Woman Leaves Her Dog With Dad, Receives The Best Texts From Him

Not sure if your parents are ready for grandkids? Leave them with your dog! When Meghan Specksgoor had to visit New York City, she started looking for someone to take care of her 4-year-old dog, Chance. And is there a man, better for the job than your dad? After she went away, however, Meghan started receiving surprising messages from the grey babysitter.

“They usually get along great,” Meghan told Bored Panda. “Chance is allowed to do whatever he wants with my dad – like an actual grandchild – and is given all sorts of treats the whole time he’s with him.”

Before going further with the story, it’s worth mentioning that she met her four-legged buddy at the Richmond Animal League (RAL). “I walked into [there] with a friend of mine who was looking for a puppy. And walked out with a completed application for ‘Chap.’ ‘Chap’ was brought to RAL with a shattered jaw from someone shooting him. We had surgery done to get a plate put in his jaw and he has been perfect ever since. He’s been re-named after my favorite rapper “Chance the Rapper,” and I thought it was fitting since he has been given a second chance at life.”

Now, back to the internet’s delight. Luckily, Meghan decided to upload everything that Chance and her dad were up to to Twitter. Scroll down to check out the story that received over 150K likes on the social network and let us know in the comments if you’d be comfortable leaving your pup with this guy. Or staying with him yourself.
