You know I could delete that comment if I felt like it.

Maybe you should purchase something through the portal as a way of proving your comment is in good faith and not just frivolous attention-seeking, hmmm?

My son has one of those devices for playing with his black lab. One of the chief advantages is keeping the slimy tennis ball at arms's length. It will throw the ball several hundred feet and he tires out his lab that way. He's still a puppy. My basset hound would look at me like I was crazy and go back to sleep.

My dog loves his blue ChuckIt, yet I left it outside the other day, ball in, and when I next went to throw it BLASTOBLUEY!!!

It fell to the ground because the ball was frozen inside, then shattered into about 6 pieces because of the cold temp. here.

Luckily, I have two more that weren't left outside.

The chuckit is a GREAT dog toy. Need more than one tennis ball if your dog's "drop it" response is not what it ought to be.

There's something similar at Walgreens, where you throw a rubber doughnut instead of a tennis ball. The doughnut rolls really well, but you have to be sure you get it back from the dog before he chews a hole in it.

What is the sound of one doughnut not having a hole in it yet?

I had to look up both items on Amazon. I wonder how many other products could improve sales by advertising themselves as "no-slobber"? A lot, I'll bet.

Let's all go listen to a little bit of "Black dog in the river," by Kira Willey. Shall we. An' a-one, an' a-two: http://www.last.fm/music/Kira+Willey/_/Black+Dog+in+the+River

Tennis ball attachment for 1/4 mile potato launcher.

Product description:

The Tennis Ball Attachment is an barrel attachment built to exact specifications for launching tennis balls from the Quarter Mile Cannon Potato Gun. Perfect for a game of fetch with your dog or cat. Fits ALL Quarter Mile Cannon Models!

Cats! They're kidding.

Was $30.00 now only $18.00.

1/4 mile Potato launcher.

eh, that's not so far. That's what, a couple blocks, if it's true?

Product Description:

Don't underestimate the power of the City Slicker. This is actually the world's most popular potato gun. Why? Because it's easy to handle, easy to carry and easy to store. But it still packs a powerful punch. Due to the City Slicker's compact size, it has a very loud discharge and shoots an 18" flame out the end! If you use your tennis ball attachment in the city, you might never see your tennis ball again. The Quarter Mile Cannon City Slicker is perfect for the backyard.

Was $50.00 now only $30.00.

That would wear a dog right out, don't you think?

good if you have a healthy lab and a weak arm....

Think how far that think could throw a brownie for Segway Boy to fetch.

"Up to?"

Feed that doggie!

Love the chuckit, try it with lacrosse ball, same size and really fly and bounce. I recommend the Stewart Freeze Dried treats, we use the at the animal shelter as an irresible treat.

I have actually developed launcher elbow from using one of these everyday. I also go through 10 tennis balls a week. I have no idea where they go, they just disappear. Me and my five dogs play in the same field every day, but few of the balls ever return. They always bring them back until I start heading for home and then they bury them or something, or maybe they give them to doggie goodwill. I don't know. Lucky for me I live across the street from a tennis court with lousy players, so I always have a good supply of balls in the street. Tennis balls are considered one-use disposable items by bad tennis players, and my dogs.

1% of 7% is only 0.07%, or 7 cents for every $100 spent.

On the other hand, 1% of the 100% is about 14.3% of the 7%.

How does the Chuckit keep Meade from slobbering on the ball?

So, this seems to have been the first "Posted by Meade"? How about that, a solo blog no more. And, also, you're welcome. It's a lot easier to find kitchen gadgets at Amazon than driving all over town in the month of December...

Speaking of Amazon, those three-disc versions of the first and second ELP albums are still only $15. Includes the Original albums, new Stereo Mixes (with a few bonuses), and 5.1 Surround Sound Mixes for the Home Theater system. Unrepentant Proggers, take note.
