Puppy Love

Champ and Emerald

Did you see this photo and story in the Anchorage Daily News on Jan. 10? It was a relief that no one was injured in the fire, including the adorable boxer, Champ, in the photo above.

Channel 2 captured the moment that Champ reunited with his person, Emerald, on camera.  Start watching around the 40 second mark. So sweet.

I think that all dog owners know that moment of pure, unadulterated joy when your dog runs to you and leaps into your arms, just because you are you. I can only image the relief that Emerald must have felt when she saw Champ running toward her. I love the image ADN captured of them, reunited.

I’m a sap and like the videos of dogs greeting their owners when they return from long absences, like this one and this one.

Puppy love is such a gift.  And now I’m going to go cuddle with Grover.

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!
