Henry woke up wheezing and coughing (barking, really,) early Sunday morning. He went into respiratory distress -- twice -- while in the ER.
Thankfully, he's slowly on the mend.
Other barking. . . .
Our goofy rescue dog, Maybe, needed some new chew toys, but I'm too cheap to spend $10+ on something she's just going to destroy. (Especially when pet toys are generally pretty simple to make.) So I turned to trusty ol' Pinterest, and found this cool step-by-step photo tutorial on how to make a 4-strand rope toy. It's really easy (and fun!) once you get the hang of it! I used two old t-shirts to make mine. They whip up in no time at all!
even easier and faster to make when you don't
have an adorable helper like mine.
And since you're only cutting a few inches off the bottom of your t-shirt, why not make it into an eco-friendly shopping tote while you're at it? I mean, this took me all of 4 fat minutes to make. Cut the sleeves. Cut the neckline. Sew the bottom. BOOM. DONE.
But I digress.
No worries. . . . I don't think Maybe noticed.
I have a whole Pinterest board full of pet-friendly crafts and treats, if you're interested!
Have you ever made pet toys or treats? What tutorials did you use? Leave a link in the comments below. . . I'm always looking for new tutes to try!
Talk to you soon!
P.S. If you don't mind, please say a little prayer for Henry. I'd be so grateful.
