How Much Does it Cost?

It costs me $1 so you won’t need a lot of pirate booty! How? I picked these “toe socks” up from the Dollar Tree for $1 and recycled an old water bottle.

What a great idea! I’ll be sharing it on Rocco’s FB page A Husky Life

Awesome, thanks! We appreciate the love!

Hey! Thanks for stopping by LeftOvers4Dinner! This is such a cute idea! I tried something similar for my bigger dog, Bender, but he destroyed it in no time. Since I’ve got Pepper now (and she’s an adorably tiny Chiweenie), I’m sure she’ll love it!

Thank you! You definitely should try it out!!

Love the DIY pirate sock toy! I’ll have to run over to the dollar tree and get me some pirate socks and make the boys a few sock toys.

Thanks for sharing!
