When we took Dex to Pugmania, we bought him this dog toy for a dollar that was nothing more than cloth braided together into a rope. He loved it, but when he had tummy troubles this past week, it had to be thrown away. I decided to try to recreate it, in the hopes of making a sick doggie happy.
I went and bought a clearance fabric remnant that was 20 inches wide, and 1 yard 22 inches long. Total price was $1.93
I secured the other end with a knot, removed all six safety pins, and it was ready to go!
Now it was time for the test. Would Dexter like it?
He promptly took the toy into his crate to play with it, a sure seal of approval.
There was enough fabric left to make 3 more toys at least, so the cost of this toy was around 50 cents. Given how quickly he chews dog toys up, I think this was a pretty good bargain!
