Heartwarming story

This is great. I think this will help a family and dog heal together.

Wonderful story. What a great way to honor the young fallen soldier!! The doggie will definitely have a wonderful rest of his life. Thanks for showing us this, texas.

I just thought it was great. I sat here and teared up and it just made my day to know that something good actually happened. You know, I bet their son is smiling down overjoyed about his companion and best friend going home to help his family through his being taken so early. The military was worried about aggression, but, you know, the dog probably smelled their son in the home or on them and knows who they are.
I just love it!!
