We had to put our 14 year-old golden retriever down last week. It was very emotional especially watching my son and daughter who are now in their
20's who grew up with Ginger and had such a close bond with her. Toward the end of her life with us, we fed her people food. She no longer would eat
her dog food, so we made the last of her days as comfortable and satisfying as we could. My wife would make pancakes for her in the morning. Ginger
would bark at her because she couldn't wait to get her morning treat. (My wife and daughter now occasionally smells the scent of pancakes, a possible
sign that Ginger is ok).
Well since I was thinking about her I was looking at some videos on You Tube of golden retrievers and stumbled upon these soldier reunions with their
dogs. If you don't think dogs can love or have any emotional connection to people, watch these videos. They brought a smile and tear to my eye.

Gosh I love these videos! I spend tons of time watching them on youtube. And the people homecomings too. They always yank the tears right out of me.
It's amazing how excited and happy the dogs are to see their owners. The first and second ones you posted were my favorites, with the golden
'crying' and the way that dog leapt out of the car so fast. Thanks for sharing!
