Separation anxiety is a well-known health problem that can arise for various reasons and have many negative consequences.
It is not a surprise that dogs are prone to this condition, as they have a tendency to strongly bond with their owner. So when, for any reason, they are separated from them, they will experience it very hard.
Yet, when the two are reunited, a dog can also feel so much happiness that he just can’t handle it. Below, you will best see what that actually looks like.
This Much Happiness Was Simply Too Much For The Pup
Rebecca Svetina loved her little Schnauzer very much and rarely separated from her. Of course, this led to Casey, as her dog was called, becoming very attached to her, and every separation was painful.
Unfortunately, life is not ideal and sometimes painful partings simply have to happen.
That was the case this time when Rebecca had to leave her home in Murrysville, Pennsylvania, go across the border, and leave her beloved dog with her family.
Although Casey was missing nothing, at the same time, she was missing everything because a dog’s whole world revolves around its owner.
To make matters worse, Rebecca had been gone for a full 2 years, which is about 14 dog years.
Nevertheless, those painful years somehow passed and Rebecca was home again and ready to see her best friend after such a long time. She probably couldn’t even imagine what a moment it would be.
It was simply incredible and so full of emotions that it is very difficult to describe it in words. When Casey saw Rebecca, she immediately ran into her arms so hard that she almost knocked her over.
She couldn’t calm down at all, and she just jumped on her and howled so much that it looked like she was crying with happiness.
After a few moments, Casey was so overcome with emotion that she momentarily lost consciousness. However, she quickly got up and continued to greet her favorite person whom she had not seen for so long.
None of those present, and of course, not even Rebecca, herself, could remain immune to this, and at least one tear of joy ran down everyone’s face.
Fortunately, one of the attendees was filming all of this so that the whole world could see what dog love really means.
Although It Divided The Internet, Everyone Was Enthralled By The Scene
The scene that took place in the back yard of Rebecca’s house in Murrysville exploded on the Internet.
The video she published on her YouTube channel quickly reached millions of views and became the subject of numerous well-known media outlets.
In turn, the news was published by a number of popular media houses, including ABC News, Times Of India, Independent, DailyMail, and many others.
Thus, this touching moment of reunion reached the eyes of a large number of the public, not only in the USA, but also around the world. Opinions were divided. Some felt that this was not normal behavior for a dog.
“That looked more like a seizure to me,”. “My dog did that.. and never got up,” writes one person.
“I felt bad laughing but watching that, you can’t help but laugh,” said Caryn Charlie Liles, trainer and owner at Whatta Pup!, in Toronto, of the viral video, as The Globe And Mail reported.
However, most others paid no attention, but agreed that this was one of the most emotional and touching encounters between a dog and his best human friend that they had ever witnessed.
A later veterinary examination showed that the state of health of this Schnauzer was perfect. This ultimately proved that it was just pure emotion that was so strong that at one point, Casey could no longer carry it on her shoulders.
It was pure love for her hooman.
