This adorable ‘spur of the moment’ puppy surprise leaves a dog-loving girl absolutely speechless, as she struggles to come to terms with the new addition to her family.
Hiding behind her hands in anticipation, Alexa Cavalea is about to be given the surprise of a life-time by her partner Harry Kendall, as a fluffy bundle of joy awaits her gaze.
Peering through the cracks in her fingers, the hands clasped over her eyes soon move to cover her mouth, as the pup-enthusiast enters a state of utter shock upon seeing a baby golden retriever before her.
With tears streaming down her face, Alexa begins to hyperventilate, failing to muster even a single audible word as she wheezes and cries at the thought of this new cuddly companion being hers.
Alexa, from San Diego, California, USA, said: “I had absolutely no idea.
“I’ve been sending Harry pictures of golden retrievers for about six months, but he always said no to getting another dog.
“Then suddenly while he was at work one day, he had a change of heart and called to say he ‘had a surprise’ for me.
“I couldn’t believe it when I opened my eyes, I though the surprise was going to be a burger because I hadn’t eaten yet.
“I couldn’t stop crying and I was completely overcome with happiness.
“Marley is the perfect addition to our family and I can’t imagine life without him now.”
