I have a backyard about 20' X 60'. I also have two large dogs. The dogs have the run of the yard, which is great, but they have turned what was very feeble grass into mud. Is there anything I can put down or any kind of groundcover that will allow them to run around, yet withstand their pounding (and occasional digging) and still look a little bit decent? I'm not worried about anything too beautiful, but I'd prefer something as an alternative to the muddy yard I currently have.

There is not a groundcover that can withstand that kind of damage. You may want to consider some hardscaping options, such as sand or pebbles for the areas they play it.
