This was actually an abandoned ball that William found by the lake while walking with my father…and my Dad actually let him bring the nasty thing home. William was very attached to it, unfortunately. You see here that it shared status with Blue Puppy and, as such, briefly became a nap companion.
As soon as he was awake, though, we “disappeared” it. Dan thought it smelled like celery and, folks, that can’t be good.
