We don't play tennis, but we still go through plenty of tennis balls around here. Labs and tennis balls go together just like labs and water.
All 3 dogs love to chase balls, however, Sassy is the only true "retriever". She brings the ball right back, lays it at your feet, and immediately starts barking for you to throw it again. Buddy gets the ball and then wants you to chase him.
Zack also loves to chase the ball, but his motives are different.
Zack destroys tennis balls. He starts by pulling off the fuzzy cover, which usually gets stuck in his teeth in the process. He then chews on the ball until he pops a hole in it. It makes Sassy so mad, she gets in his face and barks.
Just a few of the dead tennis balls I have found in the dog exercise area.
If you have any old, flat tennis balls, we gladly accept donations.
