What began as a regular potty break turned into a heartwarming reunion.

The owner gathers four of her five dogs together before letting them outside and once they're let loose, we see one of the Great Danes make a beeline for the storage shed. It's almost as if he knew what was waiting for him. Then, the other dogs follow and they find their soldier waiting with the same amount of excitement, if not more.

As the other dogs happily romp around their owner, taking turns jumping up on their hind legs to hug him and lick his face, another dog enters the scene. Once his turn to embrace the soldier comes, he just stares into his face while his owner assures him it's really who he thinks it is.
