The dog, whose name is Loki, and the soldier, who introduced himself as Micro Junior, have served together for years as devoted friends and would be spending their final National Day together since they would be parting ways shortly.
We have navigated the minefields of life together over the years, and he is my true buddy, therefore this is our last independence celebration because we will be splitting up soon, the soldier stated.
The soldier is from Sarawak, according to a social media search.
The video was posted on the Panggilan Pertiwi Facebook page on Friday, and he added in a remark, “I will be retiring because my service is coming to an end (Sept 2).
Defense Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein even took notice, thanking both of them for their commitment and wishing them the best in the future.
“I was moved when I viewed the images, and I want to thank Micro Junior for his commitment and dedication. The Micro Junior-Loki partnership will be cherished and remembered forever.
With its new master, Loki hopefully will continue to succeed, said Hishammuddin.
The 25-second video has received nearly 80,000 views, 3,200 Facebook reactions, and an additional 56,000 TikTok likes so far.
