PETALUMA, Calif., Oct. 28 (UPI) -- A California man surprised his dog by dressing up as a life-sized version of one of its favorite toys.
Ben Mesches shared video of his dog Jolene playing with her favorite Gumby toy, just before he entered the room in a Gumby costume.
"Jolene meets her favorite toy come to life," Mesches said.
Jolene immediately took notice of the life-sized Gumby, raising her head up from her toy as she approached Mesches and stood on her hind legs.
Mesches and Jolene then entered a loving embrace as the two fell to the floor while Jolene happily jumped about the room.
The elated pup continued to jump with excitement and chew on her new favorite toy as Mesches deemed the idea "the best possible use for my Gumby suit."
