If your dog is like mine, they go through expensive squeaky toys like CRAZY! Their favorite toys are "skineez" toys - they are squeaky toys usually in the shape of animals (rabbits, skunks, squirrels, etc) and they have no stuffing in them, which is nice because my dogs make a huge mess out of stuffing.
While I was doing my spring cleaning I came across some matchless socks and some with holes that were in a pile that I was wondering what I could do with them. Then I had an "aha!" moment.
I had previously ordered some sqeakers on ebay because I was constantly mending their squeaky toys and replacing the squeakers. But after a while, the toys just belong in the garbage. So, I grabbed my squeakers.
Then I grabbed one of the matchless socks.
I put 3 of the squeakers in the sock in 3 different locations, and then just stitched a few stitches on the sock to keep the squeakers in their own little sections of the sock, and then I sewed the end of the sock shut.
Sammy heard me squeaking away and was anxiously awaiting the finished product. It definitely got his approval.
Why pay $6 for a squeaky toy that would last just as long as an old matchless sock I had laying around? Clearly Sammy is not choosy as long as the toy squeaks. I better order more squeakers :)
