Ode to a dead soccer ball

Oh soccer ball,
you were so round,
but now you're almost flat.


Your insides now are outsides,
Your shape is not so fat.


But I will play with you, old ball,
until I have to go.

And then, dear friend,
I'll leave you here
for someone else to throw.


For soon another puppy,
will find you in the grass.
O won't you let him play with you,
and let him sniff your...
COVER.

COVER, COVER, COVER.
It was always going to be COVER.
And shame on you for thinking otherwise! :)



And just because it's got a bunch of puppies in it:

    I have played with the g-kids balls and they just happen to pop when I sink my teeth into it and yep, then you have a flat ball. I dont care, I play with it anyway and you know it is more fun to throw around that way!! So go at it with the flat ball.

    Cool teaching deal with the GR. Who knew they could be that smart, LOL

  5. Did that hurt to have the ball stuck on your nose? The Goldies (I like those blondes!) in the video mind WAY too well!

  16. Jack - that first photo is priceless. The Tall Guy should enter that into some kind of contest because he would win. Thank you for the great video!!

  17. Gosh, golly, gee wiz1 Our heads are all full up with smarts now. Our doggie videos on our blog http://bumpasshounds.blogspot.com aren't about smart stuff, they're about drinking bear and eating food stuff; which is better than physics.
