I didn't get this for my dog. I got it as a back country wash basin... And for that, I love it.long story: I used to have a GSI cookset, they have a storage sack that is basically a small collapsable bucket. I loved that feature, but the spoon broke stirring my potatoes. So, I decided to try an MSR set... This perfectly fits my MSR 2.5 L pot, and can hold some soapy water for scrubbing up.VICTORY IS MINE!!!
