Grieving Grandfather Gets A Labrador Puppy For Christmas

A grieving grandad who lost his wife of 50 years a month ago was given a puppy for Christmas – and the hearts of thousands across the globe have melted at his reaction.

A video of Patrick O’Goan, 68, meeting Buddy for the first time shows the precious moment when the little Labrador puppy brings new joy into the life of the recently bereaved widower. Mr O’Goan’s black Labrador also died earlier in 2018 and his family had been searching for a new pet for a while.

The adorable video filmed at their home in Strabane, Northern Ireland, shows the moment Mr O’Goan meets his new puppy Buddy for the first time on Christmas Eve.
