Toby’s barkday was at the end of last month, but thanks to me getting sick and then the car breaking, I wasn’t able to get him any presents. This week, G & G took pity on my little boy and brought him a fresh bag of tennis balls. The down side is that now he wants to play all day every day. The up side is he he is working off some of those holiday pounds.
Get that camera out of my face and throw the ball already!
To Toby, the game is to either catch the ball or touch it with his mouth. Then it is considered out of play.
The first thing Toby does when he gets a new ball is chew a fuzz handle into it.
Like most places, it is snowy and barely in the teens here. Toby doesn’t mind going out because he has a nice pet human to warm his paws when they get cold. If the pet human tries to thaw her paws on a warm puppy tummy, though, all heck breaks loose. Toby’s pet human is grateful for the tennis ball game so they don’t have to freeze as much.
Care to find out what Bitey and Toby have been up to? Then check out Dream Our World! Inside, the boys view the world of art from a canine perspective and enjoy a day of unsupervised fun.
Dream Our World is available at my shop at L Bowman Studios.
We know our place….
And we’re oddly satisfied with it. 🤔
OHHH HAPPY BARKDAY TOBY SWEETHEART !
UNCLE FLICKA WAS THE TENNIS BALL FAN !!
Toby says: Thank you!
I always wanted a puppy who played ball. I’m glad Toby enjoys the game so much. 😊
Happy Belated Birthday, Toby!!! YAY!!! 🙂
Ha! I love that you put handles on the balls so you can carry them! 😀 Coop just carries them in his mouth. You have more balls than Coop has! Coop likes to play goalie, too! He doesn’t let any balls get past him! 😀
Cold human-bean hands on your tummy! Oopy! I do that to Cooper! 😮
PATS and RUBS and (((HUGS))) for you and your Mom!!! 🙂
Toby says: Thank you for remembering my birthday. I loved the socks you posted. In fact I’ve chewed them up already!
Coop, you’ve got to try handles on the balls. Then you can carry several plus a stuffy. 😊
Toby. Do not eat the fuzzy handle on the tennis ball or you will end up with a very sore tummy. HAPPY BURPDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Burpday…how appropriate! Terriers are known for their burping. 😂
So far, I’ve shown no interest in the handles other than as handles. I like to bite the balls until they crunch into a bunch of pieces. Maverick, do you do that too?
Maverick tears the covers off and ears the covers, therefore Maverick does not get that type of ball. He does, however, enjoy the squeaky type
Dang Maverick, do tennis ball covers really taste that good? – Toby
Happy Barkday, Buddy! Max says, “You’re lucky Toby, I used to have balls but no more.”
Cast your balls upon the water, and they shall return after many days!
Happy birthday. You are so shy. You know we would have given you a big party.
Actually, mommy forgot it was my birthday until it was almost over. Tsk, tsk.
Toby does look trimmer! A belated happy barkday to Toby!
it’s always nice to see a happy pupperino. Happy Birthday Toby!
