Great Dane welcomes home soldier with big hug

And now for an awesome feel good moment! Emmitt Thunderpants, a Great Dane, had been waiting patiently for nine long months while his owner was away serving his country. The video shows him sniffing around the house and getting more and more excited, until the door is opened and his owner calls for him.

The joy in the dog, and his soldier best friend, is clearly evident as they finally see each other. It’s a truly beautiful homecoming.
