There are few things more heartwarming than a long-awaited homecoming.

This video comes courtesy of the Heath Veterinary Clinic in West Sussex, UK — some six months after Jasper the Whippet had been reported as missing/stolen, he was brought into one of the vet's locations. According to the clinic:

Rhian, one of our vets, checked him over and scanned him for a microchip and it was discovered that he was registered to an address in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire and had been reported missing/stolen in September 2014. In the meantime Jasper had been sold to a woman who had looked after him for the last 3 months.

Awww. I think the only way Jasper could be more excited is if his owner was wrapped in bacon and had a squirrel sitting on his head. Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I have something in my eye. (It's a bunch of tears.)
