For dogs having to part with their soldier mommy and daddy when he or she gets deployed can be heart wrenching. The time away can seem to last forever. Dogs may not have any conception of time, but they notice all the mornings they wake up and their best friend isn't there to let them outside, or take them for a walk. They know that their soldier isn't there to scratch them behind their ears or to snuggle up to them in bed.
Seeing a dog being reunited with their best friend after so long apart makes it evident how much a dog can miss and yearn for their human’s presence. Dog's wiggling butts and ecstatic jumping show how much compassion they have. Some dogs will cry out with emotion, just like a child does when his or her dad comes home from war.
Emma is a little girl with a severe birth defect. It’s hard for her to use her back legs. Emma and her dad were very close before he was deployed. He was gone for six months before returning. Typically when Emma’s mom comes in the door she just waits at the end of the hallway. It was a different story when Emma’s dad got home.
