Dogs Go Nuts When Military Masters Return

How sweet!! I love how the big ole’ Great Dane just hugged his master. I agree with Abathar... it is heartwarming and a wonderful way to start our day!
Kleenex alert ping!
They also serve those who sit, lay, roll over, beg and wait.
MSNBC had a story about the contemptuous reaction cats had to their owners returning from war. < /s>
The first time I came home for Thanksgiving vacation from college my border collie went nuts too, even more than what I see here in this video. Each successive time I returned home, though, the greeting was progressively less effusive.
We were great buddies. We often would play a game of hide-and-seek where I was able to engineer a head-start and then he would excitedly hunt me down.
He was smart as a whip and learned many tricks. I sure do miss him.
Aww... Totally love these vids. My daughters and I spent a couple HOURS watching these videos on YouTube the other day. So heartwarming to see all the love there!
Videos like this make me miss my beautiful lab all the more... Such a special friendship between human and dog!
That was wonderful but not any different from when I come home from running errands. My dogs always act like I have just come back from a long long trip. :D
Thanks for the cute videos.
Ping for later
I love that dog!!
My dogs remember my kids when they venture home a couple of times a year, as soon as they walk in the door.
They are so excited to see them like they are when they see me of my Husband walk in. It’s amazing how they remember.
I want to add that I have a female cocker who can be very weary of new people or those she doesn’t recognize right away. She is protective and will sniff, bark and circle them before she walks away, but she always know my kids.
They grew up with her and they are still “hers” even though she sees them maybe 2-3 times a year.
Cute video! Thank you!
Excellent. Thanks for the post and ping.
Aw, what a good way to start the morning!
It reminds me of the video where the soldier surprises the kids and they start crying, but they don’t understand why...
Dogs are angels with fur. :)
Yes they are. I can’t imagine my life without my dogs in it, I have 2 now and one of them is really getting up there, we have been dreading this coming for a while now.
I needed this today. Thanks.
“Cute video, but I wonder if those dogs were just as excited when their owners returned from a trip to the store or even to pick up the newspaper on the porch.”
I get a hero’s welcome for about 5 minutes every night when I come home. When I returned from a week-long vacation, the dogs did not simmer down for 45 minutes!
Big lump in my throat.
GREAT video!! :)) Hope we don’t get the usual drop-ins whining about why the thread isn’t about humans, abortion, child abuse or chiding us that we love our animals too much and they shouldn’t have “rights”, blah blah blah.... Gets way old.
Thanks for the ping....sadly I’ve not seen able to open the video link...I though that might be due to heavy traffic. I await, patiently, kleenex ready. ;)
Mine see me 24/7 so I get 10 minutes of hysteria if I leave the room but *daddy* gets the “OMG! We thought we’d never see you again!” when he *finally* comes in from the shop.
One of these days, these mutts better figure out ~who~ feeds/waters/trains/nurses/lets them out & in....LOL
The best welcome home I ever got from was the Wonder Dobe back in 1981.
He’d seen the horse flatten me and the ambulance haul me away.
He howled for the 11 days I was in a coma and when I come home from the hospital, I went straight to his kennel and without thinking, turned him out.
He knocked me -flat- and almost killed me with welcome home licks, hugs and bounces.
He was making weird noises somewhere between “laughs” and “sobs”.
He got really over-protective of me after that and pitched a fit if he even *thought* I was going near the horses without him there to keep them at a safe distance.
Lord, how I loved that dog and apparently, he loved me.
Now I really need Kleenex.
They’re just jealous because they’ve never truly experienced it, themselves.
I had to use Internet Explorer to watch it.
Firefox’s latest “upgrade” wrecked the Flash Player plug-in.
You are SOOOO right, but it never ceases to be annoying to those who love animals that virtually EVERY thread dealing with pet welfare gets these whiners posting about anything and everything BUT the topic at hand!!
On another dog thread, I just got accused of “white liberal guilt” because I refuse to abuse or beat my dogs into “submission”.
It’s a madhouse.
LOL! All your stories sound very familiar, my dogs are my best friends. In fact I can do without my human friends but I can’t make it with out my pup friends. :)
You’ve just thrown out irresistible bait for the “animals are lesser beings” posse....;D
When I was a kid, my dogs [and horses] were my only playmates.
There weren’t any kids nearby and somehow, I don’t think I turned out the worse for it.
I’ve been described as having a “dog-loyal devotion” to my human friends.
Gee...wonder where I learned *that* from?
[and yes, if my friends are attacked, I race in and “bite” their attackers]....LOL
I’d say consider the source. Many resident trolls and/or ignorant knuckle-dragging Neanderthals frequenting these types of threads. Sad, but true. Ignorance is bliss.
