When soldiers are stationed over in a foreign country, they can leave a lot of loved ones behind, and a few of those include their beloved pets. They worry that they won’t be remembered while they’re gone, but it has been proven again and again that dogs have excellent memories.
After three months of being away at boot camp, this unnamed soldier returns home, and who’s waiting for her other than her best friend, Buddy. Buddy’s thirteen years old, and although he’s suffering from arthritis and has lost nearly all of his hearing, he couldn’t be happier in seeing his friend again. He whines and cries and flops over into her lap, ready to cover her with kisses.
