10 soldiers welcomed home by very happy dogs

Who's a good boy?

In recent years years, YouTube's collection of doggy welcome home videos has exploded. Before we begin, you might want to grab some tissues.

1. PRINCESS
This soldier gets a face-lickingly warm welcome home from Princess, the tiniest dog in our collection.

2. EMITT THUNDERPAWS
At the other end of the size spectrum is Emitt Thunderpaws, a Great Dane, who displays uncharacteristic behaviors as he welcomes home his soldier.

3. JADE
When her soldier walks through the door, Jade begins to cry.

4. SAM
All poodle Sam wants is hugs when soldier Brian returns home. (Check out the cat's reaction in the background, too.)

5. FRIGHTENED SCHNAUZER
At first, Keith's schnauzer barks at the "intruder" in the house, but then the dog gets a good whiff of his old friend!

6. TWO DOGS
These two dogs just want to play; the black dog manages to hang onto his rope toy through the whole joyous reunion.

7. DACHSHUNDS
Both these dachshunds are pretty happy to see their soldier again, but the little one has more staying power.

8. GRACIE
Gracie wiggles her way into her soldier's lap.

9. FOSTER
Foster is pretty slow and steady until he spots his soldier outside...

10. PATRICK
The first female soldier in our post today is welcomed home by her enthusiastic puppy.

To all members of the military, we thank you for your service. Maybe not as enthusiastically as your doggies, but still.
