|Lonesome tennis ball. Nikon D7000|
As Xena has been on her holidays too, her tennis balls in the garden have been quite lonely.
I am not sure quite why the dogs we have seem to think that tennis balls look better when shredded, but Fitz used to like to make a split in the ball, and then sit and make a 'clopping' noise with it as he squeezed it repeatedly in his mouth.
Then he would just rip it to shreds like all the others.
Xena likes to split them and then wait until the carpet has just been vacuumed. Then she will rip it to shreds and distribute the bits across the floor.
