new tug toy

The other day Urban Hounds posted about how to make a homemade tug toy out of an old pair of jeans. As you may have gathered mummy isn’t very good at creative things, but as sheย had an old pair of jeans she can no longer fit in she thought she’d give it a go.

I won’t go too much into how to make it as the instructions in Urban Hounds‘s post are pretty straighforward – put it this way, mummy managed to make it first time without a hitch!

Thanks for the great idea UH! I LOVE my new tug toy, and I haven’t managed to kill it yet – I’m giving it a good thrashing though:-)

I think I'm winning mummy!

I think I’m winning mummy!

Have you made one too?

Ps, I have recently joined BlogPaws – I’m still trying to find my feet on there, but if you have a profile please do look me up. Hopefully this link will take you to my page:

    My….. what strong teeth you have. You and Rafi could have a good tug game, he pulls me over too easily ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. What a very clever idea. I have plenty of jeans that I no longer fit into (wish it were that they were too big for me ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  4. We saw it too and thought how cool is that? Nice one Misaki. Urban Hounds always have cool stuff to make and bake. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

    Cool idea. I am not really into tug toys but tug of war is my sister’s favorite game, she would enjoy that toy!

    That is a good tug toy…the denim should hold up well to sharp teeth…very clever of Urban Hounds and sonice of your momz to make one for you Misaki…

  10. That’s impressive and looks like fun! We just found you on Blogpaws but I don’t know anything about it either so we can find out together!

    Funnnnnnnnnnnnx grrrrrrrrrrrrrr xxxx

  12. I’m sure your Mom doesn’t mind you telling everybody that she grew out of her jeans. Yup. I’m sure she’s fine with it…. It looks like you are a good strong tugger!! I am only allowed to play tug for 2 seconds, and then Mom says, “Drop it.” and I do.

    Love and licks,

  13. What a great idea!…. Thanks for sharing, Misaki ;o) I’m off now to visit the wardrobe…..

    That looks like a great new toy. Mom took old jeans a couple weeks ago and made a purse. Sheesh, that’s no good. I am on blog paws too, just look me up.

  18. That’s a way cool toy – how clever of your Mummy to figure out how to make it AND how clever you are to try and figure out how to destroy it!! HAHAHA We are members of Blogpaws (and we got your friend notice!!) but Mom never has time to visit! Maybe I can get her PUSHED and TUGGED into going back to say hi to friends……YAY!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

    great idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Perhaps reviews of this sort should have a start date and an end date? Do tell us when you have managed to kill the tug toy!

  21. catchatcaren says:

    Those jeans are a “JEANIOUS” idea BOL!!! I may have to get Mom to try that! So happy you are part of the BlogPaws community! Welcome!

  22. That is one cool tug-toy Misaki!! You can make em’ out of lots of old stuffs. Ma made me one out of an old fleece sweatshirt! Polar fleece is the bestest, it tends not to tear as easily.

  23. Ann Paws says:

    Hey Misaki, your new toy looks really awesome! And thanks for finding me on BlogPaws!

  24. That is a super cool tug toy! Way to go Mummy!

  25. A Husky Life says:

    What a cool idea! I think I have an old pair laying around somewhere.

  26. Bassas Blog says:

    Jeans do make great tug toys Misaki. The problem is that I have never figured out the difference between old and new, which has caused a few problems ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Mommy’s gonna make me one of those today..Looks like great fun and I might not kill it in 30 seconds..BOL xx00xx
