Retired Air Force Tsgt reunites with retired working dog...

&feature=youtu.be

It's 18 seconds that is sure to put a smile on your face.

Air Force Technical Sergeant David Simpson of Mulberry flew all the way to Germany to reunite with his four-legged partner, and the video of their reunion will touch your heart.

The two worked side by side for four years in Iraq, patrolling the streets and conducting security checks at military bases.

Sgt. Simpson retired last year, while Robby, his dog, continued in service. Now, Robby is retiring as well, so Simpson flew to halfway across the globe to adopt him.

Following this reunion, they're flying back to Florida to enjoy retirement together.

the dog was trying to stay 'on duty' until that leash was handed over......

7. I can't even imagine...

 

I'll fight humans all day but if you asked me to put one in our dog that had been through everything with us? Sickening...

Working dogs are amazing creatures and worth their weight in gold....
