Best Toy Ever!

This is my favorite toy - it's my basketball. All right, maybe not the best toy EVER, but it's definitely one of my all time favorites! I've had it for ages and ages (well since I was a year old anyway)!

I've tried a couple of different balls outside - there was a soccer ball (I ate the skin off of that one), and then there was the dodgeball (popped it in seconds), and of course there are all the tennis balls (those tend to get run over by the lawn mower). My Auntie Sadie loves to play with a football, so Mommy and Daddy looked for one but couldn't find one so they finally settled on a basketball. When they got the basketball they thought that it wouldn't work - since I couldn't really get my mouth around it.

But there are a couple of secret to it:
1. It's not a full sized basketball - it's a "girl's size", but since I'm a girl that's just fine right?!

2. Due to a lot of time outside and stuck in the snow last winter, it's lost some air.

3. My mouth has gotten bigger! Ha ha!

Georgie....ur yardie is so pretty!!! Looks like you have a lot of fun chasin' ur basketball all over the place!! Frankly, I only chase balls, frisbees or toys if they happen to be in Scruffy's mouth...it drives me nuts to see that foxy playin' with em...so I go and steal em from him...

Our pool's still out for another week or so...then it will go and live in the garage this winter.

Startin' to feel like fall!!!

Love, Laciegirl

Basketball! I've never played with one before. Sounds really fun though. Hmm..then again, wonder if my mouth can go any bigger.

We've never seen a basketball. Sounds like fun. You sure have a big yard Georgie.

We have a basketball too, Georgie, but ours has a rope on it so it's easier to grab! We wish we could get together and play some basketball with you!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hi Georgie! That basketball looks like loads of fun. We have a basketball, but ours is a stuffy. At least, we think we still have one...I think it's at the bottom of the toy pile.

Oh wow Georgie - that basketball looks like lots of fun. I must admit that I do love a good tennis ball. Daddy tries really hard not to run over them with the lawn mowing monster but when he does, he feels so guilty that he buys me another 3 to make up for it. Works for me!!

Perhaps we could play a good game of fetch with youyr basketball one day!!

Hi Georgie

It is great to have a favourite toy. I have a Boomer ball, which is indestructable, not sure if you can get them in the USA?

Have a good weekend

Georgie, we would like to play with that ball, too! We like to put ours in the pool. We, well Luc, puts rocks in the pool. Mom doesn't like that so much.

Hey Georgie!

Here's a secret - once you bite the ball hard, it gets softer. I did this with my soccer ball and now it's PERFECT :)
