A dog’s relationship with its owner is always strong and deep. Our furry buddies seem to be able to sense or comprehend our emotions and know how to make us feel better. In exchange, we treat them like family and provide them with the greatest possible life. We know that nothing can separate us from them because of that link.
And if they are away from us for longer than we would like, they still recognize us as if no time has passed. Sheldon Holland and his dog Django have a special affinity. When they were both posted to Afghanistan in 2011, the two became buddies. Sheldon was a former explosives handler with the US American K9 Detection Services, and Django was his pal at the time.
They were together for 18 months.
After their assignment in Afghanistan, Sheldon had to go home to Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. The sad news was he couldn’t take Django with him. He promised he would go back and take him home.
It took more than two years to complete the process. Sheldon’s faith never wavered throughout the long and painful procedure. He was dead set on reclaiming Django, no matter how long it took. After all, he had promised to return for him and take him home.
Sheldon has finally met Django after nearly two years apart. He was nervous, delighted, and unable to think clearly.
In Kempton Park, Django was quarantined. As part of the routine, he was taken to the quarantine kennels at O.R. Tambo International Airport. Sheldon was going to meet him there.
Sheldon arrived at Kempton Park as reporters and other media outlets prepared to chronicle the touching event. Sheldon and Django will reconcile after a two-year separation.
Django was inside the institution, separated from Sheldon only by a gate. Sheldon walked up to the gate and positioned himself so Django could see his face well. Django began wagging his tail and yanking his handler’s leash as soon as the guards opened the gate. Sheldon, on the other hand, kept shouting at Django to catch his attention.
When they felt it was safe, they let go of Django and immediately sprinted to his owner. They hugged each other, and Sheldon couldn’t help but give his dog lots and lots of kisses.
“I promised I’d come to get you. “I warned you, my kid,” I said. Sheldon could be heard telling his good old pal that. They posed for pictures before taking a little stroll nearby. When you see Sheldon and Django together, you can feel their joy.
Sheldon was ultimately able to return him to his rightful home. They had a good time together, and Sheldon claimed Django adored going to the beach. He’s having the time of his life, gaining some weight as a result of the treats he received for being such a good buy.
