Today just featuring a girl and her ball...
So want to know the trick?
Lacrosse balls! They last a lot longer than tennis balls, and unlike a tennis ball she can't destroy it in a matter of seconds! So for now tennis balls are for fetch and lacrosse balls are for chewing. Given the choice she'll always pick a tennis ball over any other type of ball we've tried. And we've tried many, basketballs are kind of fun, she likes slightly deflated playground balls, softballs don't last more than 30 seconds, soccer balls she isn't really interested in, hard rubber balls are ok but tennis balls are the real dream for this silly gal.
I think she likes how she can squish them and have them entirely slobber soaked. Ooshy, gooshey, slimy, so much so that when I chuck her tennis ball I am sometimes sprayed with collateral spit as the ball goes whizzing through the air.
"Ahhh, tennis ball. Oh how I love thee..."
Bowling for pibbles!
