As a young Afghanistan soldier is enthusiastically welcomed home, one member of his family is overcome with emotion and excitement--his beloved pet dog. The heartwarming video of the soldier´s welcome from his deliriously happy pup has gone viral. The dog, called Jasmine, which looks like a black and tan Hovawart, can´t contain her excitement on seeing her owner who was in Afghanistan for a year. As the newly-returned soldier, known only as Josh enters a garage to greet the dog --her reaction is crazy. Howling and barking, Jasmine, bounds over to him, jumping wildly up onto his uniform, trying

I love these videos. People who think our pets don´t really love us - well, think again. It´s a great way to warm up a cold Monday morning.

I can understand that there are many people who don´t want to own a dog. But I will never understand that there are many people who don´t like dogs. I couldn´t marry someone who doesn´t like dogs.

Dogs are a lot of care and work but they reward their owners with so much love and companionship that I could not imagine life without a dog.

I get that treatment everyday when I get home from work! Dogs require attention. Unlike a cat, you cant take off for the weekend and leave the dog alone at home with extra food to fend for themselves. You cant just leave out extra food in the morning and come home late from work. If you own a dog, your social life and out of the house activities may very well suffer or revolve around your dog. And I wouldnt have it any other way. No one will love you more than your dog. And if that´s not the case, YOU are probably doing something wrong.

Welcome home soldier! And thank you for your service.

And yes, I love dogs too.

Dogs truly are amazing, love filled animals. If we greeted each otehr the way dogs greet us when we come home, we would find our lives far more enriched. Our little chihuahua is like this when we come back home from shopping, Dr. visits or eating out. He never lets us down. And, it is not simple animal instinct of rejoining the pack- it is true joy and love. When wife has to go to hospital for a few days, he goes into an absolute state of depression- won´t eat or play until she comes home again. Yes, it is true emotion and no one will ever convince me otherwise. God bless this soldier! And, if Heaven does not have dogs, too bad for heaven- it is missing tremendous joy.

We have four house dogs. I said I would never have one but now that we have four, I realize how wrong I was. Each of them has a different personality but each one is loving and happy to see us whenever we return. It is a lot of work to keep the house clean with these guys but it is worth it.

If spouses would greet each other like this, there would be fewer divorces. /s

Somehow, I don´t think Bo greets Stinky this way. Dogs sense those who hate them.

A has had his own cat for about three years now. She chose him, not the other way around. I know when A is about five minutes out because his cat walks to the door, sits and waits. No, he doesn´t come home at the same time every day--I do believe she hears his car several streets over.

When he opens the door she bounces all over the room, fluffy tail waving like a circus horse. Does the same thing when he gets up of a morning.

Choc horror: It might be Easter but the
world is running out of chocolate because
demand in China is outstripping cocoa
bean production and forcing prices up
Daily Mail [UK], by Emma Glanfield    Original Article

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
