World’s best boyfriend surprises girlfriend with puppy

This is the adorable moment a man’s girlfriend bursts into tears of joy when he surprises her with the puppy of her dreams.  

When Tamara Alison’s dog Safari died three years ago aged 14 she struggled to come to terms with the loss.

But recently the Canadian sociology student, 23, decided she was ready to have another dog and mentioned it to her boyfriend of two years Joah Wood.

Mr Wood, 22, told her it would be too expensive to get a blue heeler cross border collie puppy – Miss Alison’s dream pet.

But little did she know the kindhearted sales manager was scheming with her mother Sandra Alison, 58, to make her dreams come true.

The duo picked out a female puppy called Macky after seeing an advert online and planned to surprise Miss Alison with it on her 23rd birthday.

Mr Wood collected Macky in the morning – telling his partner he had to do some last-minute shopping to get her a present – and hid in their garden with it as he waited patiently.

Mrs Alison managed to get her daughter outside by asking her to help bring some washing in and just as she came to the door, Mr Wood sprung out with the surprise.

Heartwarming footage shows him saying ‘Happy birthday baby,’ as he hands her the new pet, which is now three months old.

She bursts into tears and squeals: ‘No, oh my God, are you real?’ before taking the pooch in her arms as her triumphant boyfriend mutters ‘Success!’

Ms Wood, of Vancouver, Canada said: ‘When I saw the puppy I was so euphoric. I was totally overwhelmed with emotion.

‘You never think something like that is going to happen.

‘I told Joah that he is officially the best boyfriend in the world.’

She added: ‘I had a dog for 14 years of my life but she passed away three years ago.

‘It was really hard. I wanted to wait for a few years before getting another dog because I wanted to be ready.

‘Recently I started fostering a dog and I really loved her but she wasn’t working out with my family so I had to give her back which was heartbreaking.

‘That is when my mom and boyfriend decided, ‘Tamara needs a dog in her life.’

‘It has been amazing, really rewarding. Macky is a super smart dog. I am very very happy and grateful.’

Mr Wood added: ‘Tamara mentioned she wanted a puppy but I made it seem like it was never going to happen.

‘It was always in the back of my mind so I got with her mom before her birthday and we planned it out.

‘I was trying to be super secretive so she didn’t realise I was texting her mom. I was trying to keep my phone away from her and she was getting kind of weird about it.

‘But I was just like, ‘You wait…’

‘She was 100 per cent surprised. It was totally worth it.

‘Her reaction was amazing.’
