SEATAC, WA - A former Marine corporal has been reunited with the military working dog he says meant everything to him when he served in Afghanistan. And if the yellow Lab named Thor was a little distracted when he arrived at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, that's OK.
    
Deano Miller says the two have lots of time to get reacquainted after four years apart.
    
Their reunion Thursday marked the end of a long effort to adopt the dog he worked with for seven months in 2010. Since then, Thor served alongside several more handlers in combat while Miller re-established a life in his hometown of Tacoma.
    
The adoption was aided by two groups that work to bring military war dogs back to the U.S. from combat abroad.
    
The 25-year-old Miller says Thor "was the only thing that kept me going every day."
