Military Reunions with Man’s Best Friend, Do Our Furry Friends Have a Sense of Time?

DOG MILITARYOn Veterans Day we honor all of our military who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country. While they were away, they were missed by their family, friends and loved ones. Included in that group are their beloved pets.   Thousands of dogs and cats reunite with our vets everyday. How many times have you heard that dogs have no sense of time?  I believe that they do have some sense of time, maybe it’s not the same as ours. Their was a study done where  the researcher recorded the behavior of dogs left by their owners for 30 min, 2 hours and 4 hours, and found that if the dogs had been left alone for 2 or 4 hours they greeted their owners with more ‘intensity,’ and were more active and attentive, than when the duration of separation had only been 30 minutes. However, there was no statistical significance between the dogs behavior if left alone for 2 or 4 hours. So when you arrive home from the service after six months or a year, expect lots of jumping and big sloppy kisses from your furry friend. He really missed you!

Remember, your pets count!
