No matter if it's a grandchild or a fur baby, some parents just know how to turn on the nurturing switch when it comes to their kids' offspring.
As we grow older, the time we spend with our parents can see all-time lows as we navigate our own adult lives, but while we may not call or visit as much as we might like, that makes moments like this one that much more special.
When Meghan Specksgoor had to make an impromptu trip to NYC on short notice, she struggled to find someone to take care of her 4-year-old dog, Chance. But thankfully, Specksgoor's dad stepped in to save the day and quickly became the grand parenting MVP.
Grandpa Specksgoor and Chance are quite attached to one another, so it came as a surprise when Meghan began receiving a series of text messages from her father.
But at second glance the text messages were from one proud grandpa spoiling his grandpup and giving mom constant updates in the "voice" of Chance.
It's clear to see how much Chance loved spending time with his grandfather as the two went to the park, stopped for a quick treat, and went on countless other adventures.
Taking to Twitter, Specksgoor wrote, "My dad is babysitting Chance this weekend, someone please get this man a grandchild."
And after this dog-sitting grandpa and his antics were posted online, the Internet soon embraced these two with open arms.
My favorite part is that the dog gets happier with each picture— Carter Henry (@CarterNovaX) December 26, 2017
Praise for this doggy grandpa went through the roof.
@dannyfisch Why is this the most adorable thing that I have ever seen.— Rachel Valentine (@rachelvalentine) December 26, 2017
People couldn't get enough of the cuteness overload that saw generations coming together to spend time with one another, and honestly, neither could we.
