Video Proof That Dogs Would Make the Best Tennis Ball Boys
Some of the best tennis players in the world were no match for these enthusiastic ball boys. Venus Williams took on two-time Grand Slam winner Svetlana Kuznetsova in a recent friendly match in Auckland, New Zealand, but a trio of four-legged ball boys completely stole the show. Ted, Oscar, and Super Teddy—a bull mastiff, border collie, and Jack Russell-Norfolk terrier-miniature schnauzer mix, respectively—are, according to the ASB YouTube channel, "the cheekiest ball boys (dogs) in the world."
With retrieving tendencies hardwired into their genes, we have to ask: Why aren't dogs always used as ball boys? We'd tune in to see that.
