Earth Day for the Dogs

Yes, I’m a day early, but who knows what tomorrow will bring?  Nichole asked my girls to field test Planet Dog’s Orbee Tuff Adopt Ball.  You can follow the link to Nichole’s review of the whole package Planet Dog sent her, but here are my girls at play with the ball. 

As Nic noted, Gretchen plays with the ball the most, which is ironic, given its size.  However, she really is an Orbee kind of girl.  She has a small Orbee Original Tuff Ball, an Orbee Tuff Bone, and then each girl has her own MintJust last night she gave the Adopt ball a romp around the living room, while she sprinted in a cricle, over and over, in a rain protest dance.

We’re big Planet Dog fans.  The whole Orbee line is eco-friendly, and then there’s the made in the USA element, not to mention the Planet Dog Foundation which has a great mission…

The mission of the Planet Dog Foundation is to promote and celebrate programs in which dogs serve and support their best friends.

Getting back to Earth Day, as a terrier devotee, I think it’s only appropriate that Earthdogs have a company they can turn to for toys and more that is just as into earth as they are.  Sissy wants woods and meadows to run through in for generations to come, and Gretchen hopes that there will always be dirt to dig in and squirrels to chase for all her terrier kin, and any other dogs up for it.   (Note:  our current fur-kids aren’t AKC registered, and we don’t encourage Gretchen’s dirt diving, but I do realize it is a part of her heritage!)

Any Earth Day plans of your own?

    Cute. What’s with the early morning blogging? I read in a book about diggers to give them their own digging spot. Losen the dirt and bury cookies so they find treasures for digging where you want them to.

    The girls look fabulous as always. g

  2. Hmm..I wonder if my Ball-Hog (Sasha) would like one of those…I’ve never run across that brand out here in the West.

    I’m not sure Sky would ever give up his glow balls. Then we wouldn’t be able to play ball in the middle of the night when the dogs can’t sleep.

    We’re doing an Earth Day post, too.

    Sounds like a great company! I haven’t heard of it before but I really like what they stand for. Love the picture with Gretchen and the ball 🙂

    “Dirt diving”… I like it! Sadly, I have dirt divers, too, but I just tell myself that they are aerating the lawn. Never mind that there is no grass left… Oh, well. Happy Earth Day!

    Love the pictures! I think Frankie and Abby would like some of those balls. They seem to be the only two who need more toys in my house. 🙂

    Our Earth Day plan is to leave the lights off. 🙂

    I like the field test photo. Gretchen seems to be very similar to Mugsy in the ball-love respect. Is it a terrier thing?

    Oh love that ball!
    Happy Earth day!
    Sorry we have been absent lately.
    We miss you guys.

    I didn’t bother to register Thor either. He’s neither being bred nor shown, so I just didn’t see the need. The girls love you, and so who cares if they’re registered? It’s nice of them to test that ball for Nichole!
