Dog Ball!

Hooch has us kick a ball for him to fetch - every time we go outside, he comes to us with this ball in his mouth.  Drops it at our feet and waits until we kick it.  Odda runs after him and gets in the way!  Hooch then wrestles with the ball to get a good bite on it.  The ball isn't a hard rubber one.  It 's suppose to have air in it, but it deflates easily.  The hot sun makes it stay inflated, but when it gets cold out, like now, it collapses!   But he's still in the game mood, and wants us to kick this stupid poor deflated ball!   Will have to wait now until spring - and we'll get you a new ball Hooch!

Awww. What a sweet dog. He looks like a lot of fun. He isn't about to share that beat up ball with Odda though. Good thing Odda is willing to let him rule the game. With her size, she could certainly take it away if she wanted. I bet Hooch would stand his ground. Nothing is going to come between him and that ball.

Oh Hooch - that poor ball -- Do you remember the day dad was kicking the ball for you and he took a poor aim and kicked and the ball hit ME right in the face! We all were pretty surprised - glad I didn't have to sport a black eye or nose to work the next day!

Poor Baby Hoochie...with a poor, flat bar. How sad is THAT?
Hooch probably doesnt even know its supposed to be big, round, flat and fun...been too long since it was all that.
He's such a good boy...deserves a nice kick ball from santa that doesnt fly in anyones thats just not nice.
