Who ever had the dumb idea of making a dog toy by connecting 2 tennis balls by about a foot of material, was really dumb.  Why, because somebodies wife will buy them for a Labrador who will sit quietly on the couch while you watch the weather on the 10 pm news.  Just when it gets to the part that will tell you if the rain will turn to sleet and snow over night, that same Lab will stand up with one of those tennis balls in his mouth and shake it hard. :
Of course the other tennis ball will have quit a bit of velocity when it hits you right in the..........................groin.
As you double over the Lab, realizing he has now hurt you will ask for forgiveness by placing a large pink tongue in your ear.  Me thinks a certain toy is going away and never coming back
I laughed out loud...
I hope you have recovered.
Dogs are dangerous. Never been hit with a toy, but when he jumps on the couch/bed, his paw always seems to find itself in the vicinity.
Oops, I mean "ouch!"
Hope you are ok now.

Makes for a good story though!
We had a similar toy, a ball on a rope. We used to say "Here comes ?????? with the wrecking ball".
