It’s the joy on children’s faces that we typically look for and cherish on Christmas morning, but now and again, an adult can produce a reaction that’s every bit as touching and powerful. At least that’s what Philip Duskiewicz’s dad proved last week when he got a good look at his gift and responded like a five-year-old child.

Told his present was in the car, the middle-aged man headed outside, poked his head in the window and saw an adorable little puppy. His reaction is one of pure euphoria, and not surprisingly, footage of the look on his face has been racing around the Internet all day today. You can take a look at the clip below…

Puppies tend to be either great gifts or horrible gifts. There’s really not an ambiguous gray area involved given all the work it takes and the more than decade long commitment. Luckily for all involved, the dude here clearly fell on the right side of that fence and will no doubt cherish this dog for the rest of his life.

I wish there was a follow-up video with the dad taking the dog into the backyard and playing around with a tennis ball or something, but considering this was only published this morning, there’s clearly time left to give the world updates. Until then, cross your fingers you can make your dad as happy as this guy next Christmas.
