The holidays are a joyful time of year where we celebrate the season of giving by buying or making presents for our loved ones. But it isn’t humans who participate in the festivities. Dogs can be involved too.

A dog named Cash was given a very special gift one Christmas after losing his best friend.

Marie Ahonen had two adorable and happy golden retrievers in her home named Cash and Rosie. The two were her great companions and have always been together with her in good and bad times. Cash and Rosie were inseparable as they had grown old together under the same roof.

Their days together were all rainbows and butterflies; however, no one would expect that this happy atmosphere would suddenly come to an end.

Cash was in his senior years when Rosie suddenly passed away. Imagining the amount of time that they have spent together, Cash and his owners must have felt pain in their hearts as they witnessed Rosie gone to heaven.

The pooch was left alone and sad, and you cannot deny that Cash felt a longing for his best friend, Rosie. As his fur-parents were still there to take care of him, in return, he continues to be a good boy to them. Three years passed, and 12-year-old Cash continued to serve the family as their guardian and as a great son.

The family knew what the best gift is for him on Christmas.

Christmas was fast approaching, and people had already started decorating their houses with Christmas-themed decor. It is a holiday that almost everyone is looking forward to, including Cash.

The family knew how much of a good boy he was, so they decided to give him a present. However, choosing a gift for him is important especially for what he has gone through.

Considering their dog’s lonesome feelings, the parents already knew what kind of gift to give him – a new companion.

The sleigh bells are ringing and the chilly, winter air has brought it along to the houses. It was time for gifts.

Cash was excited and anxious about what he was going to receive while his parents equally felt the same way thinking of how their dog is going to react to their gift.

Dad was behind the door getting Cash’s present and the pooch excitedly waited in front. As soon as the door opened, Cash greeted him and the big box with utmost curiosity. Finally, the dad put the box down.

A pup’s head pushed the lid away, revealing himself to Cash and the rest of the family.

You could see the sudden glow on Cash’s face as he watched the cute puppy with awe. His tail started to wag rapidly, clearly saying that he is more than happy to meet a new friend.

Cash continued to examine the little puppy in the box, and despite his excitement, he was so gentle with him as if trying to pet a fly. The puppy was also happy to see the large dog too and they went on exchanging sniffs to familiarize each other’s scent.
