(Newser) Mediaite takes note of a blog for returning US soldiers called the Welcome Home Blog, whose latest entry features a star turn by a huge dog with the spectacular name of Emmitt Thunderpaws who is thrilled to see his human buddy home safely. "Seriously, I don’t think there’s ever going to be a better video out there for patriotic Americans and dog-lovers alike," writes Jon Bershad.

The unidentified family's note on the blog: “After a long 9 months apart, our dog, Emmitt Thunderpaws, is REALLY HAPPY to see his favorite person again! He smelled him in the house and then ran outside to greet him. Dogs are awesome :)”

There is a better (more heart-warming) video: Their story is pretty touching as well.

Now train the dog to attack the ones who keep these wars going.
