For Gary Sides, he couldn't get home soon enough on Monday. He was gone 12 days and couldn't wait to wrap his arms around who was waiting for him at home in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Sides opened the door and there she was barking happily, jumping for joy and super excited to see him.

"I was the same way because I missed her so much while I was gone. We are inseparable," Sides said.

Sides, unfortunately, couldn't take his dog, Stinky, with him as he attended a wedding on the East Coast.

He said he wished he could have taken her with him, but instead had his daughter babysit her.

He said it was hard to leave her.

"I cried. I'm very sentimental and I seen her cry so it broke my heart," Sides added. "Just because she was sad, I was sad. I'm emotionally attached to her."

Sides said he got the dog three years ago as a 3-month-old puppy after somebody dumped her. When he saw her, he immediately named her "Stinky."

"The reason being, as soon as I seen her I knew I was going to spoil her rotten," Sides said.

Sides is currently working on making Stinky a therapy dog.
