My dogs favourite toy was the cat!

Omg I love these toys my bff would love this!!!!!!😃😃😃😃😃😃😃

Very cute ideas, just be careful of diy toys and make sure to keep an eye out. Also wash the fabric in hot water before giving it to your furry friend, especially old t-shirts and things that may have come in contact with harsh chemicals like perfume, bleaching agents or detergents. Just be mindful that they'll chew on it and may swallow bits, so keep an eye out :)

My bff use to take the broken end of a hair brush, the handle was hard yet chewy.

Oh I wish! I can't even buy a toy or ball my pit bull won't demolish ! I envy these things lol.
