Floating Disk Doggie Toy
This is my sweetheart, the thieving little stinker! You can't read it, but this toy came from pets.com. It was returned to it's rightful owner moments after this photo was taken!

I realized the importance of floating dog toys recently when I brought my beautiful Golden Retireiver, CeeCee to a local park that has a wonderful off leash area for dogs. CeeCee kept stealing other dog's toys, so I knew I needed to get her one of her own. I was surprized to see how expensive they are however, and decided I could make one myself. I already had the supplies on hand, so it was very easy, and very quick!
10" x 20" piece Ripstop nylon, color of your choice (I had rainbow colors, so I used them all!)
3 feet of 3/8" plastic tubing (available in your hardware store's plumbing dept.)
1/2" piece of 1/4" plastic tubing (available in your hardware store's plumbing dept.)
Thread to match your fabric
Long thin straight pins
To make a rainbow colored disk like mine, cut a 10" circle from paper. Divide it into six even sections. Use a section as your pattern to cut two from each color. Stitch them together to make a cricle, and then follow the steps above.
