But what about everyday toys? If you are like me and Gracie, well, we can go through toys, like kitties go through cat litter.
You can save loads of money by making your own. We do it all the time. Remember I told you a couple of months ago, that Gracie's new favorite toy was an old cotton towel that Mum had lying around the house for years? That towel has been turned into several tugs toys for Gracie over the past year. And it's still going strong. She tugged with it just last night, after Mum put together a few quick knots, until she could get it braided. My sis is soooo impatient.
Today we found a great site with instructions for making your own dog tug toy - from an old pair of your jeans! Jeans that have been worn and wash for years can now have a new life as the best thing that ever happened to your dog's life!
Check out Instructables for all the great instructions for making your dog's new favorite toy.
Your dog doesn't like to tug? Try 'accidentally' spilling a little chicken stock on the toy, or tucking a little cheese in the crevices, and then see how they like it.
Remember, always supervise your pup when playing with toys - it's the safest way to be. And have lots and lots of fun!
