No, Stop, It's Too Cute. Stop It Right Now.
— Ace

A dog had been separated from its owner for two full years.

The owner was away in Slovenia, but returned home to Pennsylvania, whereupon she saw her pooch.

Here's the little guy's reaction at the reunion.

Thanks to @rdbrewer4.

And open thread.

Corrected: I had a huge amount of stuff wrong at first. It's corrected now.

Incidentally, the YouTube commenters prove once again why they're called "YouTube Commenters:"

This is the second time I've seen this: the inane laughter is shocking. This dog is in acute distress and needed immediate help. The true story here is the careless - even narcissistic - reactions of the woman and the 80, 911 'thumbs up' so far. 

Yup, you called it dude.

6 My dog ran into the room whining when he heard that (with the cat trailing more slowly behind). Just have to remind myself not to play animal videos because it upsets mine too much.

17 On the subject of dog loyalty, we adopted a dog that had been foster-cared by my brother and his wife. It must have been a year or two after the adoption that my brother and his wife came for a visit. Penny could not have been more gracious and loving. Penny was a Pit-Bull. She was NOT loving and gracious to strangers.

48 Many Muslims consider dogs to be ritually unclean. Police in the UK have to put leather booties on sniffer dogs if they go into Muslim houses. If Muslim convicts in prison come into contact with canine saliva, they are apparently entitled to fresh clothing.

49 That squealing is a VERY common schnauzer trait. They do that when they get excited. New dogs walking by, mailmen, haven't seen a human friend in ages etc. We have four office dogs, all schnauzers and I've heard that exact sound from all of them. Including the fifth office schnauzer that passed away a few years back. The passing out thing is new though.

Posted by: IllTemperedCur at July 31, 2014 03:55 PM (8v9fw)

50 That made me cry.

Our Golden would do this, too (whine, not the fainting); as well as our son's Golden when he is away traveling. Of course sometimes he does this when we are out for a couple of hours and return and interrupt his nap.

The poor doggies think they will never see their humans again. This is why I get teary when I see the reunion of our great military with their dogs or family. This is a glimpse of heaven, y'all. xoxo

54 "40 I put a mirrored wall in a dining room for a Korean family. There was a touch latch panel on one end that was a door to a hidden kitchen. One guess what a Korean family was cooking in there. I turned them into the city." There's a trend/rumor/possible urban legend of Chinese people in Taiwan and mainland China making a delicacy out of aborted fetuses since there are so many and they can't account for all of them. There are some pretty horrifying pictures online that look real but I can't figure out if it is intentional trolling. Then I think "These people eat fish while they're still alive because their death throes are considered delicious. Is this really a stretch?"

73 well, i could take a page from the language rule book that my Latino neighbors use, and refer to all Central Americans as "cerrotes"... and they refer to illegals from Mexico as "mojados", but i anglicized the word for those who may not habla.

but basically, since i live in #Failifornia, and have been dealing with the results of unrestrained illegal immigration since the local libtards aided and abetted the inflow of illegals from El Salvador in the 80's, which is where MS-13 got it's start, i confess that i'm just a tad jaded.

however, since it's your house, and your rules, i'll just call them illegals from now on, because that's what they are. or invaders, since that w*rks too. no offense intended.

80 I got a little bit different vibe from the video, just because I once owned a dog with canine epilepsy. My dear Shay looked a lot like that (falling on her side) when she would go into one of her "episodes", which were usually about 5 minutes long and amounted to what would be a Grand Mal seizure in a person. And no, I don't think that's a factor with this schnauzer. I think it is pure joy. But damn, I miss that dog.

Posted by: Reggie Love at July 31, 2014 04:09 PM (xKIE3)

91 My dog freaked out for almost 15 minutes when I played the video -  screeching, jumping on and off the sofa and alternately attacking the laptop and cowering in fear from it.

Now, some 25 minutes later, he's whinging and burrowing under my laptop to locate the dog he's convinced I have hidden there. My other dog made a brief appearance when he heard the video, running into the room, barking furiously, lunging at the crazed dog 5-6 times before escaping to relative safety of the living room.

All in all, I'd have to say the sheer bedlam the video caused in my household outweighed its cuteness by a factor of 1,000. Sorry to sound like a You-Tube downer type, I'm sure everything will be back to normal by midnight.

109 oh this jack handey quote is all about the FSA vs Not FSA he whole town laughed at my great-grandfather, just because he worked hard and saved his money. True, working at the hardware store didn't pay much, but he felt it was better than what everybody else did, which was go up to the volcano and collect the gold nuggets it shot out every day. It turned out he was right. After forty years, the volcano petered out. Everybody left town, and the hardware store went broke. Finally he decided to collect gold nuggets too, but there weren't many left by then. Plus, he broke his leg and the doctor's bills were real high.

113 This reminds me of when I came back from Europe after 2 weeks. It was the middle of the night and I walked in and woke up my 15 yr old pom. He started panting, then shaking then literally cried. I let him sleep on my stomach all night and he cried and shook the whole time. Dogs are weird. I also found out after I got home that he had run away after I left and it took them 1 week to locate him.

151 True story, of a personal note. I hope you have time to read (after my slow typing, and before the ONT comes up.


Easter morning when I was 4 years old, there was a calico kitten on our porch when we came home from church. We had to keep it.

Six years later, we moved to another city (from CF to AK) 10 miles away. When I was sixteen, we took a family vacation. My oldest brother watched the cat for us. he still lived in CF. When we returned, the cat was gone. We never saw it after that.

A year later, my one older sister had just gotten married and was moving into her new home in CF, a mile away from my brother in CF. She saw a boy walking down her street carrying a cat. She thought the cat looked awfully familiar, so she went up to the boy and asked if that was his cat. He said no, it was just following him. So she said she thought she knew who the cat belonged to, and asked if she could have the cat. The boy had no problem with that.

She immediately called us and said she thought she had our cat. So we (me, mom and dad, and my younger sister) headed over right away. We took our dog with us. When we got there, the cat as in her fenced-in back yard. The dog ran up to her, they sniffed noses, the dog started wagging her tail and yipping, and the cat started rubbing against the dog. We knew then, for sure, that that was our long lost cat.

The cat had no problem finding its way around its "new" neighborhood. We never knew if someone had taken care of her, or if she just went feral. Anyway, she stayed with us until my younger sister got married, and she took the cat with her. (The dog had since died, 16yo). The cat spent the rest of her days with my younger sister, until it was 18yo.

196 tinfoil baby, I guess I moved to the right place. #winning If Boulder survives Captain Trips, it won't be because it's better than the other cities - it'll be because it's better at being hypocritical. This place tolerates panhandlers during the day because it ships them back to Denver at night. Some "homeless advocates" told us here up front that Boulder is cruel to teh hoboes.

And I still don't care. You have to transport the patient to the US via plane and then transport that person from the plane to the hospital. That's way too much exposure, way too much risk IMO.

They're not going to attack a pack of humans, even one human (me) who looks like he could at least pick up a rock and throw it (there are a lot of rocks in the Rockies). Cougars will get you if you've already broken a leg, or if you're *really* small and weak (read, female and small, or a child).

263 #234 Go there? Are you nuts, a guy could get infected with Ebola! (Or a host of a lot of other nasty shit.) The problem is this: There is a good chance already the disease is here. The reason why this strain of Ebola, and I emphasize that is it a strain, is because the incubation period in between 2 and 21 days. The shorter the incubation period, the more likely the disease will burn itself out. The longer the incubation period, the more likely the disease will spread. Captain Trips had an incubation period of about 2 days, but it was airborn. They still believe that this strain of Ebola is not airborn. But it also has a much longer incubation period than previous strains of Ebola. Even so, then no problem, as long as you maintain containment protocols and can track all possible vectors. You have to receive fluids from another infected to catch it. If it is airborn, it's already too late.

The reason why this strain of Ebola, and I emphasize that is it a strain, is because the incubation period in between 2 and 21 days. Good chance? Based on what, Herr Docktor?

292 MH...I was raised by German Short-hair Pointers and I guess my parents, but damn those were good dogs. I hear they fucked up the breed so bad that the dogs are nuts.

293 #281 You could be part of the 0.06% of the population that is naturally immune. I'd rather go quick.

295 I don't see why we can't fly CDC people to Africa to treat our people. The doc on TV said treatment is basically fluids and anti-fever meds.

I hate to even think of it, but this reeks of Obama. He is showing his "humility" by importing a third world disease, and hopefully to him killing a bunch of Americans in the process.

296 See???? And that's the other thing. This govt could fuck up a wet dream. We're gonna trust them with a damn ebola patient?

Hell. No.

They should put U.S. Patient Zero in the Lincoln Bedroom.  I mean, doesn't the White House have fantastic security and isolation?

 

 

They obviously had to sterilize it after the Clinton years.  They can do it, this once more.

298 I'm not a dog person, but this was cool. 

Cats show their affection too.  Years ago I had to put my part-Maine Coon in the pet hospital for diabetes -- for a week.  So he hardly saw me.

I visited him on Sunday.  They brought him out and put him on the padded exam table.  He took two steps and thunked his big red head against my ribs and left it there.  Clearly he was trying to say, "Oh, God.  Take me home.  I hate this place."

He lived another two years, and my girlfriend, who was at home with him during the day, said that each day, as it came time for me to arrive home, he would sit facing the door, clearly waiting for me.  He liked her fine; but I was His Human.
