Soldier Coming Home Uses “What The Fluff” Challenge To SURPRISE His Devoted Dog!
Best ‘What The Fluff’ challenge surprise ever! (Video)
As I’m sure you’re aware, the ‘What The Fluff’ challenge has been doing the rounds lately, and frankly, this may be the best What The Fluff Challenge video of them all. However, when it’s incorporated with a video of a soldier returning home, you just know it’s going to hit you right in the feels. I don’t know why, but when an animal is involved like this, it always seems to be more emotional. This loyal golden knows his family is just trying to cheer him up because he’s been a little depressed ever since his dad was deployed.
Zephyr, the Golden Retriever, has heard this song and dance many times before… but just when he thinks he knows what’s about to happen, his family pulls off the best surprise ever! This is Zephyr’s dad, Kevin Coburn, who arrived house after 9 months in Fort Bragg the place he had been coaching for the Particular Forces Qualification course. Whereas everybody was very excited to have him house, nobody was happier than his 4-year-old Golden Retriever. In the video, Kevin’s brother starts off the challenge, but it looks like the dog is saying: “You know, I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck. Can we speed this thing along? I’ve got a toy to play with.”
It’s the moment he has been waiting for!
When his brother drops the blanket, though, unlike other What The Fluff challenges where the person disappears, this time, someone else stands on the other side of the curtain. But then the big reveal happens and the dog loses his cool completely. He can barely even believe his eyes, momentarily stunned. Then, Zephyr brings it in for the real thing. The sweet pup lets out round after round of almost human-like cries and whimpers of joy, his tail thumping a mile a minute the entire time! He spends the rest of the video in a state of pure bliss, curling around his soldier’s legs and loving on him and all those other things a dog does when he spots the apple of his eye. Watch this heartwarming video, it’s understandably gone viral, which just goes to show everybody loves a happy reunion! Guess these pranks aren’t always so bad, huh, Zephyr’?
