With a home full of gorgeous dogs and fond memories of all the pets he had loved and lost, this father named Renato could be said to have everything he needed. So, when Renato’s birthday recently arrived, his family struggled to find a suitable present.
Caty Bernal Llanos, Renato’s daughter, told The Dodo, “We had no idea what to give him.”
Then, though, inspiration struck.
Renato’s family contemplated the one passion that has defined him throughout his life: his affection for animals.
Renato has had numerous cherished pets over the years, each saved from homelessness and mistreatment and given a permanent place in his house and heart.
Llanos stated, “For him, they are part of the family.” They are dear to him.
Renato’s family found a method for him to “wear his heart on his sleeve” by gifting him a shirt with the faces of all the creatures he has had the pleasure of loving.
Here is the exact moment Renato unwrapped the lovely gift:

Renato was moved to tears at seeing the cheerful faces of his previous and present pets grouped together on the tee he had been given. Renato’s family could not help but mirror his sentimental response after seeing it.
“At that time, I sobbed a lot,” stated Llanos. “It was a great sight to watch my father so pleased and delighted with his new shirt. My entire family was crying with joy!”
Obviously, no gift can compare to the love that still surrounds Renato.
However, he now possesses the proper attire to wear while basking in its midst.
Renato’s family had found the ideal present.
“We were considering giving him a unique gift that he would adore,” Llanos said. We were inspired by his deep affection for all animals.
