Buddy is a 13-year-old Golden Retriever who spent all her life with her best friend Hannah Foraker. But when Hannah turned 21, she enlisted in the army and went off to basic training in Oklahoma.
Hannah’s heart ached as she left behind her best friends, including her horse, Derby, and Buddy. So when Hannah returned home for a Christmas break after 3 months, she couldn’t wait to see Buddy. And Buddy couldn’t wait to see her!
Hannah got Buddy when she was a puppy. Buddy is very old now and has arthritis and is mostly deaf. But that doesn’t stop her from giving Hannah the best welcome ever. The moment she spots Hannah, she buries her head in Hannah’s lap and begins to cry.
This is such a wonderful and heartwarming video. Have you ever seen such a reunion? We have seen many military and dog reunions over the years but this one definitely will give you a BIG squeeze to your heart. Dogs never ever forget and the moment these soldiers who are defending our freedom return home, their Best (Fur-Friends) are ready to greet them with open paws.
Some of the videos that we have watched and posted for our viewers have reminded us that dogs truly provide “unconditional love” in this world. It’s a reminder that we need to take good care of our best friends and there is really nothing more loyal in the world, than a dog.
The emotions Buddy must have felt seeing her best friend once again at this old age brought us to tears.
