Toy Review

Woo, everypup and everycat. It's me, Dave. Some of you have asked me about one of the really cool toys I was playing with the other day. In particular, my fellow Kong-on-a-Rope lover, Golden Sammie commented, "Love that toy - what you got there - some kind of ball-on-a-rope????? Cool!" Woo, Sammie! It's the coolest! I've had it for a while now, but just within the past week decided it's my favorite! Here's a picture of it:

Double Tennis Ball-on-a-Rope!

It doesn't squeak, but it's got all kinds of other stuff going for it! Here are some of the things I like to do with it:

Me, Dave, ready to PLAY!!!

It's easy for your biped to throw it really far - even in 40 mile-an-hour winds like we had the other day - so you can do lots of this:

"Here I come!!!"

If you need to catch your breath, you can chew on it a bit - and it's really strong!

"Gimme a minute here, Mom!"

Then, when you're ready to get up and start running again, it's ready, too!

Cool action shot of me playing "Fetch"

Doesn't that look like fun? You can play Tuggy-Tug with it, too, but Mom didn't get any pix of us playing that game.

"This cool toy wears me out!"

It's a very fun toy and I heartily recommend it - especially to those of you who love to play Fetch like I do. This is how happy it makes me:

"Happy, happy, happy!"

How's that for putting a smile on my face?!? Woo!


PS: Some of you have also asked about Mom's camera - most of the photos are taken with her Nikon CoolPix P90. Some (including several of the shots above) are actually snapped with her iPhone. She is editing with PhotoShop Elements 6 for Mac. Woo.


  1. Hey Dave,
    We have one of those toys too! I just love running under the table with it and Biloxi chases me. We do play tug with it too. And we all agree it is a great chewy toy.

    We got that toy as well and it's really lots of fun! Fetch is really one of your fave playtime and with a fun toy like that, it is quite hard to resist.

  5. That looks like a fun, multi-purpose toy Dave! And your smile made us smile too!

  6. Dave, that toy looks wonderful!! Mom will have to get me one because I love those types of toys. Being strong is an extra bonus too for me!!! Love the last picture with you smiling! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  7. Wow you sure had fun with that toy.. Your mum caught the action great..HUgs GJ xx

  8. Is Kong paying you for this commercial? If not, they should be because you're doing a great job selling that toy! :)

  9. Dave, that looks like a super fun toy! Mom and I love your photos today...especailly the last 2 with the big smiles. And we always love your freckles ;o)
    Tell Ammy I liked her joke yesterday.

  10. Dave!
    Sure you look happy, happy, happy!
    Happy Saturday to all of you!
    Kisses and hugs

  11. Great toy!
    I have a habit of leaving all my ropey toys out in the rain and dragging them through the garden so they go most untasty! Looks like you take perfect care of yours!


  12. That looks like a WAY fun toy Dave, thanks for the review!!!


  13. Wow! Thanks, Dave, for all that information! Looks like you are really having a ball (heheh) with that new toy! I think I like the kong so much cause the thrower can huck it so far. So if this cool toy can go far, I bet I'd like it too! I'll check it out and let you know! Thanks for the great review!

  14. Woo dave, khool toy! It looks like it could even be Moo-proof! Love seeing that big smile on your face, buddy!

  15. I have rarely seen such a happy face, Davy!


  16. Dave, that was a great review of your toy.
    We wondered why your mom couldn't play tug and take a photo at the same time.
    Or is it because you won and she didn't want to look like the loser!
    Love your happy face.

  17. That looks like great fun! Now for sure Monty will want one of those!

  18. That's one very happy husky!!!


  19. Hello Dave and army! Nice to meet you all. You are all beautiful pups! Thank you so much for dropping by our blog :)
    Hope you can make friends with your calico kitty! Keiko says she loves meeting new humans, cats, dogs, anybody! Maybe if your calico girl is shy you can introduce yourselves from a bit of a distance first! After she likes your smell, I'm sure you'll make really nice friends!!
    Purrrrs to all of you!

  20. For some reason, Sam, who loves Tennis Balls more than anything in the world and wouldn't hurt one, likes to take apart the tennis balls on the rope toys and just play with the rope! Hope you are enjoying yours, Dave!


  21. Hey! We have that photoshop elements too. How come our photos aren't cool like yours? Have to work on that.

    Great toy review. Of course anything with a tennis ball is fun.

  23. Your toy looks such fun Dave, we love seeing you playing fetch. We LOVE fetch.... you look so happy! :)

  24. For some reason, mom thinks that I might hit her in the knee with that toy. She said something about holding one end in my mouth and shaking my head as hard as I can.

    That last pic is my FAVORITE pic of you! :)
