Buddy is a 13-year-old golden retriever who has spent its entire life with its best friend Hannah Foraker. However, when Hannah turned 21, she joined the army and went to basic training in Oklahoma. Hannah’s heart sank when she left her best friends, including the Derby horse and Buddy. Three months later, when Hannah returned home for the Christmas holidays, she couldn’t wait to see Buddy again. And Buddy couldn’t wait to see her!
Hannah has been holding Buddy since it was a puppy. Now Buddy is quite old, it has arthritis and, most importantly, it is almost deaf. But that doesn’t stop the dog from giving Hannah a warm welcome. As soon as dog sees Hannah, it puts its head on her lap and starts crying.
Over the years, we have witnessed many encounters with military dogs, but this is sure to touch your heart. Dogs never forget, and when these soldiers defending our freedom return home, their best (furry) friends are ready to welcome them with open arms.
Some of the videos that we watched and shared with our viewers reminded us that dogs really give “unconditional love” in this world. It’s a reminder that we have to take care of our best friends, and there really is nothing in the world more devoted than a dog. The excitement Buddy must have felt seeing its best friend at such an advanced age moved us to tears.
