New Toys and a Training Bra

Over the holidays Kol’s Notes and many other fantastic blogs hosted an Advent Calendar with 24 days of giveaways. We entered these fun giveaways and were lucky enough to walk away with a prize!

We won two Unbreakoballs and they just arrived about two hours ago. One regular sized and one large sized. Like REALLY large. It’s awesome.

I entered to win this particular prize with my sister’s dog Penny in mind. She’s a ball fanatic and incredibly destructive.

Here she is, super excited about her prize (or the treats in my pocket, who knows ;))


She’s actually a little leery of the larger ball, but by the end of our playtime outside she was warming up to it. She loves the smaller ball and is still trying to figure out how to pick it up.


These balls are thick, sturdy, and a bit heavy. I think they’re definitely going to be impossible for Penny to destroy! Which is great, because she only had two toys of her very own before, now she’s got four. 😉


The balls are also made in the USA! How great is that?

Here are both of the girls posing with them, because Petal wants to be included, even though she couldn’t care less about these giant orange balls.


Thank you to Unbreakoball and the hosts of the Advent Calendar! Penny is very happy to have some more toys to play with and we’re all happy she can’t chew them apart and then swallow them. 😉

Now for a little Throwback. I had a whole other post ready for this, but… it took a really sad turn. I’m saving it for another day. Maybe.

Instead I’ll do a silly throwback.

Throwback to Petal’s first training bra!

  1. When I saw the pingback about a training bra I thought you were some crazy Russian spammer….lol. I thought training bra…dog blog…what? But those pictures of Petal are just adorable.

    The balls look great too. Congrats on your winning. Balls are Thunder’s favorite toy. No doubt he would try to steal them from Penny…lol. He gets so wild with them that I have to put them up.

    I really appreciate you joining the first Barks and Bytes hop. :)

    • ROFL! I did not even consider how weird the pingback would look! Hope I didn’t freak you out, but truth be told… I AM a crazy Russian spammer.
      Just kidding.

      Oh Thunder! Haha. That is pretty wild!

      No problem. It’s a fun hop. 😀

  2. When I saw Training Bra I thought “what the” but then laughed out loud at how cute Petal was in her first training bra. Even at a young age!! The balls look right up Penny’s ally too. Great that she got them.

    • Hahahaha. 😉 Ever since this moment, since we put a training bra on her, she has had a thing for chewing bra straps in half. I have no idea why. Hehe. ;P

    • ;P
      I bet she probably would! Though the giant one is bigger than my head! But I bet she’d have a blast rolling either one of them around and chasing it.

    • Hehe, thanks! 😉 You destroyed a soccer ball once? My Lassie popped one once too! I bet you would love these balls, Dolly. VERY durable! They’re fun to roll and chase.

  3. Oh thanks so much for joining the first Barks and Bytes blog hop! I also have to say I’m super excited you won the Unbreakable ball because that giveaway was hosted on my blog and it makes me excited to see my readers win awesome prizes.

    I love the fact that it is USA made as well. I think it also comes with some kind of guarantee too, but don’t quote me on that.

    BTW Petal looks adorable in that bra, I hope the post you had planned wasn’t too, too sad. :-(
