This dog ran into their guardian’s arms after nine months of being apart:

This dog let out squeals of delight at seeing their guardian again:

This dog who missed her daddy:

This dog who welcomed her dad home:

This dog who was overjoyed to have her mom back:

This dog’s reunion with her mom was a star-studded affair on The Queen Latifah Show:

This dog who could hardly believe her “dada” was home:

This dog who just wanted to give his human kisses:

And it’s not just dogs—watch this cat jump into his soldier’s arms at 1:18:

Welcome home, troops!
