A good question from Jason: My wife and I had a nice rug in our living room, but over the course of the last year and a half it's been destroyed by our two Corgis. The rawhide chewing has left gooey marks all over it, and their ridiculous shedding has embedded hair into the rug leaving it looking dingy no matter how much we vacuum it...

We are both design nuts but are dog people first, so changing what the dogs do isn't an option, and we'll have to make our next rug purchase around them. So do you guys have any suggestion for a kind of rug that is attractive and modern, but would hold up to our two hairy beasts?

Please share your suggestions for a new rug that will stand up to the Corgis....
