Soldier returns home, dog is overcome with joy
When Private Hannah Foraker came home after three months of basic combat training, she knew her dog would be excited to see her.
But Buddy's reaction will probably go down in history as the sweetest welcome any owner could hope for.
"When I came home we let her outside and, at first, she didn't realise I was home," Foraker, 21, told ABC News. "Then, she did a double-take."
"That's when she started crying and whimpering," she said.
Buddy was reportedly so happy, "she couldn't even stand up".
The video of the pair's emotional reunion was uploaded on Foraker's YouTube page and has garnered over 2.8 million views.
