Man Honors the Memory of a Dog with a Unique Gesture

An Instagram user who goes by the handle “imso” made a lot of friends when he posted a lovely tribute to a dog named Everything, who passed away two years ago. The picture of a bunch of tennis balls and a flier was accompanied by a heartfelt note:

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…

The response was overwhelming, and the owner posted his favorite video of his time with everything. You can see both posts below.

What a lovely way to honor the memory of a beloved companio, by trying to encourage other to find similar joy.

  1. YOU are an incredible person for what you are doing…….so sorry for your loss.
    We have lost 6 of our 8 rescue dogs (Setters and Retrievers) in the last 15-20 years and it never gets easier!!!!
    We are blessed to have had them and YOU are blessed for what you do.

  2. Thank you for your kindness and your undying love for your companion. Six of my closest companions have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, and I find it doesn’t get any easier to let go. My one consolation and hope is that one day, we will all reunite on the other side.
