We recently adopted a much larger dog after losing our beloved 17-year old, 25 pound Blue Heeler mix, and while people scoff when I say that a 50 pound dog is big, it really is to us!  And a big dog needs bigger, tougher toys, because she loves to TUG.  I knew what I wanted to get, but couldn't find a decent-sized one anywhere.  DIY to the rescue!

I followed this tutorial that I found, and they really are very simple!  Fiddly, and time consuming, but simple enough once you get the pattern down.

I made them with three different size strips, 2" on the one with the loop, 3" and the recommended 4".  Unfortunately, she tends to grab the loop end of the loop, so I'm working on a design that has loops on both ends because my hands are sore from trying to grip the knots.  I think I have an idea that will work, I just need some longer pieces of fleece (these were scraps that were given to me, so it was a free project, even!).

Great job! I have two 100 pound plus dogs and they DESTROY everything so I may need to try them.

Brilliant idea.  Sorry for the loss of your beloved Blue Heeler.  Congrats on the new family member.

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
