Kids Surprise Dad With A New Puppy After His Family Dog Passed Away

Every dog owner knows that our four-legged friends are far more than just pets. From the moment we bring them home, our dog becomes family. We love them just as much as the people in our lives (if not more) and they are always there for us, unconditionally and without fail.

That’s why it’s so incredibly devastating when a family dog passes away. It feels like losing a part of ourselves and there’s nothing that can quite replace that.However, this dad whose kids recently surprised with a new puppy after his dog passed away, is learning that there may be room in his heart for a new furry companion.

Twitter user @yvonnethebird12 recently shared an emotional video where she surprised her dad with a new puppy.

She captioned the footage: “My dad has been really depressed ever since our family dog passed away and today I surprised him with a new puppy.”

And it was love at first sight.


@yvonnethebird12 later shared a photo of her dad and his new pal napping together.


She captioned the photo: “Update: they love each other already.”

Needless to say, people were touched by the pure moment.

Who’s chopping onions in here?!?
