She Wants: Mink Faux Fur Blanket Throw

Since I purchased something similar for my brother-in-law a few years ago for Christmas, I have wanted a faux fur mink blanket for our own living room.  I know my sister and brother-in-law love theirs and these throws just look so cuddly.  I had been fighting the urge to buy one because we have young children and we have pets, which means that it would run the risk of getting ruined fairly quickly.  Within the past week and a half, our nearly 4 year old daughter has drawn on our sofa twice with pen, so you can see why I am so hesitant.

If you were to choose, would you opt for the beautiful white mink or the less-likely-to-get-stained brown?  I found this throw on Amazon.com and, although it is available in these two colors, only the white is available in the larger 60" x 86" size.  The brown only comes in 58" x 60".  I love the white and I know my husband, who is 6 feet tall, would prefer the longer throw.  Maybe when the children head off to college we'll be able to have one?
