An elderly dog was given the ultimate Christmas gift this month – and he couldn’t have been happier about it.
Cash, a 12-year-old Golden Retriever, was caught on camera opening up the present after a year of good behaviour landed him on Santa’s nice list.
What was it, you ask? A puppy, that’s what.
According to owner Marie Ahonen, the pet had been a feeling lonely over the past few years after his sister, Rosie, died suddenly in 2014.
So in a bid to give Cash his youth back, they introduced a new family member – Jennings.
In a video shot by the family, one of Cash’s owners is seen walking into the lounge with a neatly wrapped box.
The Golden Retriever instantly starts to get excited – and as the box is set onto the floor, Cash is left literally jumping for joy.
Marie said: ‘Cash has been the best dog, but he’s been a little lonely since we lost Rosie.
‘So, we decided that we would get Cash an extra special Christmas present. He was so excited when the puppy popped out of the box.
‘I knew he would be good [with another dog], but I never expected the reaction of pure joy – I had tears watching him.
‘There’s now so much joy and sparkle in Cash’s eyes, he’s got a new lease of life.
‘They’ve been best buds ever since.’
