Dog Overjoyed at Seeing Army Dad for First Time in 7 Months: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Army Sergeant Paul DiPaolo`s family was very excited for him to return home following a seven-month deployment in Afghanistan. Yet, his dog, Simba, may have been the most excited.


The family`s five-year-old pitbull had been anxiously returning for his master to come home. They would even chat with each other via Skype while Paul was deployed."


Videos of soldiers being reunited with their families are a dime a dozen, but this video of a soldier being reunited with his pooch is priceless. This video dramatically illustrates the maxim that a dog is man`s best friend.

A girlfriend`s love will wax cold, your child will eventually leave you and barely remember you, but a pooch will love you unconditionally for the rest of his life.

A dog`s tail wagging in excitement at his master`s return is more emblematic of love than a wife`s kiss or a child`s hug.

Your future BFF is waiting for you at your local animal shelter.
