Meanwhile, the cat is hiding in the bushes.

As a dog owner, I'm unimpressed with most of the videos in the "dog goes crazy when family member returns" genre. Because most of those clips feature dogs acting exactly how a lot of dogs act when their owners return from the grocery store. Or say the word "treat." I could make the front page of reddit with a clip of me walking through the door wearing an army jacket with a sqeaky toy in the pocket.

This clip is the real deal. The Schnauzer absolutely loses when it sees a family member who's been away from home for two years, and is so overcome with joy that he passes out with excitement. (Note: no matter what you hear, the dog is fine. And loud.)
