the whole thing, caught on tape!
After many more pictures and hugs later we finally made it home. And then the second most important reunion: Mr H! After unloading the car, Matt went to take off his uniform (in case the dogs were dirty). I think Harley knew something was up because he was making the weirdest whining noise I have ever heard. Plus he was barking and jumping at the door like a mad man. I have a feeling he heard or saw Matt and wanted to get inside to see him!! So we eventually let him in and boy was Harley excited. Much more than normal. I would say he definitely remembered Daddy and missed him a lot!!
You can hear the weird whine right in the beginning. Listen closely, it's not very loud.
We spent the rest of the morning hanging out at home doing nothing. I made us breakfast, we watched some House Hunters and then Matt went down for a nap. I eventually went to work and stared at my computer for 4 miserable hours before caving and going back home. I made us a delicious meatloaf for dinner, we watched a movie, then got in bed (with the pups too) and talked. One of my favorite things in the world. It was fabulous and it really felt like he never left. I am so happy to finally have him home. All feels right again.
