Is 28 Balls Too Many?

I found out this week that the pet store is discontinuing Sadie’s absolute favorite toy. Remember the squeaky basketball from my Squeaky Obsession posts? Sadie absolutely adores these squeaky balls, but only when they can squeak. Once she breaks the squeaker, the ball is dead to her and she goes looking for a new one. So to keep my pup happy, I wanted to have a stash of balls to give her a new one whenever she needs it.

After looking everywhere I could think of online and failing to find those specific balls anywhere, I decided to try the local store. The closest pet store did not have any and could only confirm that the item was discontinued and they wouldn’t be getting any more. So I drove to the next closet pet store, ten minutes away. After searching the entire store, I noticed a clearance bin by the register. Success! I found one package of Sadie’s favorite squeaky balls left. I immediately bought them and left the store. I was extremely happy to find them, but I knew Sadie would go through them pretty quickly. If I left it up to her, Sadie would probably destroy all four of the balls in that pack in one day. So thinking about my baby’s happiness and being an indulgent dog mom, I decided to drive to the third and final pet store, a half hour away. I looked through the whole store and began to worry I had made the trip for no reason. Then I got to the clearance bin by the cash register. The cashier asked if I needed help and I told her I was just contemplating how to tackle the bin to get to the package of balls I could see below four feet of other clearance merchandise. Since no one else was in the store, two employees came over to dig with me. We ended up finding six packages of Sadie’s precious squeaky balls. They all thought it was adorable that I wanted to buy every one I could find for my one little dog.

Pleased with my efforts, I went home in possession of a whopping 28 new squeaky balls. I just have to make sure I ration them carefully, but this stash should keep Sadie happy for quite some time.

Thanks for liking us! Sadie and I really appreciate the love!



  1. LOL. Some humans might think that 28 is too many but I know Sadie appreciates it; she probably thinks its never enough 🙂 I think it’s so cute that you did that for her. I love that you did that; I’d be quite upset if we found out Laika’s favorite toy was being discontinued and I’d probably do the same thing if I knew about it beforehand.

  2. Heck no, 28 balls isn’t too much!! Have you tried Googling to see if someone might have some online? When they discontinue something you or your dog really loves, you have to buy as many as you can find! 🙂

    Thanks for joining the blog hop!!

  3. Whew! I am so glad that you found those. Bentley LOVES the small squeaky balls too. We had the exact same experience and I also emptied an entire basket filled with discontinued toys to get to his prized basketballs at the bottom. (I’m relieved to know it’s not just me) I did notice that Kroger now has the squeaky basketball & soccer balls. You might want to check at your local store after those 28 balls are killed. ☺
