A Hero's Welcome...

I received this from a friend today and had to share it with all of you.

It's the heartwarming video of a soldier's reunion with his dogs after 14 months in Iraq. (I have never seen a dog wag his tail/butt so fast as that black & white dog in my whole life!!) Grab the Kleenex and enjoy!




A huge thank you to everyone in the military, and their families, for all the sacrifices you make for all of us! ... Donna

Aw, how sweet. It's amazing how our dogs can love us so unconditionally. Of course it just shows, that it's not just the family that misses their soldier, but the loyal pet as well.
I had to go hug my dogs...all three of them :0)

Oh my goodness, I checked back on your June post - it is the same bed!!! Great minds...you know what they say. I hope your kitty likes it as much as Scout seems to.

Have a great day!
