My Ball

This is MY Ball
All dripped in my drooly trademark.
A certified and unmistakable property of mine

manang gave it to me as a gift.
It is a mini colorful soccer ball,
not like the one used in the games that
Cody fancies,
but it is just perfect to keep me trim and tired.

It fits conveniently in my massive paws.
and can easily fit into my powerful jaws.
It somehow helps in removing the build-up of tartar- or not.
but still, it is my ball- my prized gift.

I play with it.
Inside the house and outside the house,
but always under human supervision.
My hoomans and I play fetch with it.
It makes for the perfect bonding instrument.

Even when I sleep I see my ball
even if it appears as a blur.
The unconscious dog in me keeps an ever watchful eye.
For it is afterall, without any shadow of a doubt,
even for a sleepingdog,
still MINE.

And so the sun rises and sets like this:

Aki: Playing rambunctiously with ball
Poopie: Bored to her wits

Aki: scooting off like a soccer superstar
Poopie: Even more bored and yet silently scheming a heist


And then she’s off!!

Lay off manong Aki! This ball is mine!

It’s inside my bed cage, it’s MINE!!

I said go away, you fat cow!!

There was no way I am giving up without a fight.
Alas, prepare yourself Pooper Scooper…

Toy fight toy fight! Aki you are so similar to Barley! Our ball toys often roll under the sofa where we can't reach them and I would whine for my mum to get it for me. Mum says I'm a grouchy small baby!

Hey take more pics and enjoy yourselves at the beach! It's rainy season over here in Singapore and it's even raining now Boohoo!!! The last time we went to the beach mum didn't even have a decent camera yet BOL! Now she complains her camera is too heavy to bring out! WHAT EXCUSES!!

You can't take that from a little Poopie!

I loved the pictures of you hold your ball with your huge paw!

Will you take your ball to the beach? I hope so cause you will have even more fun then.

That picture of you on the beach when a baby--looks like a professional picture. It's beautiful.

Dino and Family said...

LOL! I have a ball just like yours! It's really bouncy and I love it too! Sometimes, you have to learn to share with Poopie. Hee Hee! Love, Dino

Haha Aki, Doggie Sardines, I like that.
I can hear you shouting: That ball is mine, that ball is mine! (with all the drooly trademark).

Bobby said...

It is a good job the Mops not there he would be off with the ball, he does that every where we go.

i was cheering for poopie hehehe

aki, be careful you don't swallow the ball, okay? the animal doctor has had several cases of labradors with balls in their tummies. i guess they got carried away playing with it.

hi Aki, good for you to get your ball back. we think that balls are the most perfect toys ever. we love balls and we have many of them. we leave them everywhere so we will always have one to play with.
