This is why I love my dog so much. No, I haven't been gone for a year on deployment. But every morning when I come home from work, there is Blutto waiting for daddy to come home. He gets so excited that I'm home, every time. He also watches me every night when I put on my uniform and acts like he will never see me again. My wife told me that some nights he just sleeps by the garage door just waiting for me to come home.
Dogs fucking rule. I love my kitties, don't get me wrong. But my dog is my best friend. These videos make me tear up every time. I love my dog.
