Deaf And Blind Dog Reunited With Her Grandpa After A Year Apart

We’ve been facing a world-wide pandemic for over a year now. Fortunately, with vaccinations happening in a lot more countries, the world is starting to open up again.

That means that we’re able to see our loved ones after months of having to socially distance or maintain relationships strictly in a virtual setting.

But it isn’t just humans who’ve experienced the downside of separation. Our pets have also had to adjust to not seeing certain people as frequently as they might be used to.

However, because of the length of time that they hadn’t seen each other, he was worried that Bitsy wouldn’t remember him.

However, the reunion quickly proved to him that he had nothing to worry about.
