But while most people are understanding of their loved one’s predicament, some groups can’t understand why their relationships must suffer for the sake of war. A soldier’s pets, for example, do not have the ability to comprehend the importance of their owner’s job.
Dogs, cats and all manner of fury critters instead have to wonder where their best friend has gone. It’s not unreasonable to believe that many of them instinctively feel abandoned. As a result, they may start to put their old life with the owner behind them.
This was the predicament that one soldier experienced in 2017. He’d been deployed away from home for seven long months. And as a result he was unsure if his two beloved dogs would even remember him when he returned.
