Pets are the forgotten children of war. Yes, it seems sill to say, but people who say animals do not have little souls, or emotions, or forget people after five seconds- those people are full of crap.
I openly wept at this video. The owner comes home from war and the dog is just CRYING with joy. In this dog's eyes, that is her mommy, her owner, her person. This is a beautiful example of why abusing animals is so wrong, why animals like this little guy only deserve love and affection.
THIS, friend, is unconditional love. THIS, friend, is happiness.
THIS people, is why the war needs to end. Yes, it's a dog not a human. But if a DOG misses their person that much, imagine what it's like for the children. Reflect on this video people, it rocks. And if it doesn't bring a smile to your face or some kind of emotion to you, get yoself checked.
