Pooch Freaks Out After Seeing Soldier 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 but his dog Simba just couldn`t stop jumping and kissing his dad.

Paul missed his pooch so much that he regularly chatted with Simba via Skype while he was deployed.

Simba missed Paul just as much as we can see in their joyful reunion, Simba just couldn`t stop jumping and kissing her BFF.

There is nothing disingenuous about dogs, if a canine doesn`t like you he will make his displease clear by growling, but if he loves you he will jump all over you as soon as he sees you. Dogs are inherently peaceful and loving creatures, the only ones they don`t like are bad guys like burglars who trespass on their turf.

I hope this display of love between a soldier and his dog will motivate you to adopt a puppy from your local animal shelter.
