Dogs are not just loyal, brave, and adorable animals; they are very grateful creatures, too. For them, any gifts that are given to them, no matter how big or small, would always be special to them because it’s the thought that they really appreciate the most. And even if it’s the least of the gifts they expect, they would still do their best to show that the gift is truly appreciated. This fact is what a Golden Retriever has precisely shown in a series of funny pictures uploaded by his mom on Twitter.
In the photos, the dog named Kenny can be seen sitting happily on the pillow that his mom just bought. The problem was, it was not a pillow but Kenny’s actual bed! His bed was so small that it would be of no use but a pillow for him.
But why would his mom buy him a tiny bed that he couldn’t obviously use properly? Actually, it wasn’t intentional. When Kenny’s mom ordered a brand new mattress for her dog, it appears that she forgot to check its exact size and ordered it right away. She only discovered that she got the wrong size (horribly wrong size) when the package was delivered to their house.
Kenny’s mom was disappointed about this mistake, but surprisingly, Kenny took the bed right away and showed that he appreciated his mom’s gift. Whether Kenny was pretending or not, the appreciative response that he gave was awe-inspiring, and above all, heartwarming. His mom was so fascinated by his reaction that she decided to take a series of photos of Kenny with his brand new bed.
In the photos, there was not even a single trace that Kenny was disappointed or frustrated. Instead, he can be seen with so much appreciation and even seems to be proud of his newly received gift.
When his human sister retweeted Kenny’s photos, it quickly went viral on social media. It was not only because of the funny story behind them but also because of Kenny’s touching gratefulness for the gift. Kenny’s photos were so well-received that it was shared 16,000 times by over 135,000 netizens.
Meanwhile, Kenny’s mom ordered another bed for him, and this time, she made sure that its size would be the right one and her beloved dog would be comfortable in it.
