The touching message of a dog with arthritis who could no longer play with his balls

During a walk in a park, a dog walker and her English Springer discovered a cardboard box with a moving message.

Kayley Drewitt lives at littleportin England. She is a professional dog walker. One day, while she was walking in a park with the dog of one of her clients, Kayley made a startling discovery.

A box full of old tennis balls

Kayley was walking with Ozzya 7-month-old English Springer, at Ely Country Park. That’s when they noticed an intriguing cardboard box. They approached, and Ozzy immediately plunged his head in and came out with a bullet in his mouth. The box was indeed filled with old tennis balls.

A message filled with love

On the front of the cardboard, a message had been written 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 doggies would have fun with them. With love. Jarvis the Cocker Spaniel.

Kayley shared her discovery on social media

Very touched by her discovery, Kayley shared it on social networks on a page dedicated to the inhabitants of his city. “I thought it was an incredible gesture. There were so many balls in this box that I just wanted other people to be able to go there and bring their dogs there too”, she explained in lyrics reported by Cambridgeshire Live.

Everyone was touched by the message and the generosity of the Cocker Jarvis. Some even confessed to having tears in their eyes when they read the note. But the sharing of Kayley on Facebook above all made it possible to find the owner of Jarvis, Lian Wymer. The latter was able to provide details on the box of balls. “Jarvis is almost 11 now and he has very severe arthritis, so he is no longer fit for the 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’ daily life”, rather than throwing them away. A touching initiative which will also allow to give birth to a new canine friendship, because Ozzy and Jarvis should meet soon!
