The Balloon Tree

The other day I found a ball on the ground. It wasn't your usual ball. It was soft and didn't bounce very far. The tall guy said that it was a balloon. As a matter of fact, he said it was a magic balloon. I asked him where these magic balloons come from and he said they came from the balloon tree.

"Balloon tree?", I scoffed. "There's no such thing as a balloon tree!"

"Oh yes", the tall guy said, "all people and their puppies have their own balloon tree. One day, when you have been a very especially good puppy, we will find ours. Some puppies never have anyone to help them find their tree. But it is not an ordinary balloon tree - it is a MAGIC balloon tree. It is magic because it talks to me. Once we have found our tree, it tells me how lucky I am to have found each YOU!"

Well, guess what?


  1. Tall guy tells tall tales, no? Say that 5 times fast! Just like that story about squirrels in a moose suit. Of course I cant prove it wasn't so charges against Moose have been dismissed. Moose says thanks to TG!

  2. I have magic bubbles and they take me to visit my friends when I need to. Is that the same as a balloon tree?? Go on an adventure.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  3. Congratulations on finding your balloon tree Jack! You ARE a good boy :)

  4. Woof! Mmmmm A magic balloon tree that talks to you ... Mmmmm. Lots of Golden Woofs!Sugar

  5. Ah Jack....that is about the sweetest thing I have ever heard!!! You and TG are lucky to have found each other and your balloon tree!!!
    From now on when I see a balloon in a tree I'll remember this story.

  7. Oh Jack, you crack me up wiff your towel and half chewed ball and ballon tree! I wonder if there are any Balloon Trees over here?
    It looks like you had fun at the dog show. Tell your dad thanks fur sharing all those great photos.


  8. Jack, I was like you thinking umm... YAH..... a balloon tree!! dont think so...but....seeing is believing so I guess you better listen to the tall guy from now on, maybe he does know what he is talking about!!

    Looking for my balloon tree

  9. Do da balloons haveta be in a tree? Mom almost passed out blowin' up my balloons for my birthday video. She got dizzy and had ta sit down. Does that count that she thinks she's lucky to have found me?

    I think you are lucky to have found your 2 legger-even if he does make stories up about magic balloons.

  10. I am going out right after lunch to find a balloon tree. We have LOTS of trees in MN. I hope I can find mine! Thanks for letting me know about are such a good friend.

  11. I thought for a minute TG was drinking at the park...
    Lovely balloon tree story!

  12. WOW a BALLOON tree???? I want one!!!


  13. I have NEVER seen a balloon tree - i'll be right there to take a look!!!

  14. Hey jack,
    Have TG tell you about the kite tree and the TP tree. We've seen 'em. Some times it's easy to find balloon trees because there's little kids standing near them and pointing at the balloons and crying very LOUDLY. If you're really like you might find one of the rare R/C airplane trees.
