Recuperating Sebastian The Bulldog Gets Flowers And Cute Card From "Dad"

Like any self-respecting woman of a certain age, when Debbie Cardone saw a deliveryman walking up with a bouquet of flowers to her home, she was both happy to receive them and curious who they were from.

Given that Debbie's hubby is employed overseas in the Middle East, and it wasn’t her birthday or Valentine’s Day, she figured he'd sent her flowers just because. Debbie remarked that her hubby is usually pretty good about sending her flowers, so when she got a delivery at her home she didn't think much of it...until she took a look at the card.

While most women would be upset to discover that her husband had sent a bouquet of expensive multi-colored roses to a man named "Sebastian," Debbie wasn’t upset and immediately smiled because she knew exactly who the flowers were for. Sebastian is the oh so precious family bulldog who was resting up at home after recuperating from a surgery a week or so before.

Debbie put the roses down next to the dog for him to sniff, and Sebastian leaned over to check the flowers out. The amazingly cute dog also loved the clever card, which read:

"Sebastian, Feel better you'll be back in the game very soon. Love Daddy"

As Debbie explained in an interview, the vet had told them that Sebastian had some serious problems with the knees in his two front legs just a couple of weeks ago.

The large, heavyset dog had to have surgery on both knees, and the recovery period was long and slow given the animal’s size and activity level. Debbie's thoughtful husband just thought that the dog might appreciate some flowers to help cheer him up.

According to Debbie, Sebastian did appreciate dad’s thoughtful gesture, but not quite as much as he appreciates the treats dad sent in a separate package.

Debbie was amused by her husband’s humorous little trick, and she posted pics of both the roses and the clever card on Facebook. Debbie’s daughter Lily, who is a student at the University of Florida, also put up the photos on Twitter.

Before long both posts went viral, with tens of thousands of other people sharing Sebastian's nonchalant reaction to the flowers and Debbie's good humor about her initial disappointment the roses weren’t for her.

That said, it turns out that the bouquet of roses from add was not the only flowers Sebastian received.

After the post went viral, over the next few days, six more bouquets of flowers showed up at Debbie's home addressed to Sebastian, including two gorgeous bouquets of white flowers arranged in the shape of a dog!

Debbie says that Sebastian is continuing to recuperate from his double knee surgery, and will begin physical therapy at the vet next week. With all the attention he’s getting, Sebastian is surely going to be ready to take long walks with Debbie again in no time.
