We all know that dogs are loyal creatures. However, there are times when our dogs don’t even recognize us, especially if we’ve been away for a while. Your dog may even act cautiously when you try to get near them.
A soldier named Janna Berger became a little worried when her dog named Murphy failed to recognize her when she came home after a long absence. Janna needed to move to work in a different city for eight months. Because of the very nature of her work, she couldn’t Murphy along. This meant that Murphy wasn’t going to see her for a long time.
While Janna was away, she admitted that she missed Murphy more than her family. All she thought about was Murphy and she knew that her dog didn’t really understand why she was gone or if she was ever coming back. Eventually, Janna’s training period was over and was allowed to go back home.
Janna knew that Murphy missed her too because she found out through a friend that Murphy kept sleeping outside her room. However, when Janna finally came home, she didn’t get the welcome she expected from Murphy.
Murphy failed to recognize Janna and was even a little spooked. He was hesitant to go near Janna and even tried running away at one point. Janna admitted that she was a little heartbroken when she saw how Murphy reacted but she really couldn’t blame him since she was gone for eight months.
Janna took her hat off, which got Murphy curious, and he slowly started to recognize her. Eventually, Murphy lets out a bark and slowly approached Janna. When he was near her, Murphy sniffed Janna and instantly recognized his mom.
Murphy went from feeling fearful and suspicious to joyful and excited. His tail was wagging so fast and also started jumping up to Janna to give her cuddles and puppy kisses. He also started yelping and couldn’t stop jumping with joy.
Janna was thrilled by how Murphy reacted. Here’s a video featuring Murphy’s heartwarming reaction when he finally recognized his mom.
