I ran with the mat, actually I ran left out the door to the garage or DH's Man Cave. He needed a mat to wipe his shoes when it gets muddy.
The mat is made with denim and old used curtains, it is 2 feet square. When it gets too dirty to wash, I will just pitch it.
I am still waiting for a picutre with my grand puppy on his mat. Daughter says he uses it a lot. I will post when she sends one.
