The box is opened but instead of a watch Daniel finds a brown dog collar inside which leaves him confused.
Unsure why he has been given a dog collar, Daniel stands up to get an explanation from Ashley.
His wife enters the room holding an adorable German shepherd puppy, Monty.
Overwhelmed at the sight of his dream dog in Ashley’s arm Daniel starts crying and holds his hands up to his face.
He sits back down and reaches out to take Monty from Ashley.

Speaking at the surprise gift she gave Daniel, Ashley said: ‘I was so nervous when we got home with Monty.
‘Just knowing that Dan dreamt of having a dog, to make our house a home, I just wanted the surprise to be perfect.
‘When I came down the hall and saw Dan’s face, I burst into tears.
‘Seeing his reaction made me feel so whole – just knowing that he was so happy – this was all he ever wanted, and I was so happy that I could do that for him and make him that happy.’

Ashley also posted on Facebook to celebrate Daniel’s birthday. In the post she said: ‘If you know Dan.. you know that there is one thing in the whole world he has wanted, for as long as I can remember.
‘After dealing with my wedding planning over the last 3 years, and giving me the wedding of my dreams…. thought my St. Bernard could wait… and he deserved something a little special for his birthday this year.’
Daniel’s last dog passed away five years ago.
