My New Blue Ball
Marcus: ♫ My new blue ball. My new blue ball.
I luv, luv, lu-u-uv my new blue ball.
♫ I bite it and chew it and nudge it with my nose.
I hold it, then shove it, and follow where it goes.
I roll it and bounce it. It travels everywhere -
Taylor: Stop with the new blue ball song! I've heard it so many times today you have me singing it. Jan said if she trips over it one more time, she's going to make you eat it.
Marcus: She can't! It's for aggressive chewers and is supposed to be almost indestructible. That's why she bought it. Guess she'll just have to keep tripping over it.
Taylor: If it keeps you from deflating another football or soccer ball or chewing up your other toys, I guess it was a good purchase. But stop singing about it!
Marcus: Okay. Can I hum?
Taylor: No! Just chew.
Marcus: ♫ *gnaw, gnaw, gnaw* ♫
Taylor: And no gnawing to the tune either!
Marcus: This ball was a lot more fun when I could sing. I wonder if I can bounce it to the tune while Taylor naps?
Jan: This is NOT, NOT, NOT a review!!! I purchased this ball on Amazon because it is supposed to be tough and contain no BPAs. Anyone who has been reading this blog knows Marcus needs tough! He has deflated more balls with his first bite than I can count. He loves this. I wish I could afford a second one, so we could play ball in the dirty/muddy dog pen because this ball is the right size for him to play with but not to choke to death on if I threw it and he caught it wrong, but it isn't possible, so he'll have to make do with one in the house. (It holds his attention and keeps him from constantly annoying the cats.)
He did take it outside once and dropped it when he went out to pee and I had to tell him it is an inside only ball. I think he's plotting how to get it past me again, but his outside toys are gross and not allowed in the house except in a special receptacle, even though they are washed first.
He really does love his new ball. It's no wonder he can't stop singing about it. :)
