Dog overcome with joy after owner returns home from 10-month deployment

SACRAMENTO, California -- Military homecomings are emotional affairs -- not just for families, but for pets too.

Army soldier Cassandra Cabrera returned home after a 10-month deployment in Africa. She was afraid her dog, Miss May, wouldn't remember her.

Miss May was only a puppy when she was called overseas. As she found out, pets don't forget their owners.

Miss May immediately recognized Cabrera and embraced her with lots of licks to the face.
