Jerry needs no help playing with his ball. Homemade catapult machine built just for Jerry.

According to the description in the 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.

Please enjoy the video.

Personal note:  I know some people sniffle at this creation, “You should spend more time with your dog throwing the ball yourself…” etc.  Well, let’s face it and be real.  Life keeps us busy, joints and muscles get old and tired, and so on.  I would love to spend all my time playing with my dogs, but just cannot.  I think this is great!  If you notice, this dachshund has quite a bit of gray… excellent way to help keep an older dog active.
