will my dog remember me?

it's been a while since i have been here. i was talking about moving and didn't know to take my dog or not. unfortunately i had to leave him... he was crying alot when i hugged him and left. i didn't like that at all. i been thinking about him ever since almost everyday... it's been almost five months now. i couldn't take him cause i had to stay with my uncle and he didn't want dogs around. so i left him with my dad and brother who the dog already knows. the flight for the dog to come to me is a bit pricey but i will work it out in a week or so and bring him here. i am just wondering if he will remember me? i've heard stories that people leave their dogs for a year or more and come back and they remember?

i have been good to my dog and i bathed him and took him for long walks everyday. he slept with me in my bed almost everyday... i played with him and loved him alot. but my dad and bro are saying he is happy and having a good time. i don't want him to forget me :/

any thoughts on this? stories would be nice to give me some hope.

p.s: he is 2 years old atm. we got him at 3 months old.

Your dog will remember you.

I was walking my black lab at the area dog park a while back when we passed someone walking the opposite direction.

My dog broke rank, ran around in front of the person and sat down in front of her, blocking the trail. I caught up and apologized, saying, "I'm so sorry. I don't know what got into him."

The woman responded, "Oh, I do. I gave him a treat about a year ago."

I could also tell the story about a dog I surrendered to my parents. She always remembered me and was happy to see me when I visited, but she made it very clear that she had a new life with my folks and was not interested in returning to the old one.

Your dog will remember you, but don't assume that his is pining for you day and night.

I don't mean to be a downer, but it had to be said.
