Military deployment is hard for the loved ones of the soldiers being deployed. IT is hard being away from your loved ones.
But ever wonder how harder it is for pets? They don’t have any idea and don’t understand deployment and why someone is not coming home.
Gabriel Carlos is a soldier who got deployed to South Korea. He never wanted to leave his wife, Charrette Padilla, nor his dog Benny. But he needs to do service for the country.
Benny was a wedding gift given to the couple. The small family has been moving place to place because of Gabriel’s job in the military.
Charrette and Benny were anxiously waiting for the return of Gabriel. And after nine months, Gabriel finally came home.
The soldier was so happy to be with his lovely wife again. And he is excited to be reunited with his best canine buddy.
Gabriel and Charrette immediately got into the car after seeing each other. And while on the way home, all Gabriel was thinking and wanting was to see his dog.
“Sometimes people say he’s a dog version of myself! He brings so much joy to everyday life.”, Gabriel stated.
The feeling is mutual, as Benny is excited to meet again its dad. The dog is waiting patiently in the other room, ready to surprise Gabriel.
Even with no visual confirmation, Benny instantly knew that its dad is home. Benny’s tail started wagging as it waits patiently for its mom to open the door.
The moment the door opened, Benny sprinted to where Gabriel is. Benny freaked out and its tail keeps on wagging like crazy when he saw its dad!
Benny freaked out and showered its dad with kisses as if saying it missed him so much. The adorable dog kept on whining too and can’t control its happiness.
It seems like Benny’s happiness is cannot be contained. We cannot blame it though, it spent nine months away from its dad.
And now they are finally together!
