I Have A Problem & Need Advice

I know I'm not supposed to have my tennis ball in the garage, but I get so excited when Mom comes outside because that usually means that she's going to throw my ball for me. Yesterday at lunch Mom went out to the garage to talk to Dad and I kept dropping my ball a Mom's feet to get her to throw it. Dad doesn't want me doing that in the garage because he doesn't want my ball to get into something and then I put it in my mouth. I understand that, but Mom wasn't paying attention to me! Then it happened. My ball rolled under the tool box! It's too far back for me to reach. Dad says it's going to stay there to remind me not to bring the ball in the garage. Mom says she's not getting down on the garage floor to get it and she's definately not sticking her hand under the toolbox (she's EXTREMELY afraid of mice - I think that's why I have a cat brother). So I need to figure out how to get my ball out. Any ideas? It's snowing outside so even if I had it, I can't play with it. Right now I know where my ball is, if it had been outside last night I wouldn't know where it is. If any of you have ideas on how to get my ball, I would appreciate it VERY much.
Mom keeps coughing and sneezing and sniffing. It's really gross and annoying, especially at night. She can't take any cold medicine because it will react with her other medication and she definatley doesn't want that again. She says it's allergies because the pollen count is so high right now. It's snowing, the flowers are covered with snow. I think Mom is just trying to get out of going to the people vet again.
It's kind of cold in this room so I'm going to go curl up in Mom's blanket on the couch for a nap.
Have a good weekend everybody!

Hmmm... that's a tough problem. I would suggest sitting at the door to the garage and howling really, REALLY loudly. That's what I do. And don't stop. No matter what they try to bribe you with. Eventually they'll get so annoyed that they'll get your ball, just to stop the noise. It works for me!

I have no ideas. I hope you get it back though.


I agree with tadpole- just howl and bark and what ever happens DON'T GIVE UP!! Let us know what happens.

Maybe your cat brother could shimmy under and paw it out for you??

Sorry about the snow - bad weather is headed here too - we are very sad about the weather forecast. We hope you mom is feeling better soon!!

Take Care - Dory - your kinda sorta long last twin :)!!

Oh Kaos, i'm sorry to hear about your tennis ball. Maybe your hoomans can get you a new one. I bet tat one that rolled away from you prob is too dirty to be chewed. You wouldn't want to risk getting a tum tum ache would ya?
