I've found the fountain of youth!

My mama came home with a new toy for me a couple of days ago - and since then I've turned into a completely crazy 4 month old puppy again!

This toy is grrrrrrrreat! It's called "Jolly Ball" and it's a soft plastic ball inside a tough outer ball, and it drives me absolutely NUTTY. Sometimes I stick my nose inside one of the holes and tongue kiss the inner ball, and sometimes I sit and bark at the whole toy until I go horse. This toy is evil and loveable all at the same time.

I even look more like a puppy! And, I didn't have to buy a jar of $1,000 face cream or go under a knife, or swim in some germy pool of water in a far off country.
Patches doesn't understand my love for this new toy, and that is A-OK with me - because it means I don't have to share. He does a perfect job of staying out of my way when I am rolling it around the house. Besides, he's still a crazy puppy and doesn't need that fountain of youth yet.

Hi Sparky!
That looks like a super fun toy! I am glad it makes you happy and you don't have to share with Patchy!
Love Clover xo

G'day Sparky

Is this Jolly Ball really tough on the outside? I mean is it strong enough for a bone cruncher to play with?

Sparky!!! I've missed you! Your picture sure does make you look like a young puppy again! The Jolly Ball looks like a lot of fun. I've never tried any toys that big...if it is not soft and destroyable...I'm usually not too interested. Have fun and don't be a stranger!!!

Thanks for the new toy review. I'm going to see if I can get one. You do look like a pup again.

As a lady of a 'certain age,' I'm going to ask my Mom for a fountain of youth, er, jolly ball, too! (Have you thought about doing infomercials? You're so cute you'd sell MILLIONS!)

Hi Sparky! Love the new toy.....a jolly ball! It sounds like lots of fun! You do look just like a puppy again! I'll have to get my mom to invest in one of those to preserve my puppyhood!!

I have one of those. But it is boring after a while. I am glad you enjoy yours.


Petra said...

I've never seen a ball like that before, but it looks like fun.

Do you think Patches will change his mind?!
