Okay, brace yourself!  If you're a dog lover like me then this video is going to make you tear-up and then laugh for a couple of reasons!

First, this sweet dog named Emmitt seems to somehow sense that his best friend is home following a long deployment and runs to the door to greet him with a ton of slobbery kisses.

Second, when Emmitt stands on his hind legs -- he's actually taller than his 'dad!'   Then, of course, duty calls and the camera goes to black.  Too funny.
