Three years ago we hosted an exchange student from India for a year. Our second week that he was with us we got Summer as a 9 week old GSP pup. Our 17 year-old exchange student had never had a pet, and didn't even know how to pick up the pup that would become the love of his life.
He lived with us for a year and practically raised Summer, took her to the park, took her swimming, did her training classes totally fell in love with the dog. His mom started telling him that he could forget about getting a dog when he got back to India because she could tell how much he enjoyed having a pet.
When his departure was approaching, all he was concerned about was would Summer remember him. We even had to take Summer with us to the airport when he left. Now, two years later, he is coming to visit for two weeks and again has started asking will Summer remember him and I certainly hope so or this kid may be a little hurt....
So, any input on this? Do you think she will?
Dogs remember everything. My bet is she will...
I'd be VERY surprised if she doesn't remember him. He raised her and was there during her puppy year. They don't forget.
