When family members in the military go away on deployments for months at a time, it’s hard on both the soldier and their family.
But people forget that it could also take a toll on their pets, who aren’t able to understand where their human has gone.
U.S. Army E4 Specialist Troy Glendenning has been away in the Middle East for the last eight months, which means he’s been apart from his beloved dog, Posie.
Posie has missed her human since the moment he left, and has been impatiently waiting for him to return.
Posie had no idea her human was coming home, but when she goes outside, she has a feeling that something is up. She runs around outside in circles, barking, until she spots him.
Troy was unsure of how Posie would react, but her reaction was sweeter than Troy could have ever imagined.
Once Posie caught a glance of him, she couldn’t contain her excitement. She ran toward him and jumped up in his arms, wagging her tail a mile a minute and giving him kisses all over his face.
Troy and Posie bonded during COVID quarantine, and from the looks of their sweet reunion, it’s clear just how close they’ve become.
Both of them are beyond thrilled to be together again, and they will definitely be spending every minute together, making up for lost time.
