I might join in on this one.  My baby, Emma, loves toys.  That's her in my avatar picture.

 But as long as they dont get wet they hold up very well.

Hmm could be a problem about not getting wet

Re: knit/crochet dog toys and moisture - I've found the easiest way to avoid the knit/crochet wet toy slobber disaster is to knit or crochet a double layer and make it larger than you intend and make it entirely out of non-superwash wool or another animal fiber....felting/fulling is just applying friction to wool or natural animal fibers with heat and moisture.....a dog slobbering and chewing on a toy provides friction, heat and moisture. When the dogs are done playing with their toy, you have a perfectly felted toy they can continue to play with that is even STRONGER than the original because the fibers have all locked together! It's worked well so far, even for a dog who can rip through a black KONG toy in under two hours. Wink

Take note people, if you're my partner it would be awesome if you can do what's suggested above Cheesy

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

I'm glad it's doable lol - I'd love a toy for Buddy that he can't demolish easily
