Our dog Rocco loves Soccer balls. He likes them a little flat and a little shredded. He enjoys chasing the ball when we kick it (if he actually lets us kick it), he enjoys throwing it around the yard by himself, too. Friends save old soccer balls for him, and he is very appreciative!

Does he ever let us play? Well, sometimes. He loves to tease us, act like he is going to let us kick it, but then grab it at the last minute.  But then there are days where he will let me kick it 100 times. It just depends.  One trick I use to get him to let me play is to give Chloe attention. He gets jealous and will bring me the ball.

Over the past few years, he has been through MANY balls.  A friend of mine asked me if I have pictures of him with all the various balls. Do I? Well, I have MANY pictures of him with various soccer balls. Here are some:
