This mam made a cardboard cut out of the family dog for her son to take to college

Best present ever.

FORGET GOOD FRYING pans, forget fleecy blankets – this is the ideal moving-away-to-college gift.

When Jake Ostrowski mentioned to his mother how much he would miss their dog Jesse after he leaves for university in autumn, she got an idea.

What’s the next best thing to a real dog? A cardboard cut out!

The present went viral after Jake tweeted a picture of it earlier this week – and people have been deeply inspired to create their own.

“It was probably the best gift I’ve ever received,” he told New York Magazine.

I’ve had tons of people quoting the tweet saying that they’re gonna do this now or telling their own moms to take note.
