Rockwell & His Purple Ball
Rockwell loves to pick up his purple ball ever since we ran it over and dented in the side....
We always warn guests that this is not a "kick" ball but a very hard sided ball, because several people have ran up to it, expecting it to be a soft sided ball, and it is not!
The marks on the side are teeth marks, from when the ball was completely round. Rockwell would try to pick it up using the "belly button" of the ball in the middle (shown below). He would hook one tooth in the ball's belly button and then try to wrap his jaw around the ball to pick it up. Sometimes he was successful, but it took many tries.
