VIDEO: Brother, sister burst into happy tears over hamster surprise

Get ready. The moment one little girl surprised her brother with a pet hamster may just be the most endearing and adorable thing you’ll see….possibly ever. And while the newly viral video itself is great, the story behind it is even better.
