A short, simple video of dogs greeting a soldier returning from Iraq after 14 months. It’s making the rounds of the e-mail lists and blogs and I am shamelessly jumping on the bandwagon.
This is why I love dogs. Their joy is so profound, so pure, so simple. They have no pretense, they are not “cool,” they wouldn’t know how to hide their emotions if they tried.
And they are so terribly willing to be happy, gloriously happy.
You cannot watch and not be envious of what they must be feeling at that moment.
