Children -- even dogs -- miss their fathers when they are away from home for a long time. When the children are young, sometimes they act a little shy when Dad returns -- but not this four-legged kid!
The dog that was left behind may not recognize the uniform his owner is wearing -- and of course he doesn't know where his dad went or why he was gone. But this pup sure knows how to show his elation that his human is finally home again! Watch the video below.
That first moment when the fur budy realizes that his beloved human is finally home is a tear-jerker. Fido is ecstatic and just can't make his paws go fast enough to get to Dad. Darn that slippery floor!
As it should be, Dad gets down on his knees to give Fido the hug he's missed all that time his human was deployed. His excited yips and whines express the heart of this obviously loved dog.
It's hard to tell who is more excited, Dad or the pup. But one thing's for sure: This is a no-holds-barred encounter that will long be remembered. Every soldier should be greeted with such enthusiasm and love!
Even when Dad finally gets to sit down, Fido isn't through expressing his affection. He continues to "sing" his welcome, and Dad's just as happy as the dog is. Watch the video below to see this moment in action. When was the last time you were greeted with this much love?
