Daily Cute: Amazing Surprise for Pup When Family Leaves for Vacation

Daily Cute: Amazing Surprise for Pup When Family Leaves for Vacation

Igor the bulldog had never spent a night away from his family since he joined them. Since they were going away on vacation for a week, they decided that they wanted to make sure Igor was as happy and comfortable as possible while staying at a kennel.

So they decided to do some work, and show him the big surprise when the time came.

Wow, they did a lot for their "Forever Family Member"!

I just had to watch again. I love this video. I don't think any dogs want their family to go on vacation. It makes it so much easier to have a sitter come to them at home than to try and board them away from home.

Igor has a special dad who would do such a nice thing for his baby!! Igor is a lucky pup!!

Cute! That looks like something my husband would do for our Malamute. And the other two dogs too, I guess. :-)

This was amazing. The time and effort expended by family and friends (and the kennel owner) to put all this together for Igor is truly heart warming. It brought tears to my eyes. I remember the one time that I had to put my girl in a kennel when I had to leave for a bit, it was trauma for both of us!

I have been going to my vet over 25 years so felt secure leaving my baby girl for the first time when we were called out of town unexpectedly. What a shocking horror when we returned a week later to see she had not been given a single one of her toys or treats - even the ones we had purchased from them the day we checked her in. I was furious! I had planned to only stop by and peek in at her but she looked so traumatized that even though I knew it was not a day they released the animals, I DEMANDED mine. The woman appeared to at first want to argue with me, but I think once glance at my face and she shut right up. When she opened the door of the cage and Pepper saw me, I swear she walked across the woman's head and the rest on air to get to me. This was on a Saturday and Monday I had a nice "little" chat to convey my unhappiness with their boarding, letting them know although I loved their vets, my dog would never set foot in their boarding arrangements again. To think she had sat in those darned cages all week, ignored, alone, and not even her favorite toys to make the pain somewhat tolerable.

Always sad leaving a pet when you go away but Igor has a loving family and they catered to all his needs. Looks like he was enjoying his home from home holiday. Brilliant.

Brian, I love doing this to you, this is from NPR, which everybody knows is liberal to the max, BUT it…

WRONG Gerald. “Field carnage” is caused by reckless agriculture and is the unnecessary killing…

So glad Paru was saved, he is fortunate, many others are not.
