Video of Retired Military Dog Meeting a Kitten Goes Viral

Via Yahoo News, and other sources on the Web, we’ve discovered the immensely sweet video embedded above.

The video, uploaded over three years ago by Army vet Louisa Vaughan, features her dog, Chef — a retired military, bomb detecting canine, then fresh off of two tours of duty in Africa and Iraq — playing gently with a kitten. Simple and pleasurable as that, and for some reason only recently discovered by the greater Web.

You can find out more about Chef, a remarkable animal by any estimation, by visiting his page on the Sage Foundation for Dogs Who Serve website.
