    A Grandpa's Wife of 63 Years Dies, So His Family Got Him a Puppy…Prepare the Tissues

    Puppies are one of our favorite things, so when we heard there was a viral video out there involving the tiny, uncoordinated dogs, our hearts melted. Little did we know we'd also need a lot of tissues and a hug afterward, because this video includes an adorable old man as well. Game over. 

    YouTube user Davy Vanhaesendonck uploaded the video on Aug. 5, and it's already creeping close to 2 million views. According to the video's description, Vanhaesendonck's grandfather lost his wife "after a short, but intense disease" took her life. Within four months, he also lost his dog.

    The video description reads:

    After a marriage of 63 years together, grandma past away on July 26th 2014 after a short, but intense disease. Grandpa also lost his doggy all within 4months. To give him energy and the courage to continue his life... We gave him this present. A moment filled with emotions!

    When it rains, it pours for Vanhaesendonck's grandfather. However, the family decided to turn things around for him. They did so in the form of a brand new puppy named Snoopy. JUST LOOK AT THE SHEER JOY THIS PUPPY HAS BROUGHT.

    We're not sure if the new puppy cured all of this grandpa's sorrows, but hopefully he came pretty close. We think gifting one another puppies could cure a lot of issues...Just think about it. And feel free to send some puppies our way.
