“It’s hard to leave any dog behind.
You can’t communicate with them and tell them you will back.
I leave her with either a family member or a friend that she has a relationship with.
When we see each other for the first time after I return, there is no calming her down.
She doesn’t even bark, she wiggles and licks my hands.
I can’t pet her right away, I just let her lick my hands and do her thing.
It’s the one time I let her lick me excessively.
It’s the best feeling to come home to her.
I reminds me just how much I mean to her and she means to me.”
