Anyone for tennis?

Mummy has been pretending to watch the tennis, but really she’s only interested the Pimms and strawberries. That is until Andy Murray plays and suddenly she’s the biggest tennis fan in the world. Humans!

I’m not a fan of tennis, I prefer a ball on a string that I can bash myself round the head with it. Do you think that counts? Daddy says I wouldn’t be any good as a ball girl. But I think that would make tennis waaay more fun!


I’ve had an idea though and am going to hold a competition. To enter, you just need to send me a pic of you showing off your ball skills. It doesn’t have to be a tennis ball, could be a football, pingpong ball or if you’re a kitty, a ball of string (or cheese – yum)!
Or perhaps you’re like mummy and prefer a bowl ball of strawberries 😉

Either way, email me at with your pic by Wednesday. It can be real or photo-edited. Don’t forget to include your name and the name of your blog in your email.
Anyone can enter no matter what type of anipal you are or where you live. Voting will begin on Thursday and the winner announced Friday pm.

The winner will receive one of Mollie’s mummy’s personalised ornaments, like this one:


Looking forward to seeing your entries!

    You are funny! I have never understood that tennis ball obsession but lots of dogs have it. To me a game of chase is much more fun!

    That looks like a super fun ball game you’ve got there Misaki! I think you could make it into the Doggy Olympics with your ball skills. 😉

  14. Thank you for having this contest, cause I will get to play ball to get a picture. Phod (and Lee who won’t play ball cause she is lame).

  15. Sounds like fun! I’ll have to see what I can find… I’m not big on ball-playing!

  28. Jessica says:

    Misaki, this is such a creative competition idea! Taylor is definitely entering because (at the risk of sounding like such a stage mom) she has some mad catch and fetch skills with her toy baseball!
