Venus Williams Gets Help From Canine Ball Boys

The first days of 2015 have been brutal. What you need (what we all need) is a unicorn chaser — something that offers such delight and joy that it clears your mental palate so you can face the day again. Well, we have the perfect unicorn chaser for you.
As part of a cheeky social media campaign on behalf of the ASB Classic, a women's tennis tournament in Auckland, New Zealand, three doggy ball boys were brought out to play fetch during a match between Venus Williams and Svetlana Kuznetsova. They are even wearing little sweatbands on their forelegs.
These dogs even have their own impressive bios. Super Teddy is an 8-year-old terrier mix who reigns supreme as the winner of 2014 New Zealand Clever Canine Competition; he also has the title of the Best Eyebrows in Tennis. Oscar, the especially slobbery one, is a rescued Bullmastiff who has the occasional TV and film gig. Check out that slow-motion jowl action! Ted, the Border Collie, recently snagged the title of Obedience Champion.
Can you feel the weight of the world lifting, even for a second? [Mashable]
