For dog lovers, there's nothing quite like the welcome home greeting these four-legged companions give regardless of the day you've had.
But for one soldier, returning home after an eight-month deployment was enough to make his boxer, Chuck, beyond overwhelmed with joy.
All it took was two words to make Chuck go crazy, "Daddy's home."
Chuck leapt out of the back of an SUV, as if on cue, once he heard those words that his owner, a soldier name Nick, was back.
The boxer can hardly contain himself when he sees his owner, jumping all over Nick, licking him, and yelping with happiness.
The joyful reunion was posted to YouTube by Nick's wife, Katie. It's been up less than a week and has already had more than a million views.
