When Piper was a young pup,
he loved to carry around a rope toy.
Truthfully, it is still his favorite and
if he gets aggravated about something,
he will grab up his rope and give it a good shake.

Ruairi loves balls.
He really liked the red one in the foreground
until he tried to catch it one day
and his tooth slipped right in it -
now it wobbles as it rolls.

But Mom found wiffle style balls with holes in them
at the Dollar Tree (4 for $1.00)
and Ruairi loves them.

He can play hockey with himself
all day long -
that is until his ball rolls under
either Mom or Dad's chair -
and then we hear a "crunch".
We hope she can purchase them by the case.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

Our late boy Otis was given a nylon ball, that came apart for a battery insertion, then when it was dropped, it made a loud WAAAAH noise. He loved it more than anything and had it for years!

Bambi is like Kira. She spends a little time un-stuffing them, then she is not interested any more!!!
I have even tried making them for her and it just took her a little longer to un-stuffing them!!! Oh well....
Happy day!!!
XXOO, Fern

Kendra loves balls, I'll play tug-o-war if there's a game going, but I don't play with toys by myself. Bella just destroys anything she can find!

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

I can just imagine the games being played by Ruairi who is totally oblivious to the ball being wobbly--They don't let a "broken ball" stop them from having fun do they!!

I've carried around and chewed up many of those ropes too! Your balls look fun. Does your mum ever put dried food pieces inside for you to rattle out?

Katie said...

Nice toys! My humans found a WHOLE box of tennis balls for $2 at a garage sale last year. The learned to hide the box so I don't keep stealing them. Toys are fun, aren't they?

Bella the Westie said...

Hey! Ruiari and I must be made of some of the same stuff. I love balls, too, and can play solitaire ball for hours. And I'm here to say I could do this long before the World Cup started. I've been practicing for two years now (ever since I discovered balls). All the football on the telly is just encouraging me even more.

Counting the days...

It's fun when they choose a favorite toy. Each of mine has a favorite and always knows where it is.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Each of you have your own favorite toys, no need to fight for toys, isn't it nice?
Crunch! Ouch, poor balls!

Inky and Molly said...

We love balls too. I went bonkers at the park yesterday with a tennis ball we found on the way.

Ciara and TD love all kinds of balls too. The ones here with the holes in them belong to the grandkidlets so they don't touch them. But that is quite a bargain you found. Ciara's favorite toys are the ripped and shredded old, very old destuffed stuffies that Mom keeps wanting to throw away.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

So cute!! Ruairi is getting big! Fiona loves her ball and insists on dropping it at my feet every morning as soon as we get up. Doogie loves soccer balls. I believe he would do well on the soccer field!!
