Mr. Higgins Gets A New Ball

The Duchess found this pretty soccer ball at a yard sale.  It needed a little more air in it so she knew it would be perfect for Higgins.

Of course the first thing he did was try to pick it up and shake it.

He figured out how to get a pretty good grip on it.

Now for the shake!

Game On!

Try to catch me!

I see you.....

I'm winning!

Thanks Duchess!  That was GREAT!

Yes, I think he likes his new ball.  
Maybe he will go away and play, 
and quit bugging me!  
Now I must leave you.  
I heard the word "bath" spoken this morning and 
I'm outta here!



  1. That sure is a nice looking ball Mister Higgins!!! You carry it well!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  2. Hello there Mr Higgins! You sure have fun with the ball. It would be great with you can play catch with Emma Rose too!

  3. That was very thoughtful of The Duchess! That soccer ball is totally YOU, Mr. Higgins! You look so happy with your new pressie - and... actually proud of it when you carry it! Love that!

  4. It's not going to be long for that ball to be toast! We can see lots of tooth marks already with more to come! We popped our basketball...sigh.

  5. Mr. Higgins sure looks proud of his new toy!

    I'd avoid the dreaded b-word at all costs, too!


  6. O,dear i hate the bath stuff to...grgrgrgrgrrr

  7. We had one too..popped is in the woods someplace..along with the basketball that Chance killed. Great photos..that ball really pops with color.. that is a dirty word to some dogs..hide and don't come out unless the treats are real good! Chance sends kisses! He is feeling much more like himself..but spits out the pills so he can get it wrapped in pieces of ham several times..:)

  8. mr. higgins, that is a grrreat ball!! the duchess sure was nice to get that for you. i'd come over and play chase the ball with you, but my mama says i live too far away. boohoo.
