When Tim came home from his first tour in Iraq I asked him if he could take some time for a couple photos of Barney and him.
Tim agreed and came home one afternoon, put his uniform on and we shot some awesome photos.
I remember Tim saying, "Dad, Barney is really hugging me!"
I thought to myself, "You bet he is, he is hugging you for all of us!" Welcome home son!
(I kept these flowers in the back ground alive by covering them with my car cover through three frosts)

In the Coming Home photo essay.

    Dogs are amazing, in how they really know what to do to make us know and feel their love. I pray that your son stays safe throughout this hard time. I have a few friends and family over seas, and its rough. God Bless.
