Every year, we try to include our dog, Koko, in our holiday celebration. We are thankful to have her in our life. She was my mother’s dog and we took her in when my mom moved so she would stay in the family. She loves our kids and even puts up with Olivia… which I wasn’t sure she could handle. I’ve even seen her give Olivia a kiss on the cheek so I know there is love.
We are also thankful that we can find all of the food we need for our family at Kroger but can also get what we need for Koko! She is a part of our family so I always try to bring her home something special, just like I do for the children.
I picked up a couple cans of Purina Beneful chopped blends because she only likes the wet food. Yes, she’s a baby. She also enjoys Beggin’ Strips. I mean we love bacon and Beggin’ Strips are made with bacon… so of course, she loves bacon too!
Since these are things I would normally get for Koko (food and a treat here or there), I wanted to add something special when it comes to a Christmas gift. Why not make her a homemade gift: a tug-of-war rope.
Check out the tutorial below and make sure to Spread holiday love to your furry friends with the help of Purina! Now through the end of November, take advantage of great savings on your favorite Purina pet products available at Kroger with this Coupons.com link, while supplies last.
Homemade Tug-Of-War Rope
- 2 old t-shirts, different colors
- pins/ safety pins
- Cut the t-shirts into even strips. You’ll need 6 strips from one color and 3 strips from the other.
- Knot the top of 3 strips and braid. Untie the top and braid the strips up (everything that was knotted) and use a pin (or safety pin) to hold each end. Repeat on other strips. You can also leave in knots until all 3 are finished if you don’t have pins.
- Tie all 3 braids into a huge knot. Pull tight. This is necessary to guarantee the toy doesn’t come apart when playing.
- Braid 3 smaller braids together.
- Repeat tight knot on the other end.
