A young girl got the surprise of her life when her parents bought her a puppy.
Kirby Mackenzie, 18, breaks down in tears when her parents Doug and Sharon give her a gift bag containing the happy little puppy as a graduation present.
Dad Doug, a warehouse labourer, said: “Kirby has wanted a mini wiener dog as long as we can remember.
“Constantly dropping hints, sending us pictures all the time.
“We do have a large hound, but that is really my son’s dog.
“She has never had a dog of her own.”
Kirby, who now works as a waitress, never expected to get the gift she had always wanted just two weeks after her graduation.
Doug said: “There was no chance she expected us to get her gift, let alone a puppy.
“She did not suspect a thing.
“Kirby named the puppy Marley.
“It was an amazing feeling to see how she reacted.
“Marley is now ten weeks old and hasn’t left Kirby’s side.”
