My husband and I both really love our dogs. They are our kids and I can see us agreeing to to momentarily forego our much longer lasting joy & appreciation in being reunited to enjoy, record and laugh at the reaction of our pets in being reunited, too. If they both were excited to see what the cats would do, that’s up to them. Certainly his arrival was preplanned and his focus was on the cat as well. No one knows this couples relationship and what is important to them together. Their love & happiness in their reunion together will be just as happy & appreciated if they waited 2 minutes to see what would happen & film it.
