They say absence makes the heart grow fonder — and for one senior dog and her soldier owner, the proof is in the video.

Thirteen-year-old Buddy was lying down when her un-identified owner returned home from military training for the holidays, the Daily Mail reports. The Golden Retriever, who reportedly is loosing her hearing and has arthritis, seems to lose her ailments when her “momma,” who’d been away for more than three months, surprised her.

The emotional reunion shows Buddy coming to life when she sees her soldier — pawing and kissing her human, all while her tail wags with joy.

“ … Though despite her elderly age [Buddy] was absolutely thrilled to see me and couldn’t even stay on her feet,” the soldier reportedly said. “I missed her dearly and hope I can see her again soon.”

At the end of the day, or after returning from a long absence, a good puppy pampering is guaranteed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
