Our servicemen and women are making huge sacrifices for our country. Getting back home safely is a feat in itself, and we are so grateful for their service. It’s moments like this one that we can share with civilians to help them truly understand the sacrifices our servicemen and women make.
Brent couldn’t wait to get home to his family. Of course, his family was just as eager to see him too. What Brent didn’t know was that he would be greeted, first, by his biggest fan.
Brent’s parents wanted to hug him first, but they understood that seeing this wonderful gal would completely transform his welcome home. Brent’s parents arranged for this with the airport. Let us just say Brent was ecstatic!
Brent was naturally exhausted and perhaps overwhelmed by his presence on American soil as he went off the plane and through the terminal with another soldier. However, it was not until he advanced a short distance that his entire manner altered.
He caught a sight of his parents close and, while his heart soared at their presence, he was instantly on his knees greeting someone very special. As if the two had been apart for an eternity, and for his dog, it very certainly seemed that way, she runs over him, unaware of who he is.
It just takes two sniffs before it all comes back to her. DAD! You’ve arrived! Brent’s parents had been watching his dog happily while he was away on duty, but no one could ever replace your “real human.” Brent’s little daughter leaps to her feet, tail wagging, to express how much she misses him.
She even speaks in the cutest little whimpers, as if to say, “It’s been a long time, Dad.” Thank God you’ve returned. Now swear to me that you will never leave again!”
His hug and his dog’s adoration are precisely why we will never tire of reunions, always like dogs, and always share stories like this one to give you all the feels. Don’t miss out on the feel-good moment that demonstrates the uniqueness of dog-human love!
Thank you, Brent, for your heroic service! Welcome home!
