Two deceased dogs in the middle of a bustling market recognized each other from a distance, sparking an accidental yet heartwarming family reunion that is touching everyone’s hearts.
In Seattle, Washington, Kaitlin Hawkins and her companion were strolling around the Pike Place Market when Mai, Kaitlin’s puppy, suddenly sprinted in the direction of a strange dog.
The other dog looked to be around the same age as Mai and was a Golden Retriever. The other dog, named Juniper, became equally excited as they drew near, and their human companions acknowledged that something was amiss.
The people realized their adopted dogs were actually siblings from Rwanda after speaking with one another. The 11-month-old dogs, who are both from Rwanda, were flown to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in May to be adopted.
The fact that the puppies found each other in the market, which receives 15 million visitors annually, made them all the more remarkable as they rolled around and hugged each other in their random manner. A vendor at Pik Place named Pam Corwin tweeted the entire event and recorded the incredible family reunion.
She writes, “I saw the coolest thing today.” “I was at my bed at the Pikes Place Market when I noticed two strangers heading toward each other while carrying distinctive dogs. The dogs suddenly began to run towards one another and went completely crazy.
“I came over to watch because it was so adorable, and as I was standing there taking it all in, the people realized that the dogs are brothers and flew in on the same plane to be adopted from Russia a year ago!
“The dogs recognized one another! They even got identifying tattoos to prove it.
“This joystick demonstration lasted for more than half an hour; in fact, they were still doing it when I left the market”
