Ha, we HAD 4 wiffle balls (assorted sizes). I liked them because they didn't "squeak" but the dogs still found them amusing. Now we have none. The smallest was chewed & smashed. The other 3 were broken in 1/2 during his "destructive" phase. I need to try the water bottle toys. I'm sure he would go nuts over that.

I worked a lot and I didn't realize just how nuts they made her. I took the lazor pointers away after she started jumping at every light reflection she saw. Now if she catches site of it she will get a little "jumpy" but I don't let her play with it anymore. Once she sees me with it I have to put it away. Imagion a 70lb German Shepard trying to climb your walls to get at a little reflection. Thankfully most off her "jumpiness" went away but she still remembers what the laser is and it must bring back memories. I have never seen my cats affected in a "bad way" by it. My two older boys don't really play anymore so occasionally pull it out just so I can watch them play like little kittens for a minute or two. When the lights gone they go back to there sleeping spot like it never happened.
I would say be very CAREFUL with dogs... its not a fun when they get obsessed with it. It can go from cute to annoying really quick. I never realized how many tiny reflections there were around the house until my Shepard got obsessed.

Very interesting about the laser pointer, thanks for letting us know! That is why we have this bored When I was a kid, I used to use it to play with my cat, and just had no idea (though, I looking back, I don't think it affected her at all). No laser pointer's for Brooky, thanks for clearing that up.
