So I Bought Some KONG Balls For My Gordons

Okay, so I bought my Gordon Setters, a couple of those KONG balls. You know, I have them listed in our favorite products list. Only, I got the round ball with the hole in the middle. My thinking was that the ball wouldn't be so heavy. A few of our Gordons like to catch them in the air. My husband was worry about them getting their teeth knocked out if he through it onto the kennel roof and let them catch it when it came rolling down. Which is what they do with the tennis balls. After the balls came in the mail, I realized that even with a hole through the middle, the ball was still to heavy for this "ball on the roof" game. So, then I gave one to Happy, inside the house. I threw it across the room and said, "get the ball". He pretended to look at the ball and then back at me. I threw it again. And again. And again. I bounced it and bounced it. Sit it in front of him. Teased him with it. NO REACTION. He could not have been any less interested! Can you see his excitement in the pictures? I guess it takes a particular taste for these balls and Kong toys. They LOOK good. They are better than tennis balls for your dog to chew. My dogs just don't seem to like them. Maybe a dog that really loves to chew, as opposed to one who just loves to run and fetch the ball, may enjoy it more. I'm thinking they will be useful for teething puppies.
