Get your tissues ready, because this is truly heart-warming.
Buddy 13-year-old. The golden retriever has spent all his time on earth with his best friend Hannah Foraker. After celebrating her 21 birthday, Hannah joined the army and attended basic training in Oklahoma. Hannah’s heart ached when she said goodbye to her furry friend and her horse Derby. When Hannah returned home for Christmas after three months of basic training, she was so pleased to see Buddy again. Buddy could hardly contain his joy and excitement when he saw Hannah again.
Hannah and Buddy have been together since Buddy was a puppy. Although Buddy is now very old, suffering from arthritis and almost deaf, there is nothing to stop him from welcoming Hannah with open arms. The moment he sees Hannah after three months of separation, he buries his head in her lap and starts crying with happiness. Hannah is naturally touched and starts to caress her dear friend.
“We opened the front door and he ran out to greet me and my family but then he turned around and came back to me,” Foraker said. As you can see, Buddy reminds us how loyal dogs are. They never forget their loved ones and give them “unconditional love”. That’s why we should take care of our best friends, because they are our friends and family.
