Delighted Dog, Daisy, Welcomes Soldier Home (VIDEO)

In this heartwarming video, watch as a returning U.S. Airman is ecstatically greeted by her loving dog, Daisy.

The happy beagle and her owner, Amanda R., had been apart for six months -- the length of the soldier's deployment.

"Our beagle was still a puppy when she left and was full grown dog by the time she came back," said Amanda's husband, who captured the long-awaited reunion on camera.

"I wasn't expecting the reaction I received from her," wrote Amanda on the Welcome Home Blog. "It was the best feeling in the world."

The little beagle is fast becoming an Internet sensation, with the video attracting more than 96,000 views in two days.
