A dog is for life, not just for Christmas – we all know that. But when you’ve been planning and preparing for a canine friend for some time, and then someone buys you a surprise puppy, that’s totally okay.
In fact, it’s better than okay! There can surely be no gift that would ever top a puppy… or is there?
One man had an ingenious idea up his sleeve when he gifted his girlfriend with a puppy of her own, and his girlfriend never saw it coming.
Shelby Turner, the girlfriend in question, posted a video of the incident, filmed by a friend of her boyfriend, Shane, for the whole world to see. It ended up going viral, and 6 years later, with nearly 5 million views and counting, it seems that Shane’s idea was adorable enough to stand the test of time.
In the video, Shane has pulled up outside a house, where Shelby can be seen approaching his car.
“Here she is, all excited right now.”
This is definitely true – Shelby is nearly running to the car in her excitement to see her new puppy.
One of Shelby’s friends tells her to stand back and let the dog run to her, and we get a glimpse of the star of the show – and adorable chocolate labrador pup with a bright pink collar.
Shelby does as she’s told and stands back. But the little puppy has other ideas! She’s entered a new world, and it’s time for an adventure.
Unbothered by the pup’s lack of interest, Shelby follows her and scoops her up into her arms.
It’s love at first sight, and Shelby holds onto her new pup and tells her how cute she is.
Shane tells Shelby to read the dog’s name tag, but she’s too busy cuddling her new friend to listen at first. After all, what’s going to be more interesting on the pup’s name tag than the actual pup herself?
It’s not long until we find out exactly what.
Shelby continues to stroke her new pup, then stops to check out her cute pink bow. Even then, she never reads the pup’s name tag.
Shane must be shaking with anxiety inside by now! He repeats again:
“Read her name tag.”
Finally, Shelby looks for the name tag, and with a little help from Shane, she finds it. She immediately bursts into tears after taking a look.
Shane drops onto one knee, and it’s finally revealed what’s going on – this is a proposal!
And perhaps the most adorable proposal ever to happen. Shane pops the question, and Shelby can only fold up and cry in response. Eventually, she manages to gasp,
“Is this real?”
We’re not surprised she’s so confused – this must be the best day of her life, almost too good to be true!
Shelby’s still lost for words, so Shane unties a ring from the pup’s collar and slips it onto her finger. He stands up, giving her a big hug, and asks,
“Is that a yes?”
And Shelby manages to say yes through her sobs. It’s obvious just how special this moment is to her.
The best thing about this proposal is that Shelby won’t forget it for a long time, because her adorable chocolate lab will be a forever reminder of her perfect day. Hats off to Shane – he did everything right here to win her heart.
