Viral Video: Family Surprises Grandmother With Puppy

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A grandmother had the shock of her life when her family surprised her with a puppy. Helen was so overjoyed to receive Jenni, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, because she had one that looked just like her that passed away in February."


YouTube video description

This poor grandma lost her kitty only a few weeks after her beloved pooch passed away from a heart condition.

When friends or family surprise us with an unexpected or unwanted gift we feel obligated feign excitement and enthusiasm.

But this grandmother was clearly excited about her precious gift, a cute-as-a button puppy.

This sweet old lady`s family knew she was an animal lover, and they weren`t surprised that she was thrilled with her gift. But I would caution my readers to think twice before giving a puppy or a kitten as a gift, not everybody may be ready for such a serious commitment.
