Even though this is probably the cutest thing I’ve seen a long while, I’m sure that there are one or two kids out there that are going to be a little bit upset about being replaced by 3 dogs as ballboys at a tennis match. During a friendly between Venus Williams and Svetlana Kuznetsova in Auckland, New Zealand, ASB Classic enlisted the help of Ted, Oscar and Super Teddy, some the cutest puppies around as ballboys for the tennis match. The little pups are incredibly well trained and only run onto the court once a ball strikes the net and goes out of play (which is pretty impressive, given what we know about dogs and tennis balls).
Apparently there aren’t plans to roll the trend out to other tennis matches as yet, which is unfortunate because I would so much rather watch the doggies run back and forth between games to pick up the balls than weird gangly children.
Get ready for a cuteness overload!
