WARNING: You may wish to view the following video with ear plugs in.

WARNING #2: You may not stop smiling for hours after doing so.

The footage below depicts a schnauzer’s reaction to seeing a family member return after a two-year absence.

At first, the dog jumps for joy and emits a piercing shriek that leaves his owner confused and laughing. The canine then topples over and briefly passes out from excitement.

SERIOUSLY!

It's okay to watch and enjoy because the owner says the dog was later taken to the vet and everything checked out fine.

For more excitingly adorable pet action, check out this video of a dog crying in the lap of its soldier best friend.

Then, be moved to happy tears via this photo gallery of dogs and babies:

Yuck! No dog and no other kind of animal would be allowed to breathe their germy rotten breath in my childs face. That is not healthy.

Yeah, because we all know that kid's breath is always clean and sterile. (eyeroll)

Good thing there were not cops around or they would have shot these animals.

The dog may have Cataplexy. Cataplexy is an abrupt temporary loss of voluntary muscular function and tone, evoked by an emotional stimulus such as laughter, pleasure, anger, or excitement. Cataplexy can be confused with seizures, especially if you are not familiar with the differing symptoms. If you suspect cataplexy is occuring, look for the following signs (signs in dogs are the same): it occurs rapidly. it occurs during times of emotional stimulation the person recovers almost immediately the person is responsive during the event A seizure will occur during quiet times as well as periods of stimulation and generally has more warning signs. After a seizure, the person will recover more slowly and may not remember what happened.

I was thinking along those lines, or simply a heart condition.
