Ball Balancing Rottweiler

Pin It

Jax is still honing his balancing skills and as much as it might appear to be so, that ball is not glued to his head! That green menace, err ball, has been dubbed “my precioussssss” since Jax is over-the-top in love with it and he wants to rub it all over your clothes so you understand JUST HOW MUCH HE LOVES IT.

It is a KONG Squeezz ball and the first toy in a LONG time that he has not destroyed in under 2 minutes. Not because he couldn’t destroy it, but because, for whatever reason, he has deemed it special enough in the world of toys to be lovingly (if not strangely), cared for. It is the queen of all toys to him. Really, it would be impossible to overstate just how much he loves it. It was the best buy ever in terms of loved toys, except I’m not sure it hasn’t turned him just a tiny bit neurotic.

The ball has flat ends now because we had to resort to removing its end caps, which seem to have been glued on somehow. It was getting too well worn and we were afraid he would get them off and eat them. It was too worn, not from rough play but from LOTS of love and attention. Again,  I cannot overstate that fact. It is his precioussssss and he wants it to be our precioussssss too, but only if he is holding it. If you know anything about Rottweilers, you know their intense devotion to anyone or anything they love.
