Coming up with a birthday present for someone you love can often be a hard decision. While most dads would be happy to receive a funny shirt or a coffee mug, this father gets an adorable puppy for his birthday in 2004.
During Doug’s 46th birthday party, his wife has him open a box as one of his gifts. In the small wooden box, the birthday boy pulls out a collar that reads “Stella,” along with a picture frame. In the frame, there’s a photo of Doug’s family with a cute puppy.
Looking confused, his wife says, “That’s Stella,” referring to the puppy in the photo. Then Doug’s step-son walks in the room with a fluffy golden retriever puppy in his hands. At this point, Doug is at a loss for words.
When his step-son hands Stella to her new human dad, Doug gets smothered in fresh puppy kisses. She cuddles up against his face as the birthday boy is still in shock. Clearly, he’s already in love with his new best friend.
