Mark Pilgrim surprised his family with three special visitors over the weekend.

The South African radio personality, who is currently undergoing treatment for stage 4 lung cancer, and his daughters Tayla-Jean and Alyssa spent time with three "highly trained Retriever therapy dogs" from Golden Rescue SA

On Sunday, Pilgrim shared photos of the dogs running and swimming in his backyard. 

"Surprise visit for the girls from Golden Rescue SA! Thanks for bringing 3 of your highly trained Retriever therapy dogs for a bit of fun and interaction," he wrote in the caption.

Earlier this month, Pilgrim shared that he still has his "end goal in sight" amid his cancer treatment. Included in the end goal is a golden retriever of their own.

"It's a journey. It's not easy. Baby steps. Still have the end goal in sight where myself, Adrienne and the girls are walking on the beach with our future golden retriever."
