A box full of old tennis balls

Kayley went with Ozzya 7 month old English Springer, at Ely Country Park. That’s when they noticed an interesting cardboard box. They approached, and Ozzy immediately stuck his head in and came out with a bullet in his mouth. The box was full of old tennis balls.

A message full of love

On the front of the cardboard was written a message with a black marker. It could read “I’m too old to play with my favorite tennis balls now. But it would make me very happy to know that younger dogs would have fun with them. With love. Cocker Spaniel Jarvis.

Kayley shared her discovery on social media

Much moved by his discovery, Kayley shared it on social networks on a page dedicated to the residents of his city. “I thought it was an incredible gesture. There were so many balls in this box that I just wish other people could go there too and bring their dogs there”, she explained in texts reported by Cambridgeshire Live.

Everyone was touched by the message and the Cocker’s generosity Jarvis. Some even confessed that they had tears in their eyes when they read the note. But sharing of Kayley on Facebook above all made it possible to find the owner Jarvis, Lian Wymer. The latter was able to provide details about the box of balls. “Jarvis is almost 11 now and has very severe arthritis so he is no longer fit for ball games. But he was a very active boy who liked to carry a ball in his mouth wherever we went.

Lean explained that she preferred to gift these games, which were “such a big part of Jarvis’s daily life”, rather than throwing them away. A touching initiative which will also give birth to a new canine friendship, because Ozzy and Jarvis shall meet soon!
