This girl finally got a new puppy after winning a Twitter bet with her dad

BACK IN MARCH, Texas-based teen Clara really wanted a puppy – but her dad just wasn’t letting it happen.

So, she got creative.

Clara text her dad with a proposition

“i would highly appreciate some retweets”

And the retweets came. Oh, how they came.

It took over a month to hit the magical 100,000 – but over the weekend it did just that and her dad delivered on his promise.

Olly is now a new member of the family

Clara told Metro today that the momentum proved too persuasive for her dad:

At first, my dad kept saying that it was a joke and he tried to go back on the deal, but once the tweet gained momentum, it was too late and he knew he had to follow through.

The internet came through for Clara
