There’s nothing like a good homecoming, and this one is no exception.
The father in this video has likely spent several months away from his family. When he returns in uniform, his young boy is eager to welcome daddy home.
But the family dog has other plans.
Not to be outdone, the jazzed up canine gives his human a big hug and dances around in excitement.
…i know that scent… it’s Him, i’m SURE…
Oh GOSH!! i s l i d e across the floor!!
It’s DAD! He’s BACK, my favorite guy!!
in to his arms I jump up High!
the babe runs in, excited, too
but Please Dad I want ALL OF YOU!!
a little hug…ok, he’s fine
Now back to ME!!
Other Redditors had more to say.
“Come here boy! Jump up! I’ve got you!” commented u/FIimbosQuest. “Oh yeah, hi son. Come here boy! I’ve missed you!”
“Love that ‘giant wall of fur and happy,’ that is a big dog. And I bet that little kid loves the dog almost as much as his parents, so I’m guessing this won’t be too sad-making for him. After all he has his dad back!” wrote u/mittens11111.
“To be fair the dog is way more excited about his best friend being back home than his son,” commented u/zuzg. “Imagine humans getting excited like dogs to see each other again.”
“Mike you’re back, I missed you so much!”
“I was only in the kitchen for 5 minutes? But yeah same, dunno why but same!”
“That dog is easily around 100 pounds and is uncontrollably excited,” commented u/jsbisviewtiful. “The dude is probably a good father and not trying to get his kid curb stomped by the fluff tornado.”
“Upvoted for ‘fluff tornado,'” remarked u/Hardheaded_Hunter. “Coincidentally, that was my GSD’s nickname.”
