The Paw-fect Tennis Ball!

Have you noticed your fur babies tennis toys fall apart quickly? It was driving me crazy so I figured out a way to create more toys without breaking the bark.

Find all your old tennis balls and let’s get crafting! Find a few old shirts and cut them into very thick strips. Cut between 9-12 thick strips about 3 inches wide, then drill a hole on the top and bottom of the tennis ball or you can just use scissors if that’s easier. Braid your strips tightly, then slide your tennis ball over the fabric. This is IMPORTANT: make sure your hole is smaller than your knot so the ball will stay on. Tie a knot on either end so the fabric doesn’t slip out and viola, your pup has a new tug toy.

In one short week, one big pup is making his movie debut in theatres and streaming on #ParamountPlus!


When middle-schooler Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) meets a magical animal rescuer (John Cleese) who gifts her a little red puppy, she never anticipates waking up to find a giant ten-foot hound in her small New York City apartment. While her single mom Maggie (Sienna Guillory) is away for business, Emily Elizabeth and her fun but impulsive uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) set out on an adventure that will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat as our heroes take a bite out of the Big Apple. Based on the beloved Scholastic book character created by author Norman Bridwell, CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG will teach the world how to love big!

CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG features an all-star cast led by Darby Camp as Emily Elizabeth. The ensemble also includes Jack Whitehall, Academy Award®- nominee John Cleese, Sienna Guillory, Tony Hale, Izaac Wang, Horatio Sanz, Paul Rodriguez, Keith Ewell, Bear Allen Blaine, Tovah Feldshuh, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Alex Moffat and Russell Wong. Walt Becker (Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip, Old Dogs, Wild Hogs) directs from a script by Jay Scherick, David Ronn and Blaise Hemingway. Jordan Kerner and Iole Lucchese are producers.

CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG opens in theaters and on Paramount+ November 10.
