Jolly Ball, Cairo style

When Lucy soundly rejected the pink peppermint Jolly Ball that I bought her, I gave it to the dog. Cairo loved, but she loved it in a way it wasn't exactly designed for, and before long it was in many pieces in the back yard.

At the grain store yesterday, they had Jolly Balls especially for dogs. They are made out of harder plastic than the horse version, and they have a rope going through the middle. I got one for Cairo and to my delight, she loved it! She played with it all last night and then today after work, I took her to a near-by field and tossed it around for her.


if you are as terrible at throwing as I am, this toy will make your throwing arm
look great because this toy is really easy to throw far without a lot of effort
(or coordination!).

"take off my jacket!"



she is too cute. here she is throwing the toy for herself.


I couldn't find where she had hidden her collar with the tags on it so she wore
her extra one out.

  7. Cairo is such a pretty girl! :) I think her and Mason would chase each other around for H.O.U.R.S.
