Well, I searched this. I am shipping in June and I am worried that my Dog (which is my best friend) will be ticked when I leave and come back. Anyone have experiences with a dogs reaction when you leave and come back after a few months, whether it was on deployment or to basic doesn't really matter. Did it take a while for him to get used to you again? Did he remember you? Can you bring your dog to family day? I know this question may seem kind of petty, but this little guy is probably my best and only friend.
