One man’s memorial for his beloved dog has turned into a viral giving sensation. When Chris posted a memorial for his dog Everything (yep, that’s the name) on Instagram, he offered to send anyone who asked a tennis ball to enjoy with their dog. He wanted to share Everything’s story and passion for fetch with dogs and dog lovers around the world. His post quickly spread far and wide. One follower was so inspired by the idea, they took it to the next level.
Chris’ Instagram post about his recently passed dog
On Jan 23 I’ll mark 2 years without my best friend. I purchased 100 tennis balls last week. I plan on sending them to anyone who wants one. I hope that all the people who get a ball from me will use it to spend some quality time with their best friend. If you would like a ball please email me your name and address and I will send you one. Direct message on IG works too. If you know someone who might like a ball feel free to tag them. I cover all costs… My email is email@example.com The artwork on the flyer was put together kindly by @steezjuice.. Edit: wow, i am blown away by the requests for tennis balls. Going to have to buy some more now. Thank you to everyone who requested a ball. Ill do my best to make sure everybody gets one. Thank you all. #tennisballsforeverything #dogsofinstagram #dogs #bestfriend #inlovingmemory #Rottweiler #boxer #bulldog #goldenretriever #frenchbulldog #puppy #Doberman #chihuahua #tennis #love #remember #dog #woofADVERTISEMENT
The folks at Dan’s Pet Care collected 4,000 tennis balls for a very special purpose. Dan’s team wanted to create a viral video to spread Everything’s memory, and to share tennis balls with shelter dogs so that they could make wonderful memories with their new families.
Tennis balls for Everything
In the video, tennis balls are dumped into a swimming pool and two rescued Golden retrievers have their own pool party with them. Dan’s Pet Care will mail a bag of tennis balls to dog rescues anywhere in the US just by tagging the organization in the comments to the video post on Facebook.
