It takes more than you’d think to get the Internet to cry in unison with not a negative comment in sight, but Twitter user Jess Amante has managed to do just that. On March 6, Jess tweeted photos of her 90-year-old grandpa with his newly adopted dog, Penny.
My grandpa just got a new dog and had his caregiver take pictures of him to send to me pic.twitter.com/qVwxgNmM7v

Needless to say, people are experiencing a whirlwind of emotions.
We can’t tell whether it’s the pup, Grandpa’s on-point style, or the adorable pair themselves, but another Twitter-er (Tweeter?) big.Earl has resorted to typing in caps, which we all know means business.

Others are unable to stop crying—the cuteness level is just THAT high. We’re having trouble keeping the eyes in this house dry, too.
@JessAmante4 omg no this is so cute

Grandpa Amante is a simple man. He just wanted a little dog to take on walks and keep him company in his assisted living home. Well, now he has Penny… and over 80,000 people cheering him on. And sobbing.
Jess’s mom even shared some photos of the duo on Facebook. Our hearts are so warmed they’re about to melt.
Oh, and don’t forget the photographic evidence of people’s teary demise. This girl was reduced to two mascara trails. There is zero shame on that face. We feel you, girl.

Grandpa and Penny are doing just fine (we’re sure they’ve heard of their Internet fame by now). If Mr. Amante decides to react on Twitter, I think we’re all going to lose it.
