A dad’s heartwarming reaction to being reunited with the family dog has been caught on camera and has left internet users in tears.
Uploaded to TikTok account Emma the Dog and Keats the Human, the video shows the man driving while the mother, who is filming, sits in the passenger seat and gives him directions.
It’s clear that the dad doesn’t know where he’s going and soon he’s driving down a road he doesn’t recognise, but suddenly he clicks and realises what’s happening.
As tears well in his eyes and sounding giddy with excitement, he says: “Is she here? You’re not lying? Where is she?” before parking the car and pulling into a car park.
The full story was told in two clips, in the first the man is driving to the centre and then in the second, which was demanded by many TikTok users, he is reunited with his pet pooch.
Viewed over two million times, the video has struck a chord with social media users and many people commented on the video.
One said: “Aww makes me miss my dog but he’s only outside.”
And a second said: “Yep, cried thinking about not seeing my dog.”
A third user, Michele Lasorsa-Rive, said: “I’m laughing and crying all at the same time .”
While Vix Sullivan added: “I know exactly how he feels, I moved from Australia to the UK and my dog get here four months later, best feeling in the world.”
And Aisling McGivern said: “Been crying for the past 20 mins at this.”
