Little Boy and Dog Both Extremely Excited to See Dad [Video]

boy and dog happy to see dad

“After a long day, baby and dog are very excited for Daddy to pull into the driveway!” writes Natalie G in the understated description of a video she posted on YouTube Sept. 22.

“Daddy!” the toddler yells, standing at the screen door with a Poodle mix by his side.

“It’s Daddy!” his mom responds. “Are you waving to him?”

Yes, the toddler is waving to him. And his excitement quickly grows as the dad pulls his car into the driveway. Soon the boy and his dog are both doing an adorable happy dance together.

The 36-second video has been viewed more than 1.1 million times.

It’s too bad there’s not a version of “Dancing with the Stars” or “So You Think You Can Dance” for dogs, because this Poodle and this little day-care dog who was super excited to see his dad would make “pawfect” partners.
