These animal shelter dogs were allowed to pick a Christmas gift, here’s how it went
You might think that Christmas isn’t really about the presents, and some might even make you right, but you can’t deny that for plenty of us, they make for a pretty f**ken rad part of it. There’s probably no better way to see that than in reaction videos. And when you want pure reactions and unbridled joy, you go to the doggos. That’s why we reckon you’re gonna love this video…
Rightio, for a little bit of context, this video comes from Dogs Trust Ireland.
These guys are a charity organisation that help to rehome dogs and find them a bit of happiness and love.
As part of that, they make Christmas a bit better for each of the dogs in their care by giving them a pressie.
This year, the organisation gave 35 abandoned dogs a bit of Christmas love by letting them pick their own presents. The set-up’s pretty simple: line the toys up and let the dogs come in one at a time. The reactions are pretty f**ken good.
As Dogs Trust Ireland put it, “We recorded 35 dogs picking a toy and then spent (many) hours editing it to show the best reactions. One or two just wanted pets and snuggles more than a toy. The dogs were let in one by one, so we didn’t have to worry about any of them wanting the same toy.”
Giving the doggos a Christmas gift is a bit of a tradition, but the organisation likes to put a different spin on it every year..
“In 2017, we decided to do Secret Santa Paws for the dogs, where staff members bought a long-term dog a present specifically for them, and we recorded it and got a great reaction. In 2018, we wanted to do something different, so again the staff donated toys, but we thought the dogs might like to pick their own. So we lined them up, and it was the best day… the dogs were SO happy and watching them was just amazing. So we did it again this year, and combined supporter donations from under our tree in the reception with staff toy donations.
“As you will see, deciding on which toy was a big decision for some dogs and some delighted in the squeakiest toy they could find.”
Honestly, we bloody love it. Let’s just hope these legendary doggos find themselves good bloody homes to go to.
Final thought: Look, it’s that time of year, and everyone needs a bit of love. Seeing these dogs have their day made special has given us the warm fuzzies, so why don’t you blokes and sheilas share. What did you get your pets? Photos in the comments section, please!
