As told by daughter, Stacey Salinas
A few yrs ago after bringing the kids to my mom and dad’s house. My dad called to ask what had happened to the dogs tennis balls. Maybe the kids threw them over the wall. I asked the kids and they said no. So Sarah and I went to the dollar store and bought A lot of tennis balls. Around 9pm on a Saturday night we all got into our cars including the grandkids and we go out and quietly threw them over the backyard wall. The next day my mom called, she thought it was funny. Later on my dad said he couldn’t figure out what the dogs were going nuts for and sure enough a bunch of tennis balls in the backyard the next morning.
