Grandma Brought To Instant Tears Because She's Surprised With New Puppy
Jul 05, 2020
In January, Twitter user @ali_bubbles10 posted a video of her grandmother having the sweetest reaction when her family surprised her with a new puppy after losing her dog unexpectedly.
We're not crying, you're crying. Or, in this case, Grandma is crying when her family surprises her with a new puppy. If you're a pet lover, you know just how important it can be to have that sort of constant companionship. Moreover, elderly individuals—such as our grandparents—often find quite a lot of comfort in owning a pet. After all, it's a source of companionship and happiness.
This grandmother lost her last dog rather unexpectedly about a year ago and had decided she was ready to adopt a new puppy. What she wasn't expecting, however, was for her family to surprise her with an adorable new puppy. Losing a pet, especially when it's unexpected, can be exceptionally difficult. Adopting a new pet may not replace your previous pet, but it does help fill the vacancy the loss of a pet leaves. Additionally, the elderly often need and appreciate the affection and companionship a dog provides.
When you're older, it can be difficult to maintain contact with your friends and family. It can feel somewhat isolating, which is why so many of our grandparents often reach out to us — they're lonely. Therefore, owning a dog can make a world of difference in their lives. This grandmother had decided she was ready to welcome a new dog into her home. Her family knew that she desperately wanted a puppy. When her daughter and grandchildren saw the opportunity to get a puppy for her, they took it.
The family filmed the surprise on camera, capturing the grandmother's complete joy in receiving such a special and thoughtful gift. Her daughter walks into the room, mentioning that someone had decided they didn't want some items the grandmother had given away. She has a box in her hands. The grandmother looks confused, but says something along the lines of "Hmm, well okay, give it here."
The daughter hands her mother a box, which the grandmother opens immediately. Inside the box, we see a blanket with an incredibly small white and brown-spotted puppy. Her immediate reaction was to say, "Oh my God," but you can see the joy, shock, and happiness on this grandmother's face. Within a few moments, she's become teary-eyed. She's clearly overjoyed her family gave her such a meaningful gift.
She starts sobbing from joy as she reaches into the box to pick up the puppy. She holds it against her chest, still crying, while stroking her new dog's head. The puppy is obviously a little confused, as well as somewhat overwhelmed and scared of the new environment. However, when the grandmother holds the new puppy close to her, you can see it relax into her arms.
At the end of the day, owning a pet can create a world of difference in someone's lives. We can tell just how much animals mean to this grandmother, and how dearly she wanted to have a small dog to call her own again. She's absolutely overwhelmed by how thoughtful, kind, and caring her family was in providing her a pet.
While it's true that families should avoid giving pets as gifts, this is a unique situation. This grandmother had mentioned, on multiple occasions, that she'd love to have a new dog and even asked about owning one. She actively wanted this pet, and, based on her reaction, you can tell she's going to love and care for it throughout their time together.
