Now that we have had our puppy Paige for about a year now I have to laugh at all the silly doggie toys we have bought for her over the year. We bought stuffed monkeys, rope chew toys, balls, bones and various other cute pet playthings.
The other day she found a rolled up fabric flower that I had made but had cleaned out some craft supplies and tossed it into the trash because it wasn't quite what I had in mind when I made it.
She thought she had found the treasure of the century. She spent days chewing on it until it unraveled. I tied a knot in the center so she could grab onto it better and it has become the event of the day if you throw it for her to fetch.
Just think of all the money I could have saved if I had let her explore more in my craft room.
