Golden Retriever Unwraps A Puppy For Christmas

Hilary Gowan


Did you get what you wanted for Christmas, a Golden Retriever named Cash, 12, unwrapped his present... and found a puppy inside. A video showed how the owners brought a box to the excited dog. Cash stood to attention and sniffed the package before pushing the top off, revealing a puppy inside!

Cash was instantly excited, hopping about to welcome the young dog into the house. The puppy promptly got out of the box and started bonding with the veteran dog.


Cash had been lonely since Rosie, the other dog of his owner, had suddenly died three years ago. Cash felt lonely, so owner Marie Ahonen wanted to cheer him and give him a friend.

"Cash has been the best dog, but he's been a little lonely since we lost Rosie," Marie told the press. "He was so excited when the puppy popped out of the box. I knew he would be good [with another dog], but I never expected the reaction of pure joy – I had tears watching him. There's now so much joy and sparkle in Cash's eyes, he's got a new lease of life. They've been best buds ever since."
