My story about a Ball

Once upon a time I had a nice yellow squeaky ball. I played with it so much that the squeaker went kerplunk and so I liked pulling off the furs.
Look Mom...No furs!! Isn't that cool? She thought that she should throw it away but I said NO, its not ready yet.
A couple days later she found the ball in this shape. She said Oreo...this ball is done!!
She walked off and left it on the island with the tips hanging over just a tad. I studied and thought Yep, I can do this!! This ball is NOT going in the trash can if I have anything to say about it.
Now....that's what I'm talking about!! NEVER under estimate a determined Scottie. I felt like Air bud!! BOL
Update: My mom is in Colorado and I'm doing ok, I'm still alive. But moms Mom was glad to see her. She's not in the greatest shape but her mind is still alert. Grandma cries a lot and makes mom cry. It's hard to know how much longer she will be with us, its all in God's hand. Mom was glad that she went and will be coming home Monday night. It's all an emotional time for all. I'll be so happy when she gets back home.


  1. Oreo you and I do exactly the same thing to those balls. Probably a Kong ~ that is the only toy that I take apart. I loves the fur.
    It is hard when a parent gets old, we feel for your Mom and pray for her Mom.

  2. It's better that it is a parent. It's not as devastating as one of your children. Oreo, don't be documenting what you've been doing while she's away-it might come back to haunt you. Get better, grandma.

  3. If you need more tennis balls, let us know, Oreo. We have plenty to share!
    Huge hugs to your mom and to your grandma♥

    Love ya lots♥

  4. WAY to GO Oreo.... you really Showed HER how thingys ARE and SHOULD be.... Throwing that ball away would be like throwing out Half a BURGER...

  5. WooHoo Oreo, I am seriously impressed!
    Loves and hugs to Mom and Grandmom

  6. It is hard to throw away a toy you love - I had a blue moose that ended up missing all it's legs and mom had to repair its body with a sock - until one day there was just no longer any more repairs to be done. We are sending good wishes to your Mom's mom.

  7. Well done! Peeps have no idea when toys are actually used up. We have the yellow furs around for ages when we get a tennis ball...way after the rubbery part is gone.

  8. BOL, dat toy's still got life in it. Well, maybe not, but it shouldn't be thrown aways yet!

  9. We are so sorry your mom is dealing with this difficult time. Life can be so hard.

    Excellent ball saving!

  10. The ball isn't done until you say it is done. I will keep your mom and her mom in my prayers.

    Aroo to you,

  11. What a great job getting your ball back!! Jakey likes chewing balls too!!
    We are keeping your Mom's Mom and your Mama in our prayers and sending lots of POTP!
    Smiley Hugs!

  12. Oreo, that is most impressive work with your tennis ball. How you have to turn your attention to comforting Mom when she arrives home, as we think she will be tired and upset.
    All the best,
    Bertie and Gail .

  13. Awesome work Oreo...getting your ball back! We are so sorry for your mom...sending hugs and prayers for her. xo Chloe and LadyBug

  14. Well, I don't know what they were thinking, that is one PAWFECTLY GOOD ball!!

    PeeS... Thinking of your Mum and her Mum and all your family... xoxox

  15. Aw, Oreo. We are thinking your mom and grandma. Glad to hear you are doing well too!
