It is universal knowledge that dogs are a man’s best friend. They are known to be loyal to their owner up until the end. Most households have at least one pet dog, and they are often considered as pets, but some are treated like a family member.
This is why when the family dog passes away, the entire family mourns their loss. The Rice Family underwent the said painful experience.
Remmington was the Rice family’s pet dog who passed away after getting hit by a car. So, Natalie Rice decided to surprise her mother with a new puppy as an early Valentine’s gift.
She hid the puppy in her possession, and with a camera on hand, she went on to surprise her mother. Little did she know that she was in for a bigger surprise!
Mrs. Rice apparently had the same thoughts as her daughter. Thinking that the loss of their family dog had been a big blow to her daughter, she went on and brought home a new puppy for the family.
Natalie posted about the incident on Twitter saying that her dad was going to kill them for bringing home two puppies even though it was purely accidental.
Now, after the loss of their family dog, Remmington, the Rice family gained a new blue heeler puppy and a new Labrador puppy. Luckily for the both of them, even though, Mr. Rice was mad at first, but they decided to keep both of the puppies they brought home.
Natalie told the Daily Mail that they were delighted in keeping both dogs in their family.
Indeed, there is no better Valentine’s gift than two unintentional puppies.
