An 8 month old golden retriever chewed up this braided rug made
by the owner's mother when the owner was a girl. It includes material
from her father's old navy blue uniform. She was sick about it and she
and her mother brought it to me. The most difficult thing was removing
a pancake size blob of hardened plastic that had melted and hardened
making one side of the rug unuseable. I removed some outer rows and
used the salvaged material to repair the dog problems. Getting rid of
the "blob" was done with a hot iron and a hair dryer- took
a long time!
Her mother was a very good braider and this rug will last forever.

"We are delighted with the results. With the history behind
the rug there was no way I could not invest in repairing it. Thanks
again for your kindness and expertise."...Bethel CT
