The Best Dog Toy Ever
It’s so good, that even Roomba wants to play with it
“I had a package delivered to you.” My mom said through the phone. “It’s on your porch right now.”
“Hold on,” I held the phone to my chest and pointed to my teenager. “Can you see if there’s a package on the porch?”
She returned and opened it. A green and blue hard plastic ball with holes lay inside.
I moved the phone back to my ear. “What is it?” I touched it. It was hard as a rock.
I could hear the bounce of excitement in my mom’s voice. “It’s a dog toy!” She sounded like a kid on Christmas. I pictured her bouncing up and down on the couch in excitement.
“Oh! Thanks.” My daughter put it on the ground and rolled it toward Lia, the cat-dog.
You can read more fun stories about the cat-dog on my pet stories list. Here’s one of my more popular ones.
The Cat-Dog is a Cat Burglar
I ripped off two chunks of French bread to eat with a bit of cheese. Then all hell broke loose.
Loud obnoxious yet exciting, animalistic robot sounds came out of it. It didn't roll straight either. It wobbled and wheeled in erratic patterns. You can listen to it and watch it in action here.
Lia went berserk.
She tried catching it, kicking it, eating it, and picking it up. Everything evaded her. She ran up and down the hall, into walls, around corners, and she still couldn’t pick it up.
