Exuberant Canine Pushes Kid Out Of The Way To Welcome Daddy Home

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.

The dog is more excited than the man’s son.

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.

The boy gets a quick hug from dad.

“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!”

Not to be outdone, doggy goes in for more.

“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.”
