After a year, retired Air Force sergeant reunited with service dog from Iraq

They were partners while serving in Iraq. Now they'll get to enjoy retirement together.




Retired Air Force Tech. Sgt. David Simpson flew to Germany to be reunited with Robbie, his former canine partner from their time in Iraq, MyFoxTampaBay.com reports.

The two hadn't seen each other since last year, but Robbie ran to Simpson and began playing with him as if the two had never been seperated. Cameras captured their reunion, and though the footage is only 18 seconds, it still packs an emotional wallop.

Simpson retired from the Air Force last year. Robbie continued on until recently, when it was finally time for him to hang up his collar.

The two will reportedly enjoy their time together in Simpson's hometown of Mulberry, Fla., along with Simpson's three children, according to MyFoxTampaBay.com.

Simpson told MyFoxTampaBay.com that his goal is to let Robbie "have as much fun and relaxation for the rest of his life. I just want him to enjoy his retirement."

UPDATE! Simpson and Robby are now back home together in Florida: http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/story/24...

ORIGINAL STORY: Air Force Technical Sergeant David Simpson of Mulberry flew all the way to Germany to reunite with his four-legged partner, and the video of their reunion will touch your heart.

The two worked side by side for four years in Iraq, patrolling the streets and conducting security checks at military bases.

Sgt. Simpson retired last year, while Robby, his dog, continued in service. Now, Robby is retiring as well, so Simpson flew to halfway across the globe to adopt him.

Following this reunion, they're flying back to Florida to enjoy retirement together.
