One of the strongest bonds that children will ever have aside from the one they share with their mother is the bond they share with dogs. These furry little creatures will be part of their childhood, and they will be there every time the child will need someone to love.
So it’s not uncommon for their little young heart to be broken to pieces whenever their dog dies or is taken away. For Ellen Tift Goebel’s son, his bond with this dog is quite unusual. He became best friends with their neighbor’s dog. Ellen shares that whenever her son has free time, he goes to the neighbor’s house to play with the pup.
Neighbor Hod To Move
However, their neighbor had to move to another state for work, and unfortunately, that meant the dog would have to go away, too. The news broke the heart of Ellen’s son. When the day came for them to move, her son was at their neighbor’s yard, waving goodbye to his best friend as they drove away.
The boy couldn’t stop crying after they left. Ellen shared that her son had no idea how long the dog would be away for. But every night, he kept on praying for their neighbor to come back home along with his furry best friend. Little did he know that his prayers weren’t falling on deaf ears.
After a couple of years, the neighbor and the dog came back! But Ellen’s son did not know about it at first. They arranged for a surprise reunion for the two. Everyone knew how much they meant to each other, and one look at the video below would make you understand, too.
When the boy saw the pup, he couldn’t hold back his tears. He gave the doggo a big hug, and the pup was also whimpering when he saw the boy. Ellen shared that her son has his own dog at home. However, the relationship his son has with their neighbor’s dog is special. See the emotional reunion below.
A year ago our neighbor had to take her dog to live in another state while she traveled and my son stood in her yard and cried as they drove away. We didn't think the dog would be gone for so long but my son has prayed for his beloved canine friend every single night since he left. Today we got the wonderful surprise that Bogart is back. I was able to get some video and you can tell they love each other. 👦💛🐶😭 p.s. He does have a dog of his own. ;-)http://youtu.be/BJtVy8qTCcMTo use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email email@example.com
