This is what childhood elation looks like.
The girl in the video above is 8 years old and, for her upcoming birthday, her parents decided to get her the best surprise gift ever -- a puppy! While most kids might jump up and down and cheer upon receiving a furry present, she bursts into grateful tears instead.

We can't wait to see what great friends these two will become in the future.
