Retired Military Dog Meets Kitten for the First Time (VIDEO)

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Internet sensations may seem like the norm, however, some take awhile to go viral. The video of a retired military dog and kitten may have taken a few years to gain notoriety, but is finally receiving the attention it deserves.

The dog in the YouTube video, Chef, served two tours of duty in Iraq and one in Africa detecting explosives and working as a patrol dog. He may have served his country in the danger zone, but when he arrived home he faced the true test—meeting a kitten for the first time. Chef seems a bit unsure of the tiny,white kitten and decides to investigate. The result is truly heartwarming.

The video shot back in 2010 by owner, Louisa Vaughan, has just recently gained viral success with over 900,000 views and over 600 comments.

We hope the video was the beginning of a long friendship between the adorable feline and brave canine.
