    Default Jolly Eggs!

    Since he was a wee pup, Stig has always been fascinated with balls. Basketballs, soccer balls, rubber ball toys, he loves them all! The issue was that he can destroy them all. His bite seems to puncture anything he can get his paws on! Then I saw a post on ebn about a hard plastic toy called the Jolly Egg, did a little research, and knew we had to try it. On his very first Christmas, he enthusiastically opened his gift ... a 12" red jolly egg ... and it was love at first sight! It's the perfect toy for him because the egg shape makes it difficult for his jaw to grab. And the hardness of the plastic makes it very durable. Many days when we notice that he has a lot of energy to burn, even after a long walk, we give Stiggy the trusty jolly egg and he would play with it for hours. A little word of caution, though .... watch your shins!

    I had one for our boxer many years ago. They're fun to watch play with the big eggs!

    I just bought one for my dog. He loves it. I had to take it away after 1 minute because he was so out of breath. Now he paces by where I hid it out of his reach.

    We have a fellow ball lover as well!! Jolly's are a huge hit here…another bully owner suggested a Yoga ball as an out-door toy, so we gave it a shot…HOLY MOLY it was hysterical to watch and the ball is still going strong. It's too big to bite, so it won't pop and it is quite a workout.

    As with every toy.... some can destroy anything - I bought one of these for Banks and she had holes in it within 30 minutes. With her, the only thing she did not destroy was her soft rubber spike ball - not sure what it was about that one ball, but she loved it and it lasted for 7 yrs ( i bought it when she was 2 and she past at 9)... still have it, but Lambeau is not interested in it at all. just like food... it is trail and error in finding what they will love, tolerate and destroy

    They are a little strange with their toys alright the strangest ones make it through and the rest just don't make it. But at this point I'll try anything to keep him happy and interested.
