“He just can’t stop saying ‘shut up’ when he sees Paul, his older brother, finally home from Afghanistan. Then Paul calls my mom to ask what’s for dinner because he misses her home cooked meals, then walks in the door behind her! Happy, happy tears! :)”

U.S. Soldier, Home From Iraq, Welcomed Home by St. Bernard

September 11, 2012

“Our St. Bernard Jasmine, was overwhelmed when she saw her daddy for the first time in 1 year. While he was away in Iraq, she whined and searched for him everyday. If there was a noise outside the door, she would rush over to it, and wait excitedly for him to walk inside. But after a few minutes had passed, she would realize that he was not walking through that door, and she would walk away and continue to mope. This happened over and over, day after day. It just broke my heart to see her missing him as much as my self. But the day he returned to us was just nothing short of amazing. I got my initial greeting with him at the airport. So the dog got all the attention when he first arrived home. As you can see in the video, she very much needed that time for herself. I’m glad i got it on camera to share with you all. ENJOY!”
