Grandpa was entrusted with this dog while his daughter was away on a trip, and the adorable messages he sent her went viral.
Meghan Specksgoor’s father showed off his phenomenal skills this holiday season when his daughter traveled to New York, leaving her beloved dog Chance in her hands. Meghan has no human children, she is exclusively a dog mother at the moment, but if she ever wants one, rest assured that her father will be ready for a grandchild.
Meghan told Bored Panda:
They usually get along really well. Chance is allowed to do whatever he wants with my dad, like a real grandson, and gets all kinds of treats the whole time he’s with him.
Meghan met her four-legged friend at the Richmond Animal League (RAL). She says she entered the shelter accompanying a friend who was looking for a puppy. And he came out with a full request for Chance, who was taken away with his jaw broken by someone shooting him.
She left her dog with her dad and he sent her the cutest messages
He had surgery to put a plate in his jaw and he’s been perfect ever since. It was renamed after my favorite rapper ‘Chance the Rapper’, and I thought it was fitting because he got a second chance at life.
Since then, Chance has been very happy with Meghan and her family, but especially with her grandfather.
When Meghan had to travel to New York and left Chance with Grandpa, she received the following message along with a selfie:
Luckily, Meghan decided to tweet everything Chance and her dad were up to. It seems that this duo has already developed a certain appetite for sharing many experiences together.
Then came this delightful update:
As you can see, Meghan’s dad doesn’t just give Chance treats, he teaches her the value of earning a reward through good behavior.
The technique paid off! Chance got his pedicure and he won his ice cream. Look at that smile!
After a busy day, Meghan’s father wrote to her one last time to bid her good night and remind her daughter how much they loved her. Oh !
Meghan was so thrilled with her father’s meticulous care of Chance that she posted his messages on Twitter, where they received over 190,000 likes and 50,000 retweets.
Grandpa gained fame on Twitter, but Meghan has yet to explain to him what ‘viral’ means.
The feedback was immediate, with some even thinking that instead of grandchildren what they need is more dogs.
Would you leave your dog to this grandfather?
