There’s nothing like seeing your most cherished friend happy:
I swear I’m not paid by the Jolly Ball people, but I happily shill for them anyway because this toy lights Gilly up with joy. Originally made for horses (“equine enrichment”!), they now come in many sizes, and there’s a whole line of dog products. A few years back someone from Jolly Pets/Horseman’s Pride emailed us and asked to use some of Gilly’s pictures and videos in their trade shows, since he demonstrates the ball with such delight: we were glad to agree. Yeah, he’s a supermodel.
His first one (blue) lasted from when he was two or three until he was six, the second (red) held up until he was well into this his ninth year – it’s thoroughly perforated now, though, and it was time.
We went for the full horse-sized neon green model.
It was beloved in seconds.
