After spending nine months waiting at home while his owner served in the military, Emmitt Thunderpaws the Great Dane is understandably very excited to see his soldier again.
The cutest part might be how excited he gets before they even see each other. Just the smell of his buddy gets his tail wagging. If this video doesn't put some d'aww in your afternoon, nothing will.
Watch the adorable clip above. For more dogs welcoming home their soldiers, see the slideshow below, and for more videos of military homecomings, visit the Welcome Home Blog.
