As Ireland play France today in the Euro soccer championships, today’s theme is all about ball games.
There’s a video from Ireland AM this week, where I used my veterinary skills (and tools) in an attempt to do better at a game called “soccer cyclone”.
And there’s a podcast from East Coast FM, where I discuss the various types of ball games that can be played with pets.
My own dog, Finzi, is an avid ball chaser – and my cats enjoy chasing pingpong balls around the kitchen floor.
From cats to dogs to humans, the appeal of the ball as a toy is universal.
By the way, good luck to Ireland today in the football game against France!
