Soldier Surprised with Homecoming Puppy
"We received two emails from a soldier finishing a tour in Afghanistan and his wife back here in the states wanting a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy. She asked us if we would tell the sergeant that all the puppies were spoken for so she could surprise him when he returned from the war. We agreed because we LOVE surprises! We hated to disappoint him at the time but we knew how happy he was going to be in the near future. After months of preparation and a wife that can keep a good secret this is the meeting between a cute 8 week old puppy and his deserving owner. Welcome home Chris! "
