It’s been said that when a person joins the military, their whole family joins with them. It makes complete sense when you think about how the distance and uncertainty that comes with being in an overseas war zone can impact a soldier and everyone who loves them.
The reunion between the dog in this video and his hooman, a soldier recently returned from deployment, encapsulates the joy and relief that soldiers and their families feel when they finally make it home safely. Even if the dog doesn’t understand the whole military thing, he feels the longing and sadness just as strongly as any human does and is so incredibly thrilled to see his favorite person return safe and sound.
This video just goes to show how our dogs really become a part of our families. We can’t help but to smile while watching this amazing reunion and hope these two get to stay together for a good, long time!
