A Soldier Returns From Deployment & Surprises His Dog In The Best Way

We know that dogs love us, but there are some moments that just remind us in a bigger way than others. When a soldier returned after an 11-month deployment, he decided to surprise his best friend — his dog.

To surprise his dog, the man hid under a blanket on the couch while the dog was out of the house, but you know that didn't fool the fur ball for long.

The dog immediately noticed the weird human-shaped couch lump and, naturally, began to investigate.
