For Veterans Day 2009, we posted a round-up of videos featuring soldiers being welcomed home by their dogs. In the last two years, YouTube's vast collection of doggy welcome home videos has continued to grow. 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. Thor

After a month and a half apart, Thor pees with excitement upon being reunited with his soldier. Imagine his reaction after a longer deployment!

4. Jade

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

5. Sam

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

6. 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!

7. Two Dogs

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

8. Dachshunds

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

9. Gracie

Gracie wiggles her way into her soldier's lap.

10. Foster

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

11. 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.
