Girl Whose Beloved Dog Passed Away Surprised With Cuddle Pillow
A girl cried happy tears when she opened a gift from her family to find a memory pillow of her late dog. As soon as Kennedy Cole, aged nine, realized the pillow featured her beloved pooch, Bentley, a Yorkie-poodle mix, she immediately welled up before bawling tears of joy, tightly hugging the pillow. Bentley had always been Kennedy's "little buddy," her parents said, and after he passed in March 2022, the months that followed were extremely tough for the youngster. Ahead of Christmas, dad Ryan, 42, and mom Kelsi, 36, from Colorado Springs, Colorado, decided they wanted to get Kennedy a gift to remember Bentley, and so they settled on a pillow she could cuddle. As she opened the gift on December 25, Kennedy's parents, grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousins watched on, while Kelsi captured the moment on video. Ryan later shared the wholesome clip on social media, where it received millions of views and many loving comments. Kennedy now sleeps with the pillow in her bed every night, Ryan said, and she has taken it to show and tell at school.
