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.  :)

We're joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian's Home.

    OMD Marcus - I can see the joy singing in your eyes... a tuneful inside makes for a peaceful outside!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. I am so happy Marcus you found a ball that would last, and it is a beautiful shade of blue. We pugs like to play with the soft balls for some reason. Tell Jan thank you for the kind comment she sent to us. It warmed moms heart. stella rose

  3. What a pawsome ball Marcus, and we love your ball songs!!

  4. That's pretty cool. Looks like it's keeping you busy

  5. I know all about those outside toys vs inside toys says Dougie Dog and "somepeeps" gets really upset when I mix 'em up and the dirty outsiders get inside! Ooopsie. But I don't care much which is which cause they all taste good to me, bet they all taste good to you, too!

  6. Marcus, what's with all the chewing? I can just imagine the difference between the outside and inside toys...yucky! It's great that you found that blue ball, Jan!

  7. Oohhh... And what a pretty ball it is, too? Indestructible, you say? Sounds like a challenge, to me. MOUSES!

  8. A good ball is a precious thing!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  9. You can have a ball with that one for a good while Marcus! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  10. That looks like a great wonderful fabulous squeaky ball! I'll have you know that I sing to my toys too. Especially when they're stuck under the couch!

  11. Hope you put peanut butter or treats in that fabulous ball! That is what the hole there is for (wink) Enjoy! DakotasDen

  12. What a pawsome blue ball ! We would sing for such a fabulous ball too, for sure ! Purrs

  13. That's a pawsome ball Marcus, if it stands up to your abuse. Enjoy!!!

  14. Oh, Marcus, that photo of you about to hum has plucked the strings of my heart. You are a DARLLING blue ball chewer and that's THAT.
    Love, Loulou

  15. Any ball would need to be indestructible or nearly so to survive Marcus! I'm already impressed that it's lasted long enough for him to make up lyrics about it.

  16. That is a nice new ball.

  17. Marcus that looks like a fun ball to chase and chew on.

  18. Keeping on singing, Marcus. I think you sound lovely.

  19. That looks like a great blue ball, Marcus! And one worthy of signing a happy tune. :)

  20. How cool to get a ball that lasts! I, MJF know how to kill off balls in a hurry least I used to do that. I don't much play with anything theses dyas...but I do love to still chase me a squirrel,BOL!

    Hey, if I had had a ball like yours back in the day I might have sang to it too...afterall I am in the company of a musical furmily! Violin, Piano, French Horn, Clarinet, organ...etc...not to mention voice.
    Oops I gotta go now, petcretary says I am too wordy, BOL!

  21. This is Paul from Rocco & Roxie, the maker of the ball! If this ball is chewed/chomped on, it will last a long, long time. However, if it gets picked at by small bites, it can be torn into small pieces fairly easily. In the last pic above, it looks like Marcus is picking at it!


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
