Video: Faithful Dog Welcomes Home a Soldier
By David DiBenedetto
I’m not sure about you, but the best part of my day is coming home to my wonderful wife and my pup. And while Jenny is always happy to see me, it’s Pritch that just goes bonkers—her whole body wagging like a giant tail. You would think I’d been away for a week. If there’s anything better, I haven’t run into it yet.
So I can only imagine the profound welcome the soldier in the video below felt when his pup greeted him after he returned from Kandahar, Afganastan (September 2005).
This video (which has become a viral sensation on the Internet) says a lot about man’s best friend. And as we approach Thanksgiving, let me say this:
Thanks to the soldiers who defend our liberties everyday. You provide us with freedoms many just dream of. And thanks to the dogs. Whether we come home from serving our country or from flipping burgers at a fast food joint, you are always happy to see us.
Enjoy the video. And thank a soldier.
