Dog cries for joy at sight of deployed owner

Dog cries for joy at sight of deployed owner

Every morning on Morning Express with Robin Meade, we salute the men & women who serve in the armed forces... and every now and then we salute their K-9 counterparts, too. Some of the most memorable salutes we've featured on HLN involve military working dogs like Ivy and Nugget, who came and visited us on set last year. We're very happy to report that they were both quickly adopted. If you're interested in adopting your own Ivy or Nugget visit the Baghdad Pups section of the the SPCA International's website.

Then there was Bino, who was such a good boy while his human Debbie told us about her organization, Military Working Dog Adoptions and the Hero Dog Awards!  We were very exited to learn that Bino WON the award for dogs in the military category! Voting is now open for this year's awards.
