But no, it is a warming mat for pets, Black dog is very arthritic and the cold weather is making life a little unpleasant
Here it is with its little cover on, as you can see by the dog fur adhering to the cover it was tried out by all 5 dogs last night, some liked it more than others. It has carbon fibers embedded in the mat and so is safe against water and can be wiped down, the cover of course can be washed. Just what's needed.
And just because I managed to get a reasonable pic of the dining room, here's the table all set with dinner. Nothing quite like a dose of the lurgy to keep a body quietly at home with nothing to blog for a week.
