Golden Retrievers are so loving. They are great family pets and get along with pretty much everyone — even other pets. Look at the bond between a Golden named Wesley and his little fur-sibling named Winnie. The two had the sweetest reunion after Winnie had a hospital stay. And luckily the whole thing was caught on camera.

Poor Winnie had been battling a case of Parvo, which meant she had to take an extended trip to the animal hospital.

The clip shows Winston greeting Winnie for the first time since she went away. The adult Golden ran down the steps, eager to see his sister. Right away the two Golden Retrievers were so excited to see each other. Their tails were wagging so fast and they started smelling each to say hello.

People in the comments section were relieved to see that Winnie was okay. "Yay!!! Welcome home sweet Winnie!" cheered one commenter. "Made me cry!! So happy she’s home!!" another person exclaimed. "I’m so happy to hear she’s doing better," a third commenter chimed in. While another commenter remarked on how sweet their reunion was. "The tails tell the story," they wrote.

More About Parvo

Canine Parvovirus (CPV) is an extremely contagious disease caused by canine parvovirus type 2 (CPV-2). There are several different strains of CPV-2 that produce similar symptoms. But the disease that all these strains are called is usually just called "Parvo."

Common signs of Parvo are lethargy, loss of appetite, vomiting, severe or bloody diarrhea, abdominal pain or bloating, fever or low body temperature.

The disease is spread easily from direct contact with infected dogs, contact with their feces, or contact with virus-contaminated surfaces. One place where Parvo is often spread are kennels, although anytime dogs are sharing things like food or water bowls, collars or leashes, or several dogs are being handled by one person, there is risk that Parvo will spread.

If your dog does contract Parvo they need to be separated from other dogs immediately. It's best to disinfect where your dog typically sleeps in the house and their food and water bowl. A veterinarian can also help you with tips on how to disinfect your home and kill the virus that might be lingering on surfaces.

Puppies are very susceptible to the disease, so it's important to get them vaccinated. Having good hygiene practices is another way to keep the virus from spreading.

If Parvo isn't caught early, it can be deadly. So if you see any signs that your dog has caught the virus make sure to call your veterinarian ASAP.
