I can't tell you how happy the dogs are to have a soft tennis ball to chew on.
It helps burn up excess and nervous energy that they have sitting around in cages,
and for some adds a bit of happiness to a rather short and abusive life.

For the parents out there, please do this with your kids.
The best gift you can ever give your children is having them give to someone else.
Haven't thought of that. Maybe I will get my dead balls and bring them to an animal shelter some time soon.
