Traveling with your canine companion may be a treat, but muddy paws and sopping fur are not part of the attraction. A regular towel may clean the dog, but you’re likely to get your hands and clothes mucky by the time you’re done. Soggy Dog Towels are my paws-down favorite solution. The big 27-inch by 39-inch pet towels have deep hand pockets jutting out of all four corners, so you can keep your hands clean no matter how yuck the muck as you wipe down Fido. The terrycloth cotton material is soft, quite absorbent and has a loop for hanging. The appliqué wagging dog in the center of the towel is cute, and a good reminder that this towel is strictly for the dogs. Keep a couple in the car and pet bag. Available in several bright colors.
Soggy Dog Towel is $26.22 at www.amazon.com; 866-216-1072.
