Owner Andy, of course, is just as happy as Gracie. In the film, he tells his pet, “I missed you so bad honey. I’m so sorry I went away.” Meanwhile, Andy’s wife, Jen, was also getting quite emotional as she filmed this moment. She is heard on the video stating, “Aww, you’re going to make me cry.”
Due to the video’s amazing and unforeseen popularity, Andy decided to monetize the phenomenon – but all for a good cause. Very cleverly, Andy linked the video to Google Adsense, which means every time someone clicks on the clip he gets some cash. But Andy is donating the advertising income to a local pet welfare charity, Alexandria Animal Shelter. This organization has a special place in the family’s heart, since it runs the facility that rescued their beloved Gracie.
