Kristen and her dog, Ava, were out for a walk when they spotted a sign in a neighbor’s yard that read, ‘Boone is looking for his 8″ blue ball.’ The sign had a photo of the sad-looking yellow lab sitting out in his yard without his ball.
Kristen and Ava immediately knew they had to help their new friend. So they set out to look for his beloved blue ball.
The pair looked around near Boone’s yard on the road and in the tall grass on either side of the road, as well as in a nearby lake, taking breaks for snacks along the way. However, they had no luck finding Boone’s treasured toy.

So Kristen and Ava returned home and formed a new plan. They decided to purchase another 8-inch blue ball just like Boone’s old one to give him in place of his old ball. Kristen wrapped the ball in blue gift wrap and had Ava sign the card with her paw.
Then they drove back to Boone’s house and left the package on the driveway for him to find.
On their next walk, Kristen and Ava noticed a new sign in the same yard. It had a photo of Boone looking very happy with his new ball, and it read, “Boone says thank you.”
Kristen and Ava can’t wait to meet Boone in real life someday. But for now, it’s enough that their simple act of kindness made a friend they’ve never met happy. Nice work, Kristen and Ava!
