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.

if you don't want to read all this stuff i wrote.. just skip down to where i ask a question. sorry for the long post...

hey guys. well i finally got my lil scruffy friend. it's been five months since i left him. long time, went so fast. had alot of arguements and emotional times throughout these months. my father and brother have grown attached to him but somehow i just don't see it being as much as i am... i took him for his first walk.. he slept with me all the time when he was a pup. i bathed him. took him for three hour walks almost everyday. i see myself as the boss of this dog. i love him very much. i have cried a couple times because of my father telling me he'll send him and repeatedly lied to me but finally i got him tonight.

was a very tough night. i don't know the place i live in very much and was calling everyone to take me to the airport but no one would. too busy or too late. so i took a chance and i drove down and took directions from my cousin. i made it there...


now this is what im wondering... when i first saw him in the cage it wasnt what i expected, loud moans and excited. he was a bit weird when he first heard me call him and saw me from the cage. it was like he was in trouble slinking towards me. but as soon as he came out the cage he was jumping on me and wagging his tail (just not as much as i thought he would... as if i went out for an hour and just came back)

when i brought him home he was playing with my old slippers he use to play with and seemed as normal as when i left him. so that's good. he's sleeping right now. poor thing was in that cage for about eight hours :/

is this normal ?
