Here's a million-dollar invention that somebody should come up with and then sell in info-mercials: Shoelace End Fixer! Our puppy chews the ends of these things off and I've put Scotch Tape on them, but this doesn't quite look right. And it's not tight enough to jam through the little shoelace holes. Here, I've fixed the top one. I even cut it off with a scissors so it looks neat, but it's not the same.
