Losing a beloved pet is not something one just “gets over.” Animals quickly become part of our lives and our families, and it takes a while to process the grief that comes with saying goodbye.
In January 2020, Joie Dyanna Stockton and her husband lost their Doberman named Gunner. In a video, Joie explains that Gunner died tragically after being poisoned. Her husband still hadn’t recovered from his sorrow a year later, so Joie decided to give him a fresh start. She secretly arranged to get him a new Doberman puppy and then recorded his reaction when he spotted the adorable canine in his truck’s passenger seat.
His reaction is too sweet for words! You can feel the emotion straight through the screen. Watch the doting dad meet his new pup in the video below, and be sure to share this touching moment with others.
