The two puppies were adorable. Rice knew that no other dog could take Remington’s place, but a new puppy would bring a new love to the family. Could two bring twice the love?

“Oh my god we’re in so much trouble,” posted Rice on social media, along with the video. “My dad is going to kill us.” Sometimes even the best intentions can land you in hot water.

The video went viral with thousands of retweets and shares.

Though the two seemed concerned about how Rice’s father would respond, social media had things to say about that. One tweet said, “Get rid of the old man, keep them both I say.”

Dad must have come around, because the Rice family decided to keep the two puppies, named Paisley and Rocky.  After all, It’s not every day that you see two minds thinking  so much alike and two cute little faces as a result.

“It’s been so crazy!” said Rice. “I don’t know what to feel.” With two new furry little members in the family, this Valentine’s Day is sure to be filled with love.
