When A Puppy Is Finally Reunited With His Owner, He Cannot Contain His Excitement

When this tiny Schnauzer’s human was gone for a few days, he was lost. Then, she finally returned after the short trip…and, judging by this little pooch’s reaction, he thought she was gone for good!

This puppy is overwhelmed by so many good feels!

No human has ever been this happy about anything. :)

That’s why dogs are known as man’s best friend. It doesn’t matter how long the absence is, they are always thrilled to be reunited with their humans!

An Elderly Man With Alzheimer’s Went Missing… But He Wasn’t Lost. Wait Til You See Where He Was.

Alzheimer’s disease is a terrible condition that steals away loved ones from us by destroying their minds. Over the years, they begin to forget who they are and who is around them. Although the mind may forget, the heart never does, and this touching story proves just that. Three years ago, Melvyn Amrine was diagnosed with the disease. Ever since then, he has faded away and his wife Doris lovingly took care of him. They had been married for 60 years. When he suddenly went missing, Doris was in a panic.

Melvyn went missing before Mother’s Day.

Daily Mail

His loving wife was frantic to find him. He had Alzheimer’s disease and could get himself hurt or lost.

Daily Mail

Luckily, cops finally located him. When he returned home, he had a big bouquet of roses for his wife.

Daily Mail

Melvyn was trying to buy her flowers, so the two officers helped him complete his task.

Daily Mail

(H/T Daily Mail) Every year since the birth of their first child, Melvyn had bought his wife a large bouquet of flowers. In a moment of clarity, he realized what day it was going to be soon and went out to bring them home to her. Even though he cannot remember when he proposed to Doris or how, he knows that he loves her very much and wanted to show her that (even if he needed some help). This is the kind of story that breaks your heart – and warms it – all at once. Share it.
