That’s exactly what happened to me when I recently watched a video of a man getting swarmed by a group of playful golden retriever puppies. The whole time, all I could think was, “Awww!”
The man and his wife recently welcomed the 10 furry children after one of their adult golden retrievers gave birth. And, at the time of the video, the pups were just seven weeks old and wilder than ever before.
But that didn’t stop the couple from wanting to release the rambunctious fur babies all at the same time from an enclosure. Before opening the gate to the enclosure, they made sure to turn on a camera for recording because they already knew it was about to get crazy.
As the wife opened the confinement, and the man called out to the puppies from the end of the driveway, a majority of them spirited their little hearts out towards the man. (A few were more interested in the wife but were still overjoyed with their newfound freedom.)
Next thing you know, the man is now back-down on the ground with puppies crawling all over him and nipping at him in a playful manner. So much love and attention from the goldie pups — a dream come true for most people!
Eventually, the puppies get distracted as they all tend to do. By the end of the video, the husband was no longer physically constrained to the floor, so he sat up to give some pets to the one puppy that was still wanting his attention. Too cute!
