Losing a companion is tough; it is even tougher when it was the companion who has been with you for decades. The sorrow can be crippling and may lead to depression, which is why this loving family helped their grieving grandfather overcome his loneliness with a little help from a tiny new companion.

A Belgian grandfather, grieving for his wife of 63 years, was brought to tears when his family brought him a new puppy. Within four months, Davy Vanhaesendonck’s grandpa lost his wife to a short illness as well as his dog.

The touching gift, which the family hoped would alleviate his loneliness, overwhelmed him with emotion. It's hard not to get a bit weepy watching this grandpa meet his new friend.

Both grandchildren and great-grandchildren have gathered together to present Grandpa with his new puppy, which Lisa, his great-granddaughter, chose especially for him. The senior can't keep his tears and we are slobbering over here with him. Where are those tissues?

Davy says: “After a marriage of 63 years together, grandma past away on July 26th 2014 after a short, but intense disease. Grandpa also lost his doggy all within 4 months. To give him energy and the courage to continue his life… We gave him this present. A moment filled with emotions!”
