Senior Dog Can’t Stand Up Anymore, But Watch When She Sees Her Soldier Back Home!

Time makes the heart grow fonder, it galvanises in us a need, a spark that mundanity has fizzled out. When geography and the calendar conspires to keep loved ones apart, all it ultimately accomplishes is to fasten that unbreakable, everlasting bond.

After a while, despite the harrowing passage of time and the torturous wait, the homecoming is nothing short of spectacular. There is nothing sweeter than watching a cherished loved one stumble into your embrace and know, without a shadow of a doubt, that the fire never ebbed.

She had been months away. Training to defend our freedom. Being disciplined by the U.S. Army. Honing her skills, hoping they would never be needed, yet preparing for the worst. Her beloved dog waiting anxiously for her back at home.

He is unable to stand up, unable to motivate his limbs, but in spite of these setbacks, he still manages to display the only thing this soldier truly appreciates: love. Go to the next page to see the rest of the story.

  1. That is so beautiful. To see the obvious love from this cherished family for the person he loves most in his doggy world

  2. God! I wouldn’t defend or fight to protect my countrymen – but for my dog and everyone else’s I would set the planet alight – or water it down – four leggeds are the only ones worth my willingness to give all for xxxxxxxx🐾🐾😂

    • My husband was US Army, combat, gunships. He risked HIS life everyday so you can have the freedom to choose to only care about dogs. I have a folded flag. That means he died for you and all of America.A nn

      • Thank you to you and your husband for your service. I’m so sorry he did not make it home to you and your family. His sacrifice is appreciated by myself and many others, I’m sure. Try not to pay attention to comments made by ignorant people. They are so not worth your energy. Focus on the good memories. Hope time heals your pain and that you are able to have a fantastic life. Some of us will never forget the people and their families that died making it possible to enjoy the freedom we have.

      • My sympathies for you, yours, and your husband. I’m a veteran, combat engineers, and I will tell you this. No one has died for my freedom since 1945. Many have died since, for the greed of corporations and the lust for power among the politicians and some of the military.

        • Agree Rich. It annoys me when people say that ‘our’ soldiers are fighting for their country etc….when in fact it’s for the greedy, power crazy corporations and politicians. These soldiers are nothing but cannon fodder, who are conned into fighting and killing innocent people to satisfy the hawks at the top. God help America if the evil warmonger…Clinton gets in!

          • CAZ, You may not know why ‘our’ soldiers are fighting for their country etc”…But they Do and Our Enemies do …

            Semper Fi

          • Cazanne: what annoys ME even more are worthless, pathetic people that sit behind their computers every day and criticize people who are brave enough to fight for our country. Power crazy corporations and scumbags may sit in the White House, but at least they are brave enough and loyal enough to fight for an ideal. Evil warmonger Clinton? You should be on your knees praying now because with the dirtbag that is in there we need all the help we can get.

      • May your brave husband rest in peace, and may you find comfort in people who understand that it is not only the soldier who serves, but his family, too, with the sacrifices they must endure. Condolences to you and yours.

      • Ann, I am so sorry for your loss and thank your husband for his sacrifice so that I may live in a country where even thoughtless, insensitive jerks like MargueriteH have freedom to do and say stupid things and love only four legged friends.

      • Dear Ann, I want to thank you for your husband’s service and the ultimate price he paid for our country and your sacrifice. I pray in time your heart and soul will heal in Jesus Name. Thank you is never enough but it is heart felt.

      • Thank you Ann for writing this. I wish I could thank your husband for his service and the ultimate sacrifice for all of us. My husband was in the Army for over 9 years. My heart is with yours.

      • Thank you for your husbands service and your sacrifice. My family has a long history of service and luckily most of them survived. I will never know what you are going through and neither will most of the country. Thank you hatdly seems enough.

      • Sorry for your loss but I was involved fighting the PIRA in the 1970’s with weapons ans PE bought with $ collected in the USA. I regard Blair and Bush as war criminals and got many people killed and disabled for the biggest lie since JFK. Give me a dog over political leasers any day

      • SO VERY SORRY TO HEAR THIS BAD NEWS ;I THINK THE GOVERMENT IS ALWAYS MOSTLY TO BALME FOR ALL THE LOST HEROS THAT DIED IN THE WAS IRAQ WHERE EVER ;AND THE CLINTON IT IS VERY SAD TO THINK WE HAVE SUCH A CORRUPT GOVERMANT ;YOU CAN NOT TUST THEM FOR NOTHING ;AND AS FOR ANIMALS I LOVE ALL DOGS MOSTLY BIG ONES ANIMALS ARE THE BEST MORE THEN HUMANS .SORRY THAT IS JUST HOW I FEEL ;YES I NO ALL THE MILITAY MEN WHO DIED FOR THIS COUNTRY AND WE STILL DON;T HAVE NO RESPECT THERE ARE SO MANY BASTARDS WHO DEATROY EVEN THE GRAVE SIGHTS IT IS JUST HORRIBLE .

      • Prayers for you and every soldier and veteran. My grandson is a medic and in the service. My father and his brother were career service. Our family has lost military members and it hurts. Because we love animals doesnt mean we dont support our military and grieve when one is killed to protect us.

      • Thank you and your husband. Both of you are true hero’s in my book. I went there and di make it home, but, many of my friends did not. I say you are as is your husband a hero; the wife of a military man serves with her life also; just in a different method. Both give all. Thank you for your husband’s service and the extension of my freedom. Retired USAF. God bless your husband, you and your family. Again, Thank you.

    • Good thing there are some that are prepared to defend and fight for you then or you would be unable to give all for your four legged pals. I too would do anything for my dogs but am always thankful for our service members, all my family are ex military.

    • Well why don’t you just go to another country with your pooch and see how much freedom you have !!
      Oh yea forgot to tell you, One Way Ticket on Plane!!!!!!!

  3. Dog’s arthritis can be help with acupuncture. It will make your dog run again. No matter what age! Good luck & wish you both more years of happiness! ( Acupuncture had helped my dog run & 20 year old cat walk again.)

  4. Thank you for sharing this with us. It did have me in tears. I love dogs so much, and watching this just go’s to prove one more time that these precious, innocent animals have feelings and so much love in their sweet little hearts for their humans. Thank you for risking your own life so that we can go on living our lives. I truly enjoyed this video, thank you again for sharing it with us. God bless you and all that continue to serve our nation. And God bless your precious, beautiful dog, I pray for many years that you both will have for each other, I pray for no pain for your dog. God bless you always and forever, and God bless us all!

  5. Hold that dog tight. He’ll be going home soon. His love is so strong for you. I know. I went thru this with my shepherd lab cross. J.D. would have been 18 years old in Nov. He went home in June 2012. I miss him so much. There isn’t a day goes by that he isn’t in my mind. Thankyou St. Frances for letting him stay with me that long. RIP J.D.

    • I feel your pain. I lost my CoCo Chanel May 3rd. I’m dying inside. She was and forever will be the best friend I could ever have. Everyone is telling me to get another dog, don’t get me wrong, I love all dogs, but I just can’t. She is irreplaceable. Missing you forever CoCo

  6. There’s a story,(Hindu maybe) a bout God making a great devide between man and animal. At the last moment dog joins man by his side and will always be there. This story tells of that bond.

  7. Definitely Kleenex inducing, cracked me right up, brought tears – that wonderful dog 13 years old & could barely stand. With the sight and touch of his master brought a new lease of life . I have no understanding of people who cruel to dogs – dogs have so much love & loyalty to give. My girl, a female Boxer named Laila is in her usual place – asleep on my bed beside me as I write. She is my 24/7 companion.

  8. Is this sweet dog still living? I can help. My doxie, who is 14, was down on her back legs, arthritis setting into her spine. That was last month. A visit to the vet and my herbs that I am knowledgeable of what helps arthritis and my doxie is able to get down our front step porch now and trots across the living room to the front door each morning. If the one who owns this dear dog wants to chat with me, contact me at: chappylwml@yahoo.com I know the herb that I use works, it straightened my arthritic fingers and stopped the cramping in my hands.

  9. The writer doesn’t totally grasp all of the finer points of English. *Bawl, not ball. Belated means late or tardy, but I don’t really think that’s what was meant. Perhaps absentee? Newly returned? Not totally sure. Still, it’s a wonderful testament to the love of a dog for her human.

    • Why in the world would you feel the need to comment on the finer points of English? Are you really serious? I think it’s you who does not grasp something.

  10. My 14 year old cocker spaniel waited day after day for her boy to return home. When he finally arrived, he laid down on the floor and she sniffed him from head to toe. He touched her and she burried her head in his neck. They loved for a very long time before she went to get a drink of water. She was blind and deaf but could smell him and know his touch. 3 days later she passed on. She waited for him to come home before she left us. I have pictures to remind me of their bond.

  11. It is said a dog is MANS’ best friend AND SO IT IS!! As children we had a GSD as our nanny and was so protective and loyal to the end.

  12. I care deeply for the dog in this story, but I care more for the family. Are you all right Gail? I s your family OK?

  13. Dogs a s well as husbands and fathers are all part of our families.Why shouldn’t all be mourned?I fail to understand why others can’t feel this way?

  14. I have just lost the love of my life. My beautiful girl who was my conpantion for 9 years, i will never forget her, she may have been only a dog to some people but she was part of our family & will be sadly missed. I will never forget her beautiful eyes they where like stars.
    She has been layed to rest in her beautiful garden where i can be near her every day…

  15. Ann, I am surprised at some of the comments you have received, but much of our culture has evolved away from appreciation of our military. Please know most of us know where we would be without our military. I was a helicopter pilot in Viet Nam and was called to rescue some wounded. The man’s leg was almost blown completely off and his fellow squad brought him to my bird and rolled him into the cabin…blood shot across the cabin from his severed leg. Then the squad returned to where they had gotten the man and tried to rescue his dog. It appeared the dog’s legs were broken and it was bleeding from the eyes and mouth. No one would or could touch the dog except the handler, and he was in my helicopter. The squad tried to get the dog on the stretcher but was having difficulty. We were told to leave the dog but the squad would have nothing to that, and they patted the stretcher time and time again as the dog crawled and slowly made it’s way onto the stretcher, then the squad CAREFULLY PICKED UP THE STRETCHER, CAREFULLY MADE THEIR WAY TO MY AIRCRAFT, AND GENTLY LAID THE DOG IN BESIDE HIS MASTER. The difference in how the medevacs were handled has always brought on a smile to me and it was one of those times I saw care and concern in an ugly war. So thank you for your husband’s contribution to our way of life. Unlike some of those that have commented on your family, most of us send our heartfelt condolences.

  16. I only watched and read the first two stories and found them both moving and heart warming. I have dogs but
    can only guess how hard the separation of soldier and beloved pet must be. I know I would find it difficult.
    But I have a request, please correct the written descriptions. The background stories are all messed up,
    for these two at least, calling the first dog, who is a Golden, he when it is a female. Calling the black dog Buddy, a Golden. Also the health of the dogs is mixed up. The actual Golden is the one who can’t walk. It harms the desired effect of the reunion stories.
    Thank you.

  17. My mom used to talk about how Smokey, the dog her family had when she was growing up, voluntarily loaded herself in the car to go to the train station with the rest of the family to pick up my then 18-year-old uncle when he returned from boot camp. This was in 1944, he had been drafted on his birthday, and after a short leave, he’d spend the rest of the war in France. Smokey had never liked car rides because the only place she ever went was the vet. But she heard her boy’s name, understood what was going on, and of course, she had to be a part of it.

  18. Beautiful story. A dog’s love is very pure with no judgement. So glad that this soldier could return home to be with her beloved companion. Also very grateful for the service of all American soldiers and their families.
