If you are having a bad day, take a moment to check out this video of a golden retriever meeting her mom for the first time. The puppy, Harper, was eleven weeks old when she was adopted. The video is a compilation of her emotional and heart warming reunion with her biological mother. It is absolutely touching that she still remembers the scent of her mother and greets her with overwhelming familiarity. She hung out with her and played with her like it was only yesterday they went their separate paths. After a long walk together, Harper returned to her car where her other siblings were waiting patiently for her, with the hope that she is going to visit her mom again very soon.
What a memorable day for one year old Harper! The music and the way the video cut back to her past when she was only a puppy was an added bonus and kind of made a nice narrative for the whole reunion.
