One of every pet owners' concerns is always their pet forgetting them when they go away for a long time. When you're a soldier, and the periods of time you spend away are very long, that fear gets amplified. 

We're used to seeing videos of dogs immediately recognizing their soldier owners when they get back from serving that leave us melting from joy. But in this video, for a long terrifying second, our heart almost plummets when we realize that the dog doesn't immediately recognize the soldier, only to be overwhelmed by a palpable feeling of relief when it does recognize her. 

It's a happy ending, and our hearts did indeed melt. The lesson learned from this video has been summed up perfectly by this one youtube commenter: "May take a min, but a best friend will never  forget."

A story that will pull at your heartstrings - historical context for this squee picture below.

"Accepting her fate as an orphan of war, 'Miss Hap' a two-week old Korean kitten chows down on canned milk, piped to her by medicine dropper with the help of Marine Sergeant Frank Praytor ... The Marine adopted the kitten after its mother was killed by a mortar barrage near Bunker Hill. The name, Miss Hap, Sergeant Praytor explained, was given to the kitten 'because she was born at the wrong place at the wrong time'." - Korea, ca 1953
