"When Laila the pit bull was reunited with her owner, Second-Class Petty Officer of the U.S. Navy Christina Baez, the lovable pooch ran to her favorite human so fast that it`ll instantly warm your heart.
During her service in the navy, Baez was able to find a foster family for Laila through PACT for Animals. PACT specializes in finding temporary homes for animals that are left homeless because of deployment or unexpected hospitalizations."
When I come home after a long vacation, the first thing I do isn`t to check my mail, or inspect my house to make sure it wasn`t burglarized; I run to my pets to make sure they are alive and well.
I can`t imagine the plight of a soldier or sailor who has to leave his pets behind when he or she goes on deployment for an extended period of time.
But I can imagine the indescribable joy they feel when they are reunited with their furry friends. To say that Laila the pit bull was excited when she she was reunited with her sailor mom, is the understatement of the century.
