Play Ball!

I'm so excited about the big Super Bowl pawty this weekend with Joe & Gus & Tanner & Teka! The very first year I lived on Jackman Avenue, the most super coolest football team in the whole Pittsburgh Steelers...won the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, things didn't quite work out for us this year (but they're still super cool!) so we're just going to AZ to hang with our DWBs friends.

I don't really get into playing football balls are more my thing. I prefer to chase them all around the yard, but it's been too rainy this week. I hate rain.

I can still have a good time in the house playing with the t-balls. I've learned to entertain myself pretty well.

And there is something special about these indoor tennis balls...they're MAGIC!

Turn your speakers up REALLY loud and I'll share with you my MAGIC tennis balls.

In case that video doesn't work...try this one.

Imagine that, Mr. Sherman...who could care less about tennis all of a sudden interested in the MAGIC tennis balls!

He must think they're made out of chicken backs.

Or he's trying to be like his BFF, Wally...who is WAY cooler because he can jump super high AND he plays with PINK tennis balls!

Never fear...I got it back. I played beautiful music for Mom all night!

(in case my video didn't work...the MAGIC tennis balls SQUEAK! Very Loud.)

I can hear your ball squeak! Do you play with it in the middle of the night or your mom takes it away like my mom does with mine?

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Lola,
Wahahah.. the MAGIC tennis ball can sure squeak LOUDLY! (Keep a close eye on it though cos I suspect it might disappear like magic overnight.. anyway if it disappears, I am sure the humans hid it!)

Simba said...

That is one squeaky ball. I bet the humans love that.

Mack said...

Lola in action! What a great way to start the day! Woo hoo!

Where did you get those? Mom says she never seen them before!

Maya and Kena said...

Hi Lola!
We've only seen that magic tennis ball once with another doggie at the park, and boy, did Maya fall in love with it, she wouldn't give it back!! We agree, the squeak is music to our ears!!
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

Amber-Mae said...

Lola, you look like you've gotten drunk with your squeaky tennis ball! I got that ball once from mah friend & I absolutely loved squeaking it all day long until one day, the squeaker dided...I was devastated!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Sophie Brador said...

Lola, You look like a little baby puppy in that squeaky tennis ball pic. You are a super duper cutey, and I love your big floppy lips. I think I need a squeaky tennis ball.


wally said...

Sherman may not be a tight end like me but that's just cuz he's practicing to be a big tuff running back like The Bus!

My sissy gets those squeaky balls and it drives my ma ape batty. Fortunately Ethel does not have a soft mouth and she manages to pop 'em within 5 minutes of getting them.

And the Canine Kids said,
We love squeaky tennis balls and we are so very jealous but we are glad you are enjoying yourself and having fun.
We just saw the set up Joe has for the Super Bowl party and it is unbelievably cool! Maybe the trip to Arizona will make up for the Steelers not playing this year.

Petra said...

Hey Lola, my little bark sounds just like your tennis ball squeak.

Isn't that sad?!

Lady Kaos said...

Tennis balls that squeak? That is the best, most wonderful toy ever. I played both videos at the same time. It was hilarious!

Maggie & Mitch said...

We were sleeping away in the family room when mom clicked the start button on your video, Lola! We couldn't get into the computer room fast enough to see what was going on!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

ChaChi Lu said...


You are way too cute with your squeaky ball. That is a great way to keep yourself entertained. So fun!

ChaChi and JET

Joe Stains said...

holy CRAP those things are SERIOUSLY loud!!! but so cool!

Kathryn and Ari said...

Don't forget about puppy bowl: it's our favorite part of Sunday!

The Brat Pack said...

Dot-Spot went nuts when she heard your squeaky ball...I think she needs one too. Or maybe not, she's irritating enough as-is.


PS Is Penny gonna post more pics soon?

Kapp pack said...

And even worse than rain is freezing rain...that's what we're supposed to get tonight!

Kisses, Sky boy
(There's always next year!)

Stanley said...

Oh Lola Girl!

I LOVE your juicy pink jowls! I also LOVE your eyepatch and your tremendous squeaking powers! From another big fan of the magic tennis balls, it's great to see somedog like you making sweet music!

How can your mama stay behind the camera and not hug you TO DEATH everytime she sees your cute face?? Hmmm? Can you tell me?

Goober love & smooches (from me & my girl ~ she LOVES your face too),

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

Hiya Lola! No worries, both videos worked fine for us here in Scotland.

I bet your Mama just lurves it when you play with those squeaky tennis balls, it is such fun to give the hoooooomans plenty of musical accompaniements to their tv watching!

I am coming to the Super Bowl pawty as well, although I don't know anything much about the Super Bowl.

being Scottish........

But I am bringing a BOWL with me, just in case.

love and licks, you cutey pie!

Marvin xxxxxxxxxxx

Katherine and Pippa, said...

I will play inside with you away from the rain Lola. I will let you have the magic tennis ball too. I only chase them round once or twice and then I get bored. Actually I might go find Penny for a snuggle and leave you to play with the tennis ball.


Tasha & Eva said...

That is a very cool t-ball, Lola! We need to get some of those. If it squeaks, we want it! When we dad played us those videos we went boonkers and we both ran and got squeaky toys! We also really like your new collar, Penny. Very fashionable! Have fun watching the Super Bowl with your humans. We'll be doing that, too, with some of dad's buddies. That means that there is sure to be food falling on the floor just for us!! Way Cool! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

Izzie said...

You're coming to Arizona???? Arizona??? Are you going to come to Tucson while you're here to visit ME??????? I can't go to Phoenix cuz I get carsick. But I'd WUV to see you!

Hammer said...

Hi Mates
Thank you very much for your Barkday wishes for me and Beau.
Hope you have a pawsome time at your Super Bowl pawty on the weekend.
I liked your vids.
Love from Hammer

Penny & Poppy said...

We love your squeakie tennys! Mom needs to find us some! So far, we haven't been allowed to have tennis balls because we can make one bald in 2.3 seconds! We think we need to try the squeakie ones!

Poppy & Penny

Pacco de Mongrel said...

pink? y mine are all yellow...

we hd rain everyDAY!!! and is sickening... i can hardly go out n either wet or muddy...

Lenny said...

Can't wait to see you all at the party! I'm sorry your Steelers are not playing. We like the Colts but I'm going to cheer for the Patriots, because I was born in New England.

Your friend, Lenny

Mango said...

You really know how to go after a squeeky! I surprised it survived your assault.
I am getting cabin fever myself as we are getting snow, sleet, and rain.
Can't wait to get to AZ for super bowl.


-The Mullin Clan's Mommy- said...

Hawoo - sounds like yur squeaky tennis ball needs oiled! I gots a football that squeaks very loud, too. I drive mommy & daddy nutsy playing & pushing at it alls the time.

The Daily Echo said...

I think we need some of them! Meeka thinks it's his job to personally de-squeak any toy that enters the house so he squeaks it till it dies.

Gus and Louie said...

Mom played your video and I just couldn't figure out what that noise was. I tried nudging her but that didn't work either.. Of course Louie is deaf and didn't hear anything. Poor little guy... But mom says he has never heard anything so he doesn't know any different..

Big Sloppy Kisses

Jake and Taryn said...

What an adorable video!! We have the "magic" tennis balls at our house too! Both of our dogs came running in to where our computer is wondering where the tennis ball was at!! :)

babyphat523 said...

That's one fancy ball! I think our pack would go crazy for those! They do like those special pink ones like Wally plays with :)

Anonymous said...

Not much beats a squeaky tennis ball!!


The Zoo Crew said...

I got SO excited when I heard your squeaky ball......I told mom that I need one of those since I'm a ball AND squeaky fool :)

Peace + Paws,


4xBs said...

hi kids, we have some of those squeaking tennis balls too. Benson squeaked one so much that it's squeaker broke. mom was so happy. we agree that tennis balls are the best toy in the entire world.


Bella the Boxer said...

Lola, I used to have a MAGIC tennis ball that squeaked, but mean Mom took it away because I would chase it under the furniture and scratch to get it. Now I can only play ball outside but, like you, I hate the rain! Don't forget to send me your snail mail so I can send you a Valentine.

xoxo - Bella

Hi Lola
When Dixie heard your tennis ball squeak she jumped right on the keyboard!! She did that side to side thing with her head and mum thought she looked adorable!
We both love sqeaky things and I usually try to chew that sqeaky thing out of whatever it is in.

Jackson said...

Ooooo, squeaky! I bet your mum really enjoys it when you play with them! J x

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

I usually don't mind puppies. My favorite one was Panda, the Rottie mix. He had a little white on him so it was like someone put you and me together in a puppy! Awesome!


ps. I checked out the bully stick site you recommended to Peanut. Whoa!
