Oh my! I need one of these. (The toy not the dog....)

About This Video

I built the ball machine because I thought my dog Jerry, might like it and that it would be something fun for me to build. So after two years of on and off work, with many safety features such as IR proximity sensors to protect Jerry and my son from the machine, I finally complete.

Far from being a replacement for me, I was always right there with him enjoying his fun. And with all the troubles that I went through to build the ball machine, I still end up throwing more balls than that the machine could count! According to the computer, he played with the machine by himself only 3 times in his life.

I recently put this video on YouTube to keep alive my earlier memories of him and (hopefully) provide some "humorous distractions" for anyone that might drop by.


  1. OH MAN! That is one cute little happy Doxie. I love him....and the machine is pretty cool too.

  2. haha yeah I saw this video earlier this week and I LOVED it, I really want to get one for Rob's dog Bandit because he loves to play and will play and play until your arm falls off.
