    Popped in to B & M today. Big Hing bowls are usually about £15-£20 so very cheap at a fiver.

    Hing bowls last aswell - brought ours the bone shaped double bowls each when Westie’s were puppies, still going strong!)

    Also cool mats etc. for summer.

    I was very good, only came away with 4 holiday bowls (I have 3, wanted 4 that match lol)

    Cheaper than Tkmaxx those Hing bowls, occassionally our local one knocks the price really low but not always.

    Thanks for sharing..

    Side note never forget TKmaxx, they don't have anything for ages but then you can find some really good bargains!

    The coolmats have been that price for 3 seasons now!
    I use one under the bottom sheet to keep cool at night and the grandchildren have one each as their rooms get the evening sun.

    I’ve not seen the stay cool drinking bowl or vest. I’ll have to check them out - thank you.

    IMG_3497.PNG Luna highly recommends the water fountain. We got one when it was really hot over Easter and if we leave the back door open she is always out playing with it! The water goes maybe about a foot and a half when she doesn't have her big head in the way.

    We got the stay cool fruit mat, just the right size, it works very well to cool pup down, will be taking for days out in car this summer, along with cool vest for walks.

    me too! and one in the pillow case. Matt took one into hospital when he was going in for chemo, said it was a godsend
    and half the price, if not more, than human ones, which are, tbh, just the same thing in different boxes

    i can really recommend them for dogs too :D

    They had cooling harnesses the other week but as far as I could see they were just overpriced mesh harnesses. I really do not seem to ever find anything in there that I like.

    Wish I'd had one when I had my chemo, anything to make it more bearable! What a good idea, they work so well I've had a sneaky go on this one when it was hot last week, like really cool :cool:

    Loving the fruity cool mats! I have a (boring) cool mat in a pillowcase on the carpet in the front room most of the time as the collie gets warm after a good run and he uses it for chilling on (pun intended)

    Ooh Gelly would go crazy for that water fountain.
    I got a cooling towel for him last time I was in there as he feels the heat more now he's older, yet to use it though.

    My OH would have loved one went he went through his as well. Brilliant things and as Mrs Phas says, the same and much cheaper than the ones sold for people.
    My 84yr old Mum was hot when she visited last year. She sat on one and couldn't prise her off it.

    we brought our cooling mats off amazon i think, as our B & M didnt stock them at the time but then the dogs didnt like lying on them so had some cotton covers made for them and now cant prise them off them in the hot weather!

    Oh it is, but occassionally they have good stuff for next to nothing!

    Obviously if you want something in particular...they are guaranteed not to have it!

    I love TK Maxx but your right it can sometimes be like a jumble sale,I often buy from them online so much easier than searching through rail after rail looking for something:)

    I was so excited when I found B and M in inverness. I have been in there 3 times thinking it could not be as bad as I remember each time. But it just seems worse. I might go in and see the water bowls but I bet I dont buy one. My husband agrees with me, it just is not a shop that suits us at all. Then again we have always loved Lidl and a lot of people seem to think it is a chav shop and will not set foot in it.
