Elderly dog cries with joy as soldier returns home

Here's a reunion that's sure to melt your heart.

Late last year, 21-year-old Hannah Foraker left her home in Cleveland to go to Army basic training at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. That meant she had to leave behind her beloved 13-year-old golden retriever, Buddy.

When Foraker returned home for two weeks for the winter holidays, the reunion between her and Buddy was incredibly emotional.

Foraker posted a video of the heartwarming reunion to YouTube, and it's quickly gone viral. Watch it for a big smile...
