This shows how loyal dogs are. They do not hold a grudge like felines do. We have both and the dogs are much better companions, especially a mongrel that was dropped off in the drive almost 16 years ago. She is pacing the floor with crossed legs right now wanting a nature call.

You know dogs. He could leave the house for 20 minutes on any given day, and they would greet him exact the same way when he got home.

You're sad.

That's right, the whole world is a bunch of liars and this soldier had nothing better to do than fake a 'coming home.'

Classic.

Agree 100% SLB ! Pup’s are protective of family and me and all they seek is a little love, shelter and some grub for their loyalty.

Great video!

I like the way that, at about :40 seconds in, the black dog just stands off and barks again and again.

That is one excited and happy dog!

Not our dog - we leave the house for a couple hours and she’s pretty happy to see us when we get back, but when my husband leaves for a few days and comes home, she goes NUTS for much longer and then won’t leave his side for hours.

Great video. You can almost imagine what they’re thinking - “Whew, he’s finally home! Where ya been, man?!”

I didn’t say the soldier faked anything. I was commenting on the behavior of dogs.

I had a dog that went nuts like that every morning to wake me up so she could play with me.

Thanks for posting this. What a great find. As a dedicated cat lover I still found this to be the sweetest video I've seen in YEARS.

WOOF! WOOF!

And welcome home, soldier. Thanks for your service.
