'This is the closest they'll get to grandchildren!' Elderly man shows house garden to daughter’s dog

This is the sweet moment a Michigan man showed his daughter's mini-labradoodle Lilly his garden.

The clip shows the 76-year-old father holding the 'grand-dog' like a baby and talking her through all the animals in the yard.

“Oh look! There’s a deer and look, there’s a baby fawn behind her!” He can be heard saying in the video.

“I’m the only child so this is their best bet at grandchildren right now!”
