Timmy Two Balls

The little dog is not complete without his balls.
For he always plays with not one ball, but two.
Bright yellow, practice golf balls but, he doesn’t care
what their colour is or what their real use is. All he cares
is that they are his to pick up, chase, chomp, chew on, and play.


Ever since he was a young puppy Timmy has never played with just one ball. He won’t chase just one, it has to be thrown and, he’ll wait with his eyes on the other one until it’s thrown before, he’ll go for them. These are like a sponge but not soft at all so that bits come off or I wouldn’t let him play with them. It’s very comical to see him run with two in his mouth and even more so if he tries to pick up and carry three, or, one large and one small one… LOL

As the dVerse prompt was ‘Imagism’ I was looking through all my pics, for objects to focus thought on for the prompt and saw several pics of Tim with his two balls and thought, ‘ah ha…hope his spherical objects fit in with Imagism.’ It also is for G-Man’s Friday Flash 55 prompt too. Just a bit of fun.

  1. A cute lil one he is 🙂 I liked reading the tale, well someone who needs the simple things in life to be, ahhh! 🙂

  2. The dog lover in me loves this one! I’d love to see what my guys would do with our golf balls. We’ve got plenty of them around, being on a course and both (would-be) golfers.

  3. Fun way to play with form, images and words, using your yorkshire’s passion for golf balls and yours for yellow. I laughed and thoroughly enjoyed the lighter side of your poetry attempt with imagery. Nice job!

  4. Love the joyful simplicity in this one. I can really imagine how much fun the dog and the owner have together during play. 🙂

  5. ha…of course my mind went elsewhere…i blame bob barker actually…lol…cute pups you got there…and some fun in your verse…

  6. He looks so cute and happy. The two-ball trick is an odd fetish. I love all the weird things our dogs do. A picture of him with a bigger bsll and a smaller one at the same time would be humorous:)Have you seen those small balls that look like tennis balls but they squeak? They drive my daughter’s dog insane. He attacks them till they stop squeaking, then he’s done.

  7. Aaaaaaaaaaa….
    Timmie Two Balls? He was on The Soprano’s!!!!!
    What a Handsome Boy you have.
    Loved your 55 DD2….:P
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  8. Oh I love seeing pics of other peoples pets. Timmy’s adorable and his quirk about the two balls is awesome, love hearing about pets and their nuances. Thanks for sharing, great job on the d’verse prompt as well. Thanks

  9. I enjoyed this joyful and humorous story about your little Yorkie, though I must admit, I wasn’t quite sure where it was going between the title and the first line!! Very cute and well done!

  10. Absolutely hilarious! I so love animals and their antics. He is so cute! We have a cat that drinks water by cupping his paw and dipping. 🙂

  11. What a sweet dog! Dogs do all have their idiosyncracies, don’t they? I know I would love Timmy.

      1. the ones i care for the male is 1, the female is 5. he’s nuts. she plays with the puppies, but there is only one left, and she is very patient with her puppies. she likes to be a lap dog. she is very serious and smart and it’s just weird how she’s so serious about herself.
