Unusual dog toys
takin' a breather
This toy was my way of recycling the store bought ones that didn't live up to their "super chewer" claims. I bought my dog, Monte, a ball with a handle on it, (the kind made of heavy duty rubber.) It took Monte less than 5 minutes to chew a hole through the handle (hard to tell in the pic). So I tied a rope to the rest of the ball's handle and covered the connection, (rope to ball handle), with another so-called 'heavy duty' toy he'd mangled.
Now, I'm the maypole and he's a happy dog - works for building upper body strength, in me. We also play tug of war with it, and it works indoors on rainy days - though no swinging round in the house!
Worth mentioning, the neighbor's children love watching this. As to the sock connection, that will be the next attachment, which is why I found myself here, reading through all these creative ideas. I was going to tie a couple socks on and shred the ends but after reading through all this - I can only imagine... more pics to come, thanks to all.
Editor's note: Robin, moved this to under Unusual Dog Toys - lovely photo - we look forward to more entries!
