As anyone who has ever loved a dog knows, while our furry friends may be animals, they can truly become family. For a boy named Lennox, it wasn’t even his own dog that became family, it was a neighbor’s… a sweet dog named Bogart.
Lennox’s family has a dog of their own, who Lennox loves, but the 11-year-old boy has always insisted that Bogart is his “best friend.” So when Bogart’s musician owner decided to send Bogart to California while she was on tour, Lennox was crushed.
When Bogart left with his mom, Lennox and his family had no idea how long the beloved dog would be away. What they thought would only be a couple of months turned into a year. Then, one day, Bogart came home.
Lennox’s mom, Ellen Tift Goebel, filmed the moment Lennox and Bogart reunited and posted the tear-worthy reunion on Facebook saying,
A year ago our neighbor had to take her dog to live in another state while she traveled and my son stood in her yard and cried as they drove away. We didn’t think the dog would be gone for so long but my son has prayed for his beloved canine friend every single night since he left.
Today we got the wonderful surprise that Bogart is back. I was able to get some video and you can tell they love each other.
Neither Lennox nor Bogart had any idea they were about to see each other again!
