(PIX11) — A grieving widower cried tears of joy when his grandson gave him a fuzzy four-legged surprise.
“As most of you already know, we have lost someone very special last week,” Davy Vanhaesendonck said in the video.
According to Vanhaesendonck, his grandmother passed away a few weeks ago from a “short, but intense disease.”
The grandparents were married for 63 years.
The widower also lost his dog within four months of losing his wife.
To give him the energy and courage to continue his life, the family got together to surprise him with a puppy.
“I can’t believe it,” the grandfather said as soon as he saw the pup.
Together the family named their newest member Snoopy.
