So, I ran across the idea for this braided fleece dog tug toy on another blog the other day. I’m currently blanking on which one! It was on a list of “ideas for handmade gifts for your animals this holiday season” type of thing. Hmm…I really like to give credit. I’m sure I’ll remember eventually.
In any case, I loved the idea, and we don’t have too many toys for the new puppy, so I quickly whipped one up. It was very quick and easy. And it’s been surprisingly durable. I’m actually pretty shocked by that. They are having a great time playing together and are becoming quite the little buddies. I made it rather long, and I tied the knots really tight. I also tied extra knots in the middle (three of them) to hopefully add to its durability. I didn’t fringe the edges, once again from a durability factor. I also made a second one that had double strips of fleece (so this one is three strips braided together, but I made the second one with strips of two braided together for a total of six strips). So I will break that one out when they destroy this one.
