Rocky Kanaka (Animal Advocate):

My dog, Flip, loves tennis balls. I mean, loves them. <laugh>. This is his current tennis ball. It’s a little worn out. This guy right here, Kobe, he’s a puppy we’re fostering and he also likes tennis balls. He’s blind. He can’t see ’em, so we gotta help him a little bit. You happy boy? You got your tennis ball, huh? You happy boy?

Zoe also loves tennis balls. In fact, we get her little ones because she’s a smaller dog. Recently, my dog flip got diagnosed with cancer. He had a tumor and he had to have surgery. Oh, it was so tough. It broke my heart. And the healing process took a while, but I have really great news. He is cancer free. So I thought we’d celebrate and I thought this tennis ball is seen its days. Look at that thing. <laugh>. He has used that tennis ball a lot.

And so I went online. I was searching for tennis balls, and then a giant tennis ball popped up and I thought, you know what? That’s when I’m gonna get ’em. In fact, I’m gonna get a hundred of ’em. <laugh>, they’re here. And so I had an idea, what if we surprised him with 100 giant tennis balls when he ran out the door? What do you think, Kobe? That’s a pretty good idea, huh?

He’s inside right now. He doesn’t know we’re doing this. We’re gonna blow up a hundred tennis balls. I’ve got an idea of something I want to build. So it makes a giant wall of tennis balls. So when he runs out that door, all of a sudden it’s all these tennis balls. Uh, Zoe, she’ll likely just be scared. Actually, try this with her one time and tt did not go as planned.

“Oh, come here, come here. Come here. Sorry! Did it scare you?! Come here… Oh no!”

I thought, I thought she’d really like it. I didn’t think through it though. It just terrified her. So she probably won’t engage. And Kobe, well, he’s blind, so obviously he won’t be able to see the giant wall of tennis balls, but he’ll just be excited because Flip is excited and we’re excited. I can’t wait to see his reaction. Let’s get started. Are you gonna help me blow these things up? Um, yes. <laugh>,

Kelly Kanaka:

It sounds like a lot of work!

Rocky Kanaka:

This is Flip’s intake picture at the shelter. The breeder dropped him off; something was wrong with this dog. They couldn’t sell him. Well, the thing that was wrong with him is the poor little dude was sick. I mean, really sick! When I got him. He could barely hold his head up. He kept sticking his tongue out at him.

Flip as a puppy

First, I thought was cute; I couldn’t figure it out. But really it’s because he struggled breathing. See, he had distemper. Most dogs don’t survive from that. They couldn’t even hold up his little body. It’s like he didn’t even fit into his little body. It was so sad seeing such a sweet dog struggle so bad. And his condition even got worse so bad that he had to be on life support and the vet said he wouldn’t make it, but I wouldn’t give up.

I told the vet, under no circumstances will I give up. We will fight for this guy. Because there was just something telling me that we were meant to be together. We were meant to be best friends. You know what? He pulled through? And this is my buddy. This is my best friend.

Rocky Kanaka:

Recently the doctor said, you gotta cut down your activity. The baby’s gonna be here any day now. So I will get you one of those chairs, okay? And we’ll bring all the tennis balls out to the yard, and then you can just help me with blowing up the tennis balls. But you can, you can take it easy.

Kelly Kanaka:

Can I I get a snack too?

Rocky Kanaka:

<laugh>? You want me grab you snack? What do you want? Like a Popsicle or something like that? I

Kelly Kanaka:

I Don’t know. That’s okay. Okay. <laugh> Flip. He’s peeking through the blind.

Rocky Kanaka:

Flip! Yeah, we’ll have to, I’ll have to put him in the bedroom or something. Because look! He’s cheating!

Kelly Kanaka:

Cheater! He knows we’re up to something.

Rocky Kanaka:

Yeah! Okay. I’m gonna get y’all set up here in this chair. There you go. Okay. All right. Sit down. Try that out. Feel like you could blow up a hundred giant tennis balls?

Kelly Kanaka:

Well, you’re blowing ’em up too. So, 25? <laugh>.

Rocky Kanaka:

Interestingly enough, they’re actually come flat like, uh, deflated. I did send them a message when I bought these and I said, Hey, I’m buying 100 tennis balls for my dog. And they didn’t even respond. They just sent them. They’re probably like, yeah, whatever, Bud!

Rocky Kanaka:

<laugh>. Here’s some more.

Kelly Kanaka:

I’ll do that, boss. You can do the rest.

Rocky Kanaka:

<laugh>. This might take a while.

Kelly:

This is what you got for all these balls?!

Rocky:

Well, how Else are you gonna do it?

Kelly:

Maybe an electric one?! <laugh>

Rocky:

You know what’s fairest though?! According to the doctor, you should probably not be doing that. So I did plan ahead, one second…

Kelly:

Oh, good.

Rocky:

Yeah, perfect. Oh, wait. Uh, per your request.

Kelly:

Perfect. Now we’re talking <laugh>.

Rocky:

This is the life. Okay, step one: we get all of the wrappers off these tennis balls.

Kelly:

We don’t wanna just do it as we go.

Rocky:

Well, we have to because we only have one needle. I’ll start, uh, pulling all those outta the packaging and you start blowing ’em up. Does that sound like a, a plan?

Kelly:

We can’t use this and the pump at the same time?

Rocky:

No. No. I didn’t think through that.

Yes… yes! Oh, this is gonna be awesome.

This is going good. It’s gonna take a while, but you know what? If you love dogs, you do what it takes. Oh, by the way, if you love dogs and you haven’t subscribed yet to this channel, what are you waiting on? Get that subscribe button. Turn on notifications.

I’m like a sweating horse right now, <laugh>, because one, it’s 90 something degrees… I live in Los Angeles and two, oh man, I’m gonna be sore tomorrow.

Kelly:

Me too.

Rocky:

99 <laugh>

Kelly:

Almost done. Took you long enough.

Rocky:

This is a workout. Look, I am like sweating so bad. It’s worth it. I got one left and I am exhausted. <laugh>. And if you liked seeing me, blow up 100 tennis balls, hit that like button, because if you guys get us to a hundred thousand likes on this, I’ll do another video where we do 1000 giant tennis balls.

Kelly:

All right, finish that last one.

Rocky:

All right, you ready? 100… Here we go. Yeah. Number 100 easy. 100 <laugh>. Yeah. Woo

I was gonna try to build a wall or something, but I think we build a big pile. Throw a blanket over it so you know what it is. And then when he comes out, boom, we pull the blanket off. I could put some boards like back behind him so that because stack them maybe. Yeah. The goal is he’ll run out the door, I’ll throw a tennis ball, and then boom, he’ll see all his giant tennis balls.

Sometimes you just gotta build some stuff for your boy, you know?

Kelly:

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>.

Rocky:

Don’t try that at home. I’m making kind of a square. I’m kind of fan it out if we need to, but then yeah, we’ll just get ’em all in here. Ooh. It’s kind of satisfying how they all line up like that, huh?

Kelly:

Yeah. How many is that?

Rocky:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Okay. Five. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Kelly:

25?

Yeah.

Rocky:

Well, yeah, if you know math it is.

Kelly:

Okay. All right. Let’s start stacking ’em high.

Rocky:

Okay? Yeah. Now what do you think? Like make like a pyramid? Yeah.

Kelly:

Just move a little faster maybe?

Rocky:

Okay. Yeah, no problem.

Kelly:

<laugh>, are your arms sore?

Rocky:

<laugh>? They will be tomorrow.

All Right. Last one. But we have an extra… and all of these

Kelly:

<laugh>. I guess we could have done the math. Yeah.

Rocky:

Yeah. Math would’ve been a good idea. So I, I think we just pull it out and do another layer.

Kelly:

Yeah. Or we can bring it out this way.

Rocky:

Let’s do both. Let’s not do the math. Let’s just hope it works.

Okay. <laugh>.

Kelly:

What do you think?

Rocky:

This is awesome.

Kelly:

They’re gonna add up. <laugh>. I know we still have quite a few more balls.

Rocky:

Okay, we’re almost done with this pyramid and then Flip gets this big surprise, but I have an idea what we’re gonna do with these balls after. I’m gonna give them out to you guys.

Rocky:

Kelly:

Rocky:

I’ll get ’em all excited thinking they’re gonna play fetch with this thing. I’ll throw it out the door. I’ll open the door, throw it out there, and then when I do that, you know, to take the cover off there and then just let ’em go for it.
