Plan to replace Wimbledon ball boys with dogs fails for very adorable reason

(Thanks to Annette)

We personally would watch a LOT more tennis if the players had to battle dogs to get the balls back.

What could possibly go wrong?

Trained cats are the way to go. I think training the retrievers to get golf balls in ponds would be more productive.

I agree with LeDud. Let the dogs drive the golf carts too!

Yeah, whatever genius came up with this plan should be cleaning the Wimbledon toilet block from now on.

Don't see how you could get rid of the slobber. Dogs are famous for licking their balls.

If you could lick your own balls, who would even THINK of playing tennis?

I vote for cats, they will chase any ball, but they aren't good at retrieving. I also don't play tennis or golf simply because I'm not good at it. As Kinky Friedman said about golf: "The only two good balls I ever hit was when I stepped on a garden rake."

Would Lucy cooperate?

Just what part of this is "poorly-behaved"?

Ehhh, most of the slobber will be gone after a couple of serves.
