Funny dog coasters

Dog coaster prints

Dog is Good drinks coasters are printed with motivational sayings mixed with humourous dog art. These dog art coasters are made from absorbent, pliable and unbreakable neoprene and measure 4 x 4in. We say that means they are built to last. Made in the USA.

Alternatively, pick your own. You will find something to suit every taste, from breed-specific coasters to funky shapes, available in wood, ceramic and a variety of other hard-wearing materials.

Dog-patterned cushions

Dog prints on cushions

We love this stylised dog print on Decorbox’s cotton linen cushion cover. Made from durable cotton linen, it measures 18 x 18in and costs $12.50 plus shipping. Note you are only paying for the cover. So, while you’re at it, be sure to add an 18 x 18in cushion filling to your basket.

Of course, this design may not be to everyone’s taste and maybe it doesn’t sit well with your mom’s home decor. In which case, we suggest you take a look at the wide selection of other dog cushion designs available on Amazon.
