LOSING toy balls is a thing of a past, as four-legged friends can chase after borrowed balls in Bayswater.
The Cool Breeze Café, a mobile caravan, located in Riverside Gardens offers a ball-lending library to customers and dog owners.
Cafe owner Giorgia Johnson said the service was an incentive to satisfy customers and their dogs.
“I noticed that a lot of balls were ending up lost in the river or snapped up by other dogs, with the sad owners and dogs then having to leave the park,” Ms Johnson said.
“So to give the owners of ball-mad dogs a break, we set up a library to lend out balls to keep everyone happy.
“The result is that owners now have time to drink their coffee in peace, because there’s nothing sadder than a dog without a ball… except their owner.”
She said they had about 15 different balls that would accommodate all dogs.
