As much as Dobermans chew through toys I needed to find a cheaper toy. So I made braided tug of war toys!
I purchased two kinds of fleece - a plain one and a bright colored.
Then I cut the fleece into 1.5 - 2 inch strips and tied one of each color together with a square knot (right over left, left over right; left over right, right over left) in about 1 inch off center. The knot process will leave the two sides equal.
Then take the right strand in your right hand and weave over the second, under the third, over the fourth. The second strand is now the first so take it and weave across like the last.
Continue until you are 4 - 6 inches from the bottom. Tie two more square knots to tie off the bottom. Leave the last strips loose. Tickle the dogs nose with the loose ends and let them play tug of war.
Sorry the dog pictures are blurry...but they were moving too fast for this poor phone.
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
