|Xena trashes yet another ball. Nikon D7000|
Xena does like chasing tennis balls, but not quite as much as she likes to trash them. Often she starts by removing their fur, before dismantling the rubber parts into chunks just a fraction larger than the hole in vacuum cleaner where the pipe meets the collection bucket; leading to frequent dismantling to remove blockages.
Today she was being nice and dismantled the tennis ball in the garden instead; it does not matter how big the chunks are that she leaves, they should not block the mower.
