Pictured to the left is a toy that sells for $6.99. It's braided fleece. Well we have some fleece blanket that Brodie chewed holes all in as a puppy. Instead of throwing them out, I decided to repurpose them. So I just cut our fleece blankie into 3 strips. Tied one end, braided and tied the other end. Voila! New tug toy. Next time I may try to tie it so that it will have a loop to hold onto or even try to go through one of our chew toys similar to the Kong Tails. Here are pictures of our toy with the boys checking it out for the first time.
