An elderly dog couldn’t contain her excitement when her owner, a U.S. Army soldier, came home after being gone for months.

Hannah Foraker said she was blessed to get two week off for Christmas and when she got home, her golden retriever Buddy ran out to greet her.

Buddy is 13 years old, suffers from arthritis and is losing her hearing but despite all that she was thrilled to see Foraker for the first time in 3 1/2 months. In the video, Buddy is heard crying in excitement.

The video was posted on YouTube in late February and has more than 90,000 views.
