Cool Memories ??

I am super excited to welcome my beloved Gavin back home next month!!! Gavin has been gone since Thanksgiving 2010!!!! I am so nervous he will not remember me!!!! What is the longest any of you have been seperated from your dogs and how was the reunion?? I have been seperated from horses for years and they always remembered me and would whinny with excitement when I called their names, but I've never been seperated from one of my dogs for so long! Gavin was in training in Germany than was with his breeder as a breeding dog, he now is coming home to me again to show as well as fulfill some breeding commitments, but mostly we're going to just pick up where we left off just enjoying ourselves and trail riding again !! I have to admit I'm nervous he won't remember me, we were so close and it killed me to send him, but it was something that I had to do at that point in my life.

I'm sure he will remember you! Fama and I were apart for a couple years, and she remembered me like it was just overnight. She tackled me when she saw me. I'm sure Julie would Skype with you if you asked

I'm glad you are going to be reunited!

Get ready for one heck of a reunion! You should get it on video when he arrives, to show people that have been questioning this lately. They do remember..

Waw 4 years, my uncle's dog was separated from him for 2 years and they remembered him, but not sure if he could remember you after 4 years! But if he had more fun with you he will totally remember you , but if he had more fun there then there is a small chance he could.

Show us a video of your reunion would be awesome to see

Hey--short story about my Dad's English setter, many many years ago (and if a setter can remember, a GSD certainly can!).

My Dad always had hunting dogs, and when he went into the army in 1941, he left his favorite dog, Dan, with my uncle, Dad's younger brother. All the while my Dad was fighting in WWII, my uncle was taking care of Dan and hunting with him. He was sure that when Dad returned, Dan would have forgotten him and would from then on be my uncle's dog.

Four years later, the first day my Dad was home happened to be the first day of pheasant season. He and my uncle went hunting with Dan. The first bird the dog flushed, my uncle shot and it fell. Dan ran to retrieve it, carried it back, and my uncle got a big grin on his face, and stooped down to take the bird. Dan trotted toward him, and as he got within a few feet of my uncle, he made a wide circle around him and went directly to my Dad and dropped the bird at his feet. My Dad still had his dog!

Susan

Awesome story Susan, Gavin was 18 months when he left, I'm excited but nervous as well, I'm wondering if I should jog in a tshirt than seal it in a Baggie and send it? I never wanted to visit him because I didn't want to be leaving him multiple times, I'm now sort of wishing I had

I was in Germany for a year separated from Bear in 1983. He remembered me. I would rather have had him with me, he could have helped with security at the remote launch facility.
