Happy tears can be ignited by so much these days, thanks to the abundance of extreme cuteness on the Internet.

And even something as simple as seeing an elderly man happily snuggling with his new dog can stir up all the feels, apparently. Because after Twitter user @JessAmante4 posted photos of her grandpa and his tiny new dog, the social media platform erupted in emotional support and retweets.

The post has already received more than 80,000 likes and 40,000 retweets, and shows no signs of slowing down.

Several Twitter users replied to the photos with selfies of themselves crying over how cute Jess’ grandfather is.

Campaigning has begun by Jess — and supported by her followers — to get her grandfather and his dog on “Ellen.” Her Twitter bio now simply reads, “Ya my grandpa is famous.”

The best part about this whole adorable spectacle is the simple beauty behind the massive attention it has received. This man has a new dog to care for, a new friend to hang out with, a new devoted companion to love and be loved by, and he is utterly thrilled.

That’s what it means to be a dog owner. And it’s a wonderful, wonderful thing.
