Hi all, hope you don't mind me doing a bit of a promotion for a really great organisation! Australian Working Dog Rescue are committed to rescuing working dog breeds (Australian Kelpies, Australian Cattle Dogs, Australian Koolies, Border Collies, and all crosses of those breeds) from pounds in Australia. Most of the dogs are on death row.
One of their volunteers makes a dog toy called Tugz, they are the Australian made version of the US's 'Jakes Tugs', this volunteer makes them herself, buys all the materials, and donates 100% of the purchases to Australian Working Dog Rescue. I bought one for my Kelpie and he really loved it, they're really good quality toys, that should last for a long time. It would also be nice to order some and donate them to your local shelter, too.
Purchase info on Tugz can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=352075784824081&set=a.341737152524611.90405.341730685858591&type=3&theater
