Wow. I have got to find a shaggy rug at a yard sale or thrift store or maybe a clearance somewhere because what dog would not want one of these. Mine will and he is always jumping on the sofa when we leave and he is not suppose to be on there and he has a memory foam dog bed. I love how simple and easy this is to make. I am going to leave on end open to stuff mine so I do not have to slit the channels and then close the end. So if you have a picky dog like me then this will be the tutorial to see.

MixtyMaxty has a wonderful idea to make these practical little rugs and donate them to the Animal shelters. Hoorah for MM for your kind heart.

I like this idea and hope to try it soon. Look for rugs at yard sales, sew them up and donate to an animal shelter - I'm sure they would be welcome.
