Ellen Tift Goebel’s young son Lennox and their next-door neighbor’s dog Bogart became best friends.
So, when Bogart and his owner traveled for a year, Lennox missed Bogart a lot. Fast forward 12 months to April 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee,when Lennox comes home sees Bogart at the back of his yard.
Ellen writes, “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. They were both equally surprised to see each other. I was able to get some video, you can tell they love each other.”
It should be noted that Lennox and therefore the Goebel family do have a dog of their own! But it’s obvious from Lennox’s emotional tears and Bogart’s whimpers that these two share a special bond.
