The Great Tennis Ball Debate

Our Mom treats us like such babies sometimes. We used to play with REAL tennis balls, until one day she found these stupid little ones that she thought would be perfect for "smaller dogs." (Um, who is she calling small?) Anyway, yeah, I guess they're easier to catch but they're so flimsy and stupid. Fievel can bite through them in a few hours and then they don't even bounce anymore. Not that Fievel cares because she doesn't play with toys, she just destroys them. But me? I'm sporty and playing catch is my favorite game. This kinda screws up my whole day.

But yesterday, Mom found one of our old, REAL tennis balls. Look at it next to the little stupid one.

Isn't it glorious in all of its big, green splendor? I could have spent all day just smelling it, looking at it, relishing in the glory of it all.

But then you-know-who saw it.

She got it right out from under my nose! It all happened so fast, I couldn't even tell you how she did it but she took it over to her couch and then glared at me.

And then started her slow, but steady, destruction.

She is pure evil.

She pulls all the fuzzy green stuff off! She has no respect! Any well-mannered shiba knows that the fuzzy green stuff is WHAT MAKES THE TENNIS BALL SO GREAT!

And now I'm stuck ONCE AGAIN with the stupid little one that doesn't bounce. Where is the justice?

I don't even want to play anymore.

*Big sigh*

Hi Wiley & Fievel!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - you two sound like fun! I looove shibas - there's a sheeb named "Turk" in my neighborhood that I see in the park sometimes and we always have a blast.

Wiley, I totally agree with you, faux tennis balls deserve to be destroyed but REAL tennis balls are to be coveted! I always have a few hidden in my backyard (ok sometimes I forget about them for a year or so) just in case I need a backup.

I'm going to add you two to my friends list - hope that's ok!!!! *wiggles nubbin tail*

Hi buddies,

Welcome to - it is great to meet you and I am sure you will make lots of new friends here :-)

ACK! My brother does the same thing - why in the WORLD would anyone EAT the green stuff off a tennis ball?! It makes me so MAD! And then my girl gets the tiny little ones for him too.... *sigh* There's just so much injustice in the world. Wiley, I feel your pain.

Anyone else sitting here at their computer thinking, "tennis balls are yellow... aren't they?"

Hazel said...

Marcie I am with you. They look yellow to me as well but I thought it had to be me!!! Thanks girlfriend.
Anyway, Fivey is a bitch! She falls into the "thank God God made her cute" category!!!
Poor Wiley.

You should only have the REAL tennis balls. I don't think I'd like the mini ones. In fact, I like to play with giant ones!
