Hayden Baumunk wanted just one thing for his 12th birthday— to lie down and be surrounded by pugs. Pug lovers can totally relate, right? Hayden, who has autism, has been obsessed with pugs his whole life. His mom Cierra put a call out to the Sacremento Pug community and Pug Rescue of Sacramento on Facebook, and the turnout was spectacular.
Over 250 pugs came to Hayden’s party and he was overwhelmed with joy.
And then it got even better. A local pug lover who wished to remain anonymous gave Hayden a pug puppy of his very own for his birthday present. Hayden named the puppy Pumpkin on the spot, and the two fell in love instantly.
This photo of Hayden and his sister with their dogs just puts a smile in your heart.
