Family Surprises Dad With New Puppy

Dogs are typically called ‘man’s best friend’, but for one Ontario father, James Xuerob, his two dogs were more like children to him.

So when his dogs, Nemo and Lucy, passed away, he was devastated and completely lost without them. As hard as their passing was on the rest of the Xuerob family, it was even harder for them to see how sad James was and how much he was struggling to move on.

Eventually, James’ family decided they had to do something to help, so they bought a Bichon Frise puppy to surprise him and hopefully cheer him up. “No, I am not Nemo. Nor could I ever be Lucy,” James’ family wrote in a card as they presented the weeks-old puppy to him.

“My mommy brought me to bring you some happiness back into your life.” And when James finally realized what his family had bought him, he struggled to contain his emotions before bursting into tears of joy as he cuddled with his new companion.
