After you’ve checked out our site, we’d love for you to come by and see the daily goins’ ons at our quirky handmade tile studio in the sticks of southern New Hampshire. If goofy dogs, cool tile, and an eclectic group of former interior designers, high end tile sales consultants, and art school dropouts having fun making tile, and often times experimenting with all things awesome is your thing, then our blog will be right up your alley. Even if its not, it’s a fun way to look into the magical world of handmade tile.


Wet Dog Tile's Dog of the Week!

 Hi, everyone!

Every now and then we like to turn our attention to our favorite furry friends. In this week's Wet Dog Blog post we want to shout out Phelan, who has recently taken the crown as America's Fastest Dog.

Phelan, a greyhound, borzoi, and Scottish deerhound mix breed, is a 4 year old rescue dog who just recently won the American Kennel Club's inaugural Fastest Dog USA competition

Over 100 dogs competed in the event this year, and Phelan came out on top, completing a 100-yard dash in 6.346 seconds - or 32.3 miles per hour! For reference, Usain Bolt's fastest time has been clocked at 27.44 miles per hour.

We would also like to honorably mention Buster, the Pekingese. Although he was the slowest dog in the entire event, he is now the fastest Pekingese in the nation!

With that said, Buster, coming in dead last, didn't go home empty-pawed - he was awarded the "Turtle Award" for being the slowest dog with the biggest heart.

Have a great rest of your week, everyone!
