This originally became a toy because Pilot the Rat Terrier puppy wouldn’t leave the novelty yarn in the yarn cubbies! After he slobbered all over it, it was his, so I made it into an actual toy. It turned out to be a hit. Very simple, but the texture and sling-a-bility was perfect for a little terrier that naturally shakes his toys like he was bred to shake prey. At 3 1/2 he still loves them, as do all the dogs I have ever made one for.

This is a great beginner project because there’s no ends to sew in and it’s a good use to re-purposed yarn from those early projects that didn’t go quite right!
