Bring the US Open Love Home!

Today marks the start of the US Open (which coincidentally coincided six years ago today when I brought North home to NYC)! To celebrate the beginning of this event, I'm rounding up the first round thing to come to mind . . . tennis balls, obviously.
North loves the extra small Air Kong versions 'cause they're super squeaky and fit him perfectly. (He usually tears all the fabric off a normal doggy tennis ball to use the frays to fetch 'em since they don't fit in his mouth.) Since he's pretty darn destructive, I'm shocked how long it takes him to kill the squeakers in this version – they sometimes last a couple months, which is an eternity in his chompers. From flavored to colored, check out all my faves . . . and don't forget to bring Daisy home, too!

i'm always a little scared of tennis balls, I've known dogs whose teeth have whittled down to nothing from years of catching tennis balls and playing with them all their lives. I've also known a few dogs who devour the insides of a sport type tennis ball - scary chemicals there! We do use the Air Kongs, I feel they are as safe as a tennis ball can get.

Zena has the Air Dog Squeaker tennis balls. She plays with them every once in a while. She won't fetch it if you throw the ball, but she will if you roll the ball. And then, she'll only fetch it twice. Then she'll just watch it roll past her feet with the "oooo, bye-bye ball" look.

Flavored...maybe she'll fetch those, instead of watching me throw the ball and then looking at me like are you going to get that?
