Happy Fodder's Day!

Hi everybody!!!

Well, I'm back home from my big weekend with Asta and boy, oh, boy did I have a great time! Her Mommi told my Mommy a very funny story. Seems like not long after I arrived at Asta's house, I went into the bathroom and stared at the bathtub for a long time. A couple hours, in fact. Asta's Mommi even asked her Daddi if he thought I was alright. Finally, I started howling like a coyote and barking and they came in and looked in the tub and there was my favorite tennis ball! Finally! I thought they'd never catch on.

You see, I'm a rather fastidious terrier and every now and then, I like to give my favorite tennis and racquet balls a nice soak in the tub. As I couldn't turn on the water at Asta's house, I put the ball into the tub to dry clean it. 

Here's my laundry day routine:

Drop the ball in soapy water. Ignore the human who may be in the same soapy water.

Next, you want to stir the ball around a bit in the water to wash away dirt or germs. (Or other dog slobber.)
Really push the ball around in the suds to make sure it's really clean.

Retrieve, rinse, and repeat. 

Sure the bubbles tickle, but the results are well worth it!

Hope everyone's having lots of fun with their Daddys today, whether they be two or fourlegged!

Your pal,

Petey, it's very smart of you to wash your tennis balls so they stay nice and clean.

Petey Boy!

You KILL ME, man! I heard that story from Asta and I thought I was going to pee all over the couch. It's really a testimony to your love for your balls. That is something I can really respect.

Goober love,
