Love Affair

You all know about my love affair with Zanie Flyers. It is my favorite toy for playing fetch with my greyhounds. Travis and Katie had won oodles of them and I took for granted that there would be an endless supply. Much to my dismay, they have been discontinued.

Over the years, I had lost several to tossing them behind the wall at the training building. I would throw them too high and too far and they would drop out of sight behind the ribbed wall never to be seen again.......until a week ago. Some friends were installing new lights inside of the building and had casually rescued two Zanie Flyers when spied from a ladder. Sensing my everlasting appreciation for two Zanie Flyers one of the guys offered to rescue all of the Zanie Flyers. "There is more?" I question with wide eyes. In all, he pulled TEN Zanie Flyers from behind the wall. I feel that I may finally have enough to last a lifetime.

WOW!!! That is a lot of toys that were behind there!! Maybe by the time these 10 are ready for retirement there will be something just as good to replace them!

It's the small things, right?

It's like you found buried treasure! It's always nice to find a little surprise. You might want to aim a little lower in there from now on, though!

Did you see in the Pet Edge catalogue that there are NEW Zanies Flyers, only with the Gold's Gym logo on them? I bought several. I figure the logo is a small price to pay for having Kaylee's favorite frisbees back in our lives.

YES, I just checked Pet Edge and they do indeed have Zanie Flyers again. Not sure what is up with the Gold's logo, but whatever! I probably have 40 Zanie Flyers now and yes I am being very careful with them now :-).
