Sometimes gift giving can be really hard, especially when the occasion for the gift is momentous, such as a wedding.
But one father knew exactly what to get his daughter and her fiancé for their wedding present — but he wanted it to be a surprise.
He told his daughter that he was taking her and her fiancé ziplining, when in reality, he was taking her on a three-hour car ride to pick up her present.
Recording her reaction the entire time, they pass a sign and she gasps when she reads it: “golden retrievers.” To which her dad and fiancé respond, “what?”
She then starts to repeat, “What are we doing? What are we doing?”
They continue driving, as she gets more and more antsy in the back seat. “What are we doing?”
“We’re getting a dog,” her fiancé finally says. “No we’re not,” she replies in disbelief.
“Yeah you are,” her dad chimes in. “I am?!” she responds.
When they affirm that’s what is happening, she covers her face and begins to cry tears of joy.
“Why are you crying about it?” her dad laughs.
“For real?!” she cries, and gets out of the car. What happens next is the joy anyone feels when they get a new puppy, and luckily it was caught on camera.
“It’s your guys’ wedding present,” her dad says to her as she gives him a hug.
She still seems to be in disbelief, but her father reassures her they didn’t drive three hours “for fun.”
Before too long, a squirmy little Goldendoodle puppy is in her arms and licking her face as she holds her close.
The little puppy wags its tail as she meets her new parents, running and jumping between the two.
It’s clear from the reactions of the couple and the puppy that they will be a happy little family. This dad sure knew how to make his little girl happy.
