He meant it in a sweet way!
This is Ryan Niemchick, 21, and his mom Li Chun. They live in Michigan. A few years ago, Ryan left home for college.
But Alex, their family pupper, still regularly waits right outside Ryan’s bedroom door as though he never left for school, Li Chun told BuzzFeed News.
She said it was “sad and sweet” that he waits for her absent son. Ryan said Alex stands vigil for him “at least a few times per week,” and sometimes more after Ryan visits home and then leaves again. “I love him,” the college student said of the loyal little fluff.
