Elderly Dog Cries When Her Mom Finally Comes Home

“When I came home we let her outside and, at first, she didn’t realize I was home,” Foraker told ABC News. “Then, she did a double-take and came back to me. That’s when she started crying and whimpering. She was so excited.”

 

 

 

Army Private Hannah Foraker hadn’t ever really left home for a long period of time before until she went away to boot camp for three months.  When she returned, her elderly dog Buddy gave her quite a welcome.

“When I came home we let her outside and, at first, she didn’t realize I was home,” Foraker told ABC News.  “Then, she did a double-take and came back to me.  That’s when she started crying and whimpering.  She was so excited.”

Buddy became a bit of a shadow for the next two weeks while Foraker was home. She followed her everywhere she went, and seemed to show an energy that was reminiscent of her younger years!

Buddy is a senior dog, and she is suffering from hearing loss and arthritis.  However, Foraker and Buddy do get to keep in touch via Skype while she’s not home.

“I hope to see her again next time I’m home during Christmas,” she said. “She will be all right; she’s a fighter.”

    1. Please know there are some who have you in their thoughts, hearts and prayers. I had friends
      in military, and you lose touch; others I’ve seen and don’t know. Just stay strong and hold onto
      positive thoughts FOR them.. There are those, like me who are here to give you some comfort
      on days you can’t seem to make it or struggle. I thank those who serve because I am not one
      of the ones who are strong enough to do it. It takes a lot, and they sacrifice their very lives
      and don’t get the help, recognition and support they deserve. Just stay strong! OXOX for the families. Lansing, MI
