Soldier returns home to surprise his German Shepherd

This is just a great video. The dog runs to play fetch and returns to find his soldier waiting for him. What a happy dog!

    I just looooove these videos. The big, tough German Shepard whimpering like a pup, walking around and around totally not knowing what to do with this happy surprise. 🙂

  • That just made me cry. But it made my night too. Thanks Scoop. I can’t get enough of our troops coming home to such love and affection!

    Thanks Scoop! I needed some “happy tears” today, and that certainly did the trick!

    What a wonderful way to end my week. Thanks for posting this! Dogs Rule.

    • Yeah they do, and so do our troops 😉

        Amen! When I dropped my sister at the San Antonio airport yesterday, there was a big deal with the WWII vets from here going to DC. I cried happy tears watching those old guys and one woman get off that bus to the welcoming committee, TSA and all military services greeted them with the flag ceremonies. Many were in wheelchairs but many walked right off that bus into the airport. We took a lot of pictures, but didn’t see the whole ceremony at the Southwest gate because we had to get passes from Southwest and the line was really long with passengers. Dad was getting tired, so we left. I’d have loved to have seen the whole thing.

    I’m very glad our soldier came home in one piece and that’s a happy dog.

    On the other hand, that’s just a normal ‘hello’ from a cat!

    • tvlgds

      Not mine. They glare and play hard to get when I go anywhere because I’m not here to cater to their every whim.

  • tinker_thinker

    Love it…my dog carries on like that when I’ve been gone a few hours. Can’t imagine what he’d do if I was gone a year.

    This brought tears to my eyes.

  • tvlgds

    I love animal stories. He wasn’t about to give up the ball, though! 🙂

    • Conservative_Hippie

      LOL, my pit bull’s the same with his Kong Ball! Man, he loves those things!

  • badbadlibs

    I’ll know how that great dog feels the day BO is out of office and every liberal demoncrat goes with him….

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Yep, I’ll be wagging my tail also! I may even howl with delight!

      • badbadlibs

        I’ll join you! 🙂

    …and their needs are so simple…your love.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    A well deserved welcome back! Thank You America’s Finest!

  • Oh what a love story! I feel so sorry for pets when their mommies & daddies have to leave like that–they don’t know what the heck is happening. When my grandfather died, his dog took off looking for him. My grandmother found that dog two counties over. After that, he sat by his daddy’s chair for the longest time waiting for him to return. So pitiful.
    God gave us dominion over all the animals but sometimes I think it’s the other way around. 😉

    simply outstanding!

  • Colonel Neville

    Well, I’ll be doggone…The marine was and now he’s back! Happy dog! Sweet dog! Great vid, Scoop. Neville.
