Take 40 seconds or so to watch this YouTube video of a dog welcoming home its owner, a returning solider. I am not surprised it has gotten more than 2 million page views, but I am surprised by how many home videos there are of dogs welcoming home soldiers.

There are a bunch of them on the right-hand side of the YouTube video I linked to above. Is this the 2010 version of the Norman Rockwell painting of a soldier's homecoming?
