A Special Request

Last night was pretty good.  Not too loud or long across the street. And the windows were closed and the air coolie thing on, and that helped.  Most of the pretty firework displays were too far away to hear but still pretty for mom to look at. Hope your 4th (for the Americans, anyway) was safe and reasonably quiet.
I am linking to Alfie's  blog today, as he has a special request. Now he is one of our friends across the water (England), but this might work for our shelters and rescue places, too. The Battersea place is looking for used tennis balls for the woofies to play with to keep them entertained while they wait for their forever homes. If you are across the water (in England) you might be better equipped to help.
But, hey, even I liked tennis balls when I was younger! Nice to bunny kick, you know. If you are in some other place (like Australia or Canada or even America) you might check with your own shelters to see if this would be something that they could use.
Bounce this around in your heads! Thanks! I thought this was a lovely idea!!
love,
brandi

That's a great request. I'd be happy to help, but I think shipping them over the pond would cost more than the balls!

What a great idea, Miss Brandi! You are so thoughtful to look out for the woofies.

Yes, tennis balls are so neat. Great idea for Alfie to ask for them for the shelter.

Great idea for old tennis balls. How sweet of you to post this. What else can they do with old tennis balls? There are lots of things our local shelters can reuse, such as towels. Glad you had a semi-quiet holiday! XOXO

What a terrific idea, Brandi (and Alfie!). I know the woofies at our shelter love tennis balls. :)
