Zinnia is my walking partner 5 days a week. One of the ways i reward her for being ok with my slower pace,(Zinnia would be so happy to run everywhere) is to throw a ball for her in the park by my house. However, i am a terrible "thrower" Pitiful really...Until now. My daughter suggested i try a "Chuck It". This thing is amazing! Just with a flick of my wrist, i can throw the ball at least three times farther than i can without help. AND the added bonus is, i can pick up the slimy ball without having to touch it! Brilliant! Needless to say, Zinnie's thrilled with our new toy!
