Dog Doesn’t Recognize Owner Until He Gives Him a Sniff

Shane Godfrey from Sanford, North Carolina lost fifty pounds after spending five weeks in the hospital due to complications from the flu. When Shane got home, his loyal canine companion, Willie, failed to recognize him until he finally got close enough to smell him.

“When you have lost so much weight that your dog has to smell you to realize who you are. And being gone 5 weeks doesn’t help but the reaction as soon as he recognizes the smell is priceless.”
