high in quality. Within weeks, Duffy had already destroyed his $16 Wal-mart pet bed by yanking off the zipper. I woke up one morning to find green "snow" all over the space surrounding his crate.

Our new crate pad or pillow alternative is this eco-friendly dog mat made by West Paw Design. The mat is filled with 85% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, made into fiberfill. A large mat will have diverted 40 bottles of plastic from going into the dumps and given them a second life!

It comes in 4 great colors: Poppy, Green Tea, Oatmeal and Willow. All of the mats are backed in a chocolate brown called Bear. Our favorite is the Poppy, but we own the Willow.

, starts at $27.90 for an XS mat

Now let's hope I don't awake to another snowy morning ... :)
