I made this rug for Ladybug because the old one just smelled plain awful - even vacuuming it with Pet Fresh was no help. I crocheted it with 3 strands of nylon rug yarn using a P hook. It drove me crazy because the strands were all twisted and the only way to get them untwisted was to cut them. I had so many ends to weave in. I had thought that I was going to crochet a rug for Tex but I changed my mind. I'll just have to get him a real rug for his bed.
