Talking I double-GSD dare you not to get misty-eyed!

This: Adorable moment retired soldier is reunited with his Iraq dog partner after he flew to Germany to adopt him a year after they were separated | Mail Online

A retired soldier flew thousands of miles to reunite with the intrepid German shepherd that served alongside him in Iraq and the touching footage has quickly gone viral.

Retired Air Force Sergeant David Simpson made a best friend in the form of military pooch Robbie as the two served together securing dangerous city streets in Iraq for four years.

But their beautiful relationship came to an abrupt halt a year ago when Simpson left the military and his canine comrade continued to serve.
