"This product was exactly the size I expected, and looks just like the picture. Very neat, the only complaint I had with it is that there is not a place to fill water or sand or anything heavy in the bottom to weigh it down. So it didn't stand up very well outside. There is kind of a sunken spot where the pole meets the base that you can add some water to and it held fairly well until the dog ran by and knocked it over and dumped out the little bit of water. Overall though, very nice"
