Best Friend Dogs Reunited After Months Apart

This is the adorable moment two best-friend dogs were finally reunited after being separated for months during COVID-19 restrictions. The beautiful video of Labrador retrievers Danish and Nora reuniting on a California beach touched the hearts of millions all over the world after being shared online. Danish and Nora attended Guide Dogs for the Blind, a school that trains guide dogs to serve people who are blind or visually impaired at no cost to them, in San Rafael, California. After their studies and on weekends, they would often head to a dog-friendly beach where they would play together and let off steam. Danish's owner, Priscilla Blanco, 27, said despite being extremely talented, Danish and Nora eventually went through what the school calls a “career change” process. As a result, Danish and Nora were both adopted by people with ties to the school, allowing them to keep up their regular playdates. But with COVID-19 striking the U.S., those meetings were put on hold for months while their owners were apart. Then, back in August, Priscilla got a call to say Nora’s owner would be in town, so she decided they should head to San Quentin Beach, where the dogs shared so many memories. With Danish walking around on the beach and taking in the smells, Nora suddenly came over the top of a small mound that leads down to the beach. Priscilla managed to capture the moment the pair then locked eyes, and as soon as they did, Nora, a black Labrador retriever, came hurtling down the steps to see her best friend. Danish and Nora then hopped around excitedly before later running off to play together.
