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