8-Year-Old's Joyful Meltdown Makes Us Want To Give A Puppy To Every Kid In The World

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.

During her sobs of joy and cries of "it's a dog!" the puppy just wags his tail, happy to be in the arms of his new human.

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