Brace yourself, folks. This video is guaranteed to MELT YOUR STONY HEART.

For it shows a young lad by the name of Ethan - who's always wanted to own a dog - opening a present on Christmas day. And said present turns out to be a dog lead.

What's that? No, no. We just have something in our eye...

*composes self*

Anyway: if Ethan's parents want to get him a cat next Christmas, we'd like to point them in the direction of the first video in our slideshow below. They're even easier to wrap than dog leads!
