James Xuereb was overcome with emotion when his family surprised him with a puppy after the recent loss of his two beloved dogs, Nemo and Lucy. The Ontario father doted on the two dogs, who passed away from congestive heart failure and old age. He was devastated by their passing, which is why his daughters wanted to bring some happiness back into his life.
So they got him a Bichon Frise puppy they named Lumo – a combined name that honors both Nemo and Lucy.
Daughter Jaleen Xuereb caught her father’s emotional reaction on camera and shared it on Facebook, writing: “Bringing happiness back into my father’s life after the loss of our two beloved dogs Nemo & Lucy. Welcome to the family, Lumo.”
First, they give him a card, but he is so stunned that he can’t read it out loud. Needless to say, there were many tears – tears of joy – when Lumo is put in James’ welcoming arms. I have a strong feeling Lumo is going to be one very loved pup!
