Dogs Can Talk: Shepherd meets his soldier after deployment
If you don't think pets learn to love their masters, watch this. As the master of a very intelligent Collie-Chow mix who never let her herd (my kids) out of her sight, I couldn't watch this without getting smoke in my eyes.
"Gin-Gin" died a few years ago of very old age.
When I got home from work every day, she was the one most happy to see me, and the one who told me I'd been gone entirely too long.
