And Otto goes berserk

I got through a couple of my projects, then we paid the bills and managed date night. We had a couple of errands along the way, one of which involved stopping at Pet Smart for dog food. Lo and behold, pumpkin balls are available once more.

Otto is bouncing off the walls with joy. Frankie doesn’t know what to think. She has only had tennis balls, and these don’t have fur.

Ever since he was a puppy, the pumpkin ball was his favorite toy. They have a squeaker inside and they flash when they bounce. Otto is a simple soul. It doesn’t take much to make him happy. Maybe I should take a lesson from him.

  2. I remember you saying how much he loved pumpkin balls. I may have to look for those for my doggos. Glad he’s so happy.

  3. A happy bulldog with his pumpkin ball. You can’t ask for much more than that.

  4. I was thinking something similar when Lilie was going grazy over what’s left of one of her teddies. This thing is basically a scrap of fabric now, and she was playing with it with such delight you’d swear it was the greatest toy in the universe. The smallest thing makes her happy, and she rarely isn’t overjoyed by one thing or another. I wish I knew her secret to being so happy all the time.

  7. That’s adorable. Do you stock up on them or is it kept as a seasonal event for him?


  8. I think we could all take a lesson from Otto. It’s the simple things in life that often matter most.

  12. Awww! Punkin balls are back! Sadie’s preferred ball is the middle Kong that looks like a tennis ball but squeaks. She doesn’t like the bigger or smaller ones — perhaps I should have named her Goldilocks ๐Ÿ™‚
