A couple of weeks ago I came across some old skeins of wool that I had forgotten about and I turned them into felted balls. I thought they would make a great dog toy for my giant dog who loves to chew on soft things, but after about 2 minutes he had chewed through the outer felted layer and spread yarn all over the room. Fun for him, not so fun for me.
Then over Thanksgiving we dog sat a little dachshund and he didn’t have any toys, poor boy. On top of that, our dog’s toys were about the size of this little guy’s head – way too big for him. Here he is, posing with my latest project – isn’t he cute?
So I gave him a little wool ball and he loved it! The good news is that he can’t tear it apart. For the most part he just runs around with it, but catching a shot of a running dog is impossible for me so here he is mouthing it. Any loose fuzzies can be trimmed off so he doesn’t ingest any.
