Grandpa Takes His Dog Shopping To Help Him Choose New Recliner

When Aleecia Dahl’s grandfather was shopping around for a new recliner one thing was non-negotiable: The chair had to be the right fit for him and his beloved dog Coco.

So he took her furniture shopping. Dahl told The Dodo that Coco is “the dog Grandpa never wanted but cannot live without,” calling them “the best of friends.” According to Dahl a chair that would accommodate both man and his best friend was the priority and the pair took their time to get it right.

“It was Grandpa’s requirement that the footrest on his lounge chair was wide enough for him and Coco to sit side by side.”

Dahl told The Dodo that the dog is her grandpa’s “little best friend” and said they were welcomed in each store they visited.

“He brought Coco into several stores to try out chairs until he found the perfect one,” Dahl said.

She added that “Coco was always greeted with a smile.”

Happily, Dahl reports that the discerning shoppers eventually found the perfect chair. It’s safe to say this man has his priorities in good order and that Coco is a lucky dog.
