I have the 8 inch Jolly ball with the molded handle and Indi likes to carry it around. If she is playing fetch she wants to use her Cuz balls, but for just carrying and keeping herself entertained the Jolly ball is one of her real go to choices. She prefers the cuz because she can get it into her jaws and doesn't have issues with dropping it. The Jolly is just a tad too big and hits her front legs if she is trying to run and she doesn't really care for that. She also loves a flying disc, but I tend to avoid it to prevent her from jumping and injuring herself. Love my girl too much to play games that will get her hurt.... I guess that makes me an old softy when it comes to taking care of my pack family members...

Funny that you posted this. My friend and I were out on the boat two weeks ago and found a 8 or so inch jolly ball floating in a debris collection that we were picking clean of any garbage.
We had no idea what it was and thought it might be a marker for slalom skiers. It was in pretty good shape but had one nick in it from a prop of another boat so it did have some water in it. Even then, it would not sink and floated ashore.
His hound goes ape stink over it. He will do anything for it! No problems with the teeth so far but he has managed to pepper it with holes from his powerful bite.
That's one heck of a way to find a cool toy! I will be getting one for my dog in the future. I guess the arena folk use them with their horses for play too!

|arycrest||My late Mac LOVED his Jolly-Balls and he died with hardly any fangs left. Slider also has had his fangs worn down playing with them. Bruiser and Faith don't seem that interested, they like smaller balls better.|

I had given my dog a jolly ball, when he was about a year old, which he loved. However, I noticed that his canine teeth were no longer sharp. The top ones are worse than the bottoms and are really rounded off now. It didn't take us long to realize that it was from the jolly ball.
Needless to say we have taken the ball away and have no intention on letting him play with it again. I would strongly encourage everyone to monitor your dog's teeth if you're letting him play with a jolly ball.

Carly loves her jolly ball. It has a zillion little punctures from her teeth because she likes to squeeze it. The handle is chewed up just a little bit. She seriously loves that thing!
Here she is when she was younger, with a brand new jolly ball:

|wyominggrandma||Holly has two of them, a red and a blue. As soon as someone walks outside, she grabs one of them and starts carrying it around. Has never chewed the handles off, but after awhile, she does manage to smash them down into "half" jolly balls, Still carries them around by the handle flat or round.|
