Dogs Instead Of Grandchildren? It Sure Worked For These Two!

Some parents aren’t too pleased when it comes to taking care of their children’s pets, but the story of one daughter who left her dog with her father when she had to travel to New York City turned out to be one of the most heartwarming tales in 2017, with social media users commenting dogs can almost be like grandchildren.

Around Christmastime last year, Meghan Specksgoor had no one to leave her 4-year-old dog with when she had to visit NYC, so she turned to her dad for help since he and Chance always got along well, BoredPanda writes.

“They usually get along great,” Meghan reveals. “Chance is allowed to do whatever he wants with my dad – like an actual grandchild – and is given all sorts of treats the whole time he’s with him.”

And what a treat for all of us this turned out to be. Meghan decided to upload everything that Chance and her dad did together while she was away, and the story quickly received over 150K likes. Check it out.
