Memorial Day 2014

Let’s remember all the brave men and women who have served & died for our country. #Thankyou.

Let’s also take a look at these guys welcoming home their hoomins.

OK, so that’s a bad example. Let’s move on to Molly The Goldie, who greets her mom returning from Afghanistan.


This puppeh gets her BAROO on and lets the entire neighborhood know her hoomin is back.


This puppeh is named…ready? Emmitt Thunderpaws. Can’t say why. Nope.


Gracie turns into a wiggling SQUEAK MONSTER.


This German Shepherd is happy to see his hoomin….but you’re not gonna get that ball.


This puppeh just goes 100% FULL-TILT WACKO GONZO BANANAS.


Here’s one puppeh who loves her daddy for sure.


This U.S. Navy sailor gets plowed over by his three puppehs.
