Two weeks later: "I have to pick up the dog poop AGAIN?!  Can we just get rid of the dog?"

Fark is so funny. There is nothing particularly amazing about that kids response. Sweet - but hardly shocking. Children are not the evil annoying grasping creatures that the typical farker imagines them to be. Parenting is a wonderful amazing experience. Yes it can be hard messy work but loving affectionate moments like this are a regular occurrence for most parents.

All I see is a kid who's happy he doesn't have to wear that old ratty leash he used to have.

Yet another reminder that my mother absolutely refused to get a dog. Biatch.

Considering this is Fark.com, and kids being kids these days, I half-expected a video of some pissed-off kid not getting what he wanted while trying to shove the TV remote up his ass. Or something similar.

You're right, Fark is funny.  That was a great video and you just pooped on it.

No I didn't. Its a sweet vid like I said. Everyone should watch it. Especially on Fark which is populated overwhelmingly by college educated males over 30 with no children. Most kids are awesome just like the kid in the video.

Fark, as a community, tends to see having children is seen as something "other people" do as though parenting was some kind of deviant behavior. It cracks me up.

But I have the flu and have been drinking hot toddies for 48 hours straight. So you can take anything I say today with a grain of salt.

If his parents REALLY cared about his well-being, they'd have used a harness instead of a leash. That, and it's easier for a kid to get out from a regular leash.

The reaction was quite sweet but as someone who rescues dogs, please don't give an animal as a gift. If you want your child to have a pet give it to them during some other random time of the year. Teach them is a living animal that wants to come live with you not a present.

Please and thank you.

My youngest son wanted to get a second dog as a companion for our three year old boxer. He had his heart set on an English Bulldog, but I told him that we would not be getting another dog. He was obviously disappointed. My wife and oldest son brought home the dog when my youngest was at a friends house. When he walked in the door and saw the English Bulldog puppy in my wife's lap, he burst into tears of joy. It was the purest emotion I had ever seen.

I complete agree with not giving pets as gifts.

That being said, while the video doesn't have the context, my assumption is that the kid has wanted to get a dog for a long time, and they didn't actually get the dog yet for Xmas (which is why there isn't one in the video), but they wrapped up a couple of dog related items to indicate that they've decided getting a dog would be a good idea, and they then hopefully went to the local animal shelter during the next week to find that new canine family member.

I wish my son was this grateful for the xmas gifts he got. Little bastard just tore off the wrapping paper and then went right on to the next gift. Not even a simple "thanks". I try and try but he doesn't seem to have any manners.

We'll see how he reacts when he doesn't get anything for his second birthday this May.

My parents gave me dog related items for my 12th birthday. Didn't actually get a dog for another 2-3 months, spent the next 16 years with that dog.

/Didn't cry when I got the leash.
 
2013-01-02 01:32:16 PM
That was sweet. My son didn't so much as mutter a "thanks" when he got his presents and he got loaded with stuff this year. I'm not even sure he acknowledged any of the gift givers when he received them. And let me tell you, he just bounced from one to the next; he didn't linger long on any of them. The whole family went through a lot of trouble and expense to make this special for him and as far as he was concerned it was another day, soon to be forgotten.

Seven months old and he's already a selfish jerk.

Too bad the parents are so self-involved that instead of keeping a private moment 'private' they feel the need to share it with the world.

This kid is gonna be ridiculed/bullied for YEARS and the farking parents know this but put their egos ahead of the kid's social and emotional development.

Funny this did not make think of dogs or presents, just how all those parents in Newtown managed to get through Christmas, and not being able to give anything.

Probably plenty of presents in a lot of closets over there (20 mins from my place).

Yeah, say whatever you want about dogs, dogs not as presents, blah blah.

Just hug your kid, be glad you spent the holidays with him/her/it.

And remember, when it's the time they get their drivers license it all about the airbags...

You are right. A wonderful surprise like that is sure to scar him for life. I better lock up the guns before it is too late.

Sometimes, families have members that are millions thousands of miles away.   They sometimes don't think youtube videos will be found by some basement dweller and posted for all to mock, instead, they're showing a family member who couldn't be their how the child responded because they couldn't be there and emailing the video didn't work.

Not to threadjack, but what happened to the prank gifts this year? Where's the video of some kid opening what he thinks will be a PS2, only to discover an empty box while the dad laughs hysterically.

Cruel yes, but a staple of the the Fark video tab every holiday season.

I've always had rescue dogs. It just seems like they know they're being given a chance, though that could just be sentimentality on my part.

That would've been awesome if after about 2 minutes of that the dad said something like "I'm glad you like your leash. If you can handle it responsibly, maybe next year we'll think about getting a puppy for it."
 
2013-01-02 10:00:29 PM
BOR-ing!
 
2013-01-02 10:48:18 PM
Unbelievable! I know this kid and the family and I was there for this heartwarming display of emotion! They live in Suwanee, Georgia.

Hate to poop on things but the kid is severely autistic (nothing wrong with that) and those collars were for stuffed animals in his bedroom. There is no new puppy.

Merry Christmas or something
 
2013-01-02 10:58:32 PM
What did the kid get? I couldn't really make it out from this crappy video, but it looked like a red dildo to me.
 
2013-01-02 11:26:41 PM
Obviously he got a poodle.
 
2013-01-03 01:01:27 AM
Ok, I'm crying now.

Maybe it's because I lost both my dad and step-dad to early deaths (fark you skin cancer and heart disease!), but mostly because this is a kid who chose to show his appreciation for the perfect gift by hugging his parent. So sweet.
