Tennis Anyone?

Hello everyone. This is The Daily Bone and I’m your sporty doggie commentator Chester L. W. Stephens.


As you can see, I have a tennis ball. In fact I own several tennis balls, but unfortunately I can only carry one at a time. The humans play a special game using tennis balls and something called a racket, and they play on a special area called a court. They use the racket things to hit the ball back and forth across a net, but nobody ever catches the ball and runs away with it. That seems kind of futile to me, so I’ve made up my own rules for playing tennis. Here they are:

Most importantly, the tennis ball is always mine. I enjoy running after the tennis ball if you throw it, but only one or two times. After that I will take my tennis ball and walk away with it.


I usually hide my tennis ball under the furniture until I think it’s time to get it out. The humans must stop whatever they’re doing and move the furniture so I can get my tennis ball out from underneath. I will continue to bark at it until they do so. Last and most important, the tennis ball is always mine! Any questions?

  1. Crikey Chester and Joey ...... first off I gotta say a big THANKS for the birthday wishes. That was so nice of you. I love you blokes too. You are the best!! I DID get some icecream but none of those rib things you mentioned. I had a good day and couldn't complain about no party cause our Nan (Mum's Mum and 96) wasn't too good and we had to go visit.
    I reckon your idea of tennis is much more sensible than the rules the peeps play by. My Mum and Dad play that tennis game. They met on a tennis court so I guess I gotta be grateful for the game of tennis, aye??

    1. Yeah. But the tennis ball is still mine! We're glad the day turned out all right for you after all, Charlie.

      We hope Nan will be OK. The nursing home where Mom works has a few people who are over 100 years old! Can you believe it??? She says that when she became a nurse in 1981, hardly anybody lived past 75 or 80. The oldest person she ever took care of was 104.

      Oh and don't forget, the tennis ball is always mine!

    1. There is a lady in grammy's nursing home that just turned 108! Mentally, she is as sharp as a tack, just having a few mobility issues. She has a pawsome sense of humor!

  8. Momma won't get me tennis balls anymore because I insist on skinning them and then I ignore them!

    Doggie tennis does sound like fun, though!
