We loved that video!
And the way you threw it up in the air and caught it was brilliant!
I was a little worried when it rolled under the couch, thank dogness it rolled right back out!

Wow you were very clever with that ball and played all by yourself with it. Mosw woofies I see with a ball have to get the beans to throw it for them. You are a very clever woofie.
Best wishes and love to Phantom, I hope he is doing ok.

Love GJ xx

Hi, Thunder...

Great job finding your own fun...

Tennis balls are sooo much fun...They just never stop moving...And, you have mastered the throwing & catching part all by yourself...

Thoughts & Prayers for Phantom...

Great video. Even had a suspenseful moment when the couch threatened to eat the ball. We were nervous.

P.S. - You have a lot of toys!

Clive said...

Great video Thunder! You are great at amusing yourself - I love playing with tennis balls too!

Paws crossed for Phantom.

Take care

Alasandra said...

Hi Thunder, I do that with my ball too. I went to my first obedience class yesterday. It was lots of fun. ~Fenris

Hi Thunder. ~S,S, & C

Mango said...

WOW! I never thought of that. I would try it myself if I was allowed to have tennis balls.



WoW Thunder. Loved the video. You throw the ball in the air and catch it just like Andy does. Looks like you was having lots of fun.

Hopefully Phantom will be able to play with you soon.


GSD Adventures said...

OMG! That looks like an awesome time! Cool ball!

We haven't been able to watch the video yet (dial up..) but wanted to say hi. We're sorry we mssed yesterday's post and we wanted to say that we're thinking of you. We know, Kathie, that you will do everything possible for Phantom, and we're all behind you in this.

Ludo van Doggy said...

Wow! I love how you can throw and catch the ball all by yourself, I can never do that, I has to get Mum to throw it for me.
~lickies, Ludo

Pamela, Kira and Scampi said...

Wooo Thunder, you were way too cute there, what happened to being a Sibe? I do not play with balls, but will play like that with my squirrel stuffie if no one is watching.
I hope Phantom gets better soon so you do not have to play by yourself.

Stella said...

Hey Thunder,

I am an only dog so I play like that all the time. My Mom's favorite is when I toss the ball up in the air and let it bounce! I'm glad you had a little fun and exercise and we are all waiting for Phantom to come out of his crate!


Princess Eva and Brice said...

You're doing a great job keeping yourself and your mom entertained. Soon Phantom will be feeling better and be able to play with you too.

Your pals,

Wow, Thunder! You've got talent! You should go on that show with Sharon Osbourne as the judge.

Your pal,

Good work entertaining yourself Thunder! At first we thought there was a big crowd watching you (TV) then realized you were playing alone.
You sure are a beautiful boy!

ps-About the pool---our mommy fills it up and all we do is drink from it---some waterdogs we are! She said the visiting birds get more use from it than we do. hehe.

Wow what a cool video! Thunder sure is good at playing with that ball!!!

Woodrow, Sweetie, MJ Campanella said...

you look like you are having alot of fun - and it is some very impressive technique you have to throw up the ball and catch it

we love tennis balls too but we believe everything is edible

Thunder I am glad you are finding ways to keep busy while Phantom gets better. You are amazing with that ball!

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Pug Posse said...

Our GusGus loves tennis balls too, but he's no where close to being as graceful as you! And he certainly can't toss it to himself and catch it :-D

Hi, Thunder!
I enjoyed a lot watching you playing with your ball!

Hero said...

Cool toys! I loved watching woo play with the ball. Thanks fur sharing!



Hi Phantom & Thunder's Mom,

Mommy likes my blue harness the best too. Mack's Mom & Dad and Anne Katherine are coming to the dog show on Satyrday so O'll wear it ten.

I wish your boys were here so I could practice my kissing on them.


Moco said...

That Thunder knows how to have a good time. Heling vibes to Phantom.

River said...

Wow, TD, you are great at bouncing, tossing and catching. Fun to watch!

love & wags,

Thor said...

You are so good with that ball, Thunder! Great job finding fun! That video is so cool! All the best for Phantom, wishing he is getting better and can play with you very soon.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

That is a great video! That is funny! Mom help me put up some silent videos of Monty playing with his tennis ball too... not knowing you did!

Mochi and Mommy said...

Now that looks like fun! I've never tried throwing the ball up and catching it myself. Mom usually has to help me.


Sitka, Tia, & Cornelia Marie said...

WOW! The toss and catch is pretty amazing!!!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Awww...Thunder, you look so sweet playing by yourself!! I love tennis balls too but I'm not so good at playing by myself - I'm always looking for a human to throw it for me!

Hey - by the way - your house is AMAZINGLY clean and beautiful! MY human was just oohing and aahing over it...she says Gosh, how does your human keep it so clean and white with dogs in the house? You must be squeaky clean dogs!! If I lived there, the place would be covered in slobber and dried mud!! :-)

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Great video! You remind me of myself when I'm playing with my cuz. I like to throw it and pounce on it and all sorts of fun stuff. Kat likes playing with balls too, but she is much more on a mission of playing fetch instead of just having a fun time.
