So I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: there’s only one genre of YouTube video guaranteed to make me choke up like a tween at the tail end of a Twilight marathon. And that’s the ‘Dog Freakin’ Loses It When Owner Comes Back From Serving Overseas’ genre. Otherwise, you can rest assured I’m all man, baby.
The latest in this line of tear-jerking videos comes to us from a lovely woman named Tami, whose son Beau has been away with his Marine unit since December 2011. And as you might expect, Beau’s faithful canine companion Callie has been pining away for him ever since. Fortunately for Callie, Beau made it back home this week, safe and sound. Fortunately for us, Tami opted to videotape their long-awaited reunion. If it doesn’t melt your heart, you may be clinically dead. In which case, you may wanna get that checked out.
